Lower School

Grade 1 - Grade 5

Welcome to Notre Dame Academy’s Lower School. We serve students in grades 1-5 by focusing on five pillars: Faith, Knowledge, Service, Fitness, and Technology.

At Notre Dame Academy, our pillar of faith is inspired and guided by Gospel principles and the charism of the Marist order. As part of our knowledge pillar, the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program offers a unique learning experience for our students. We believe that service to others is a valuable component of educating the whole child, and as part of the service pillar we encourage our students to be good citizens by providing opportunities for them to put faith into action. Since we cannot adequately form the intellect without also strengthening the body, students in grades 1-5 have the benefit of daily physical education class as a component of the fitness pillar. Finally, Notre Dame Academy offers a robust technology program that includes the most advanced modern devices and a curriculum focused on digital literacy, digital citizenship, computer programming, and the utilization of business applications.

These five pillars provide key areas of focus so that, together with parents, we may help our students develop their God-given gifts and attain the fullness of human flourishing.

Thank you for your interest in Notre Dame Academy.

Warmest Regards,

Mrs. Julia Derucki
