Grade 6 - Grade 8
I want to welcome you, as well as your student to Notre Dame Academy and to our website. Notre Dame Academy Middle School provides an environment that fosters young people with a connection to the love of learning and also nurtures the formation of character and integrity.
The process of learning at Notre Dame includes rich opportunities for growth through curiosity, discovery, investigation, creativity, problem-solving, and research. In Middle School, students collaborate with hands-on activities that enable the student to gain knowledge as a learner, but also working successfully as a group.
Our professional teachers are dedicated to providing faithful witness, a caring and respectful classroom environment, and challenging instructional experiences for our students. Notre Dame Academy recognizes that the true marking of an outstanding educator is to work to become that academic legacy, seeking out the greatness in each child. As a Marist-sponsored school, ND Academy embraces the Marist underlying philosophy that we work to educate students for life, providing formation of the heart. That teachers have a responsibility, whatever the subject matter, to open wide the horizons of their pupils.
It is an honor to work with all our families, signifying the successful role between school and home. I invite you to come and see us. Come meet our teachers and students; watch the energy and action of our 6th graders gaining their independence and observe the confidence of our 8th Graders applying their leadership to not only their academics, but to their faith.
Mrs. Julia Derucki
Principal, Middle School
