Extracurricular Activities

Notre Dame Academy offers a wide variety of after-school extracurricular activities.  

These programs are meant to enhance the unique talents of each student outside of the classroom, while strengthening core values like teamwork and leadership.  

Girl Scouts

The mission of Girl Scouts is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Girls from Kindergarten through 12th grade are joined in troops by grade level. At ND Academy, we have active troops in many grades and are hoping to create more!

 Kids-Tech TECH Class

In our Tech-Class, students are offered an introduction to the ground-breaking technology they will need to thrive in an increasingly competitive and exciting world. Our belief is that the faster children can become acquainted with technology in a structured and directed manner, the more they will be able to flourish with it. In our classes, we endeavor to turn toys into tools as we teach the students what technology is and how it operates in their daily lives. We work with everything from Drones to Virtual Reality to 3-D Printers and even build our own APPS! Our pupils are hands on, learning what the machines can do in a fun and structured manner.

Children who enroll in the Suzuki Violin Program at Notre Dame Academy will attend group lessons twice each week, after school on Mondays and Wednesdays. Students will be separated into two age-appropriate groups.

  • The older group (gr 3 -5) will be held from 4:14-5:15, with a supervised study hall and snack time prior to class.  

Students will be expected to practice their new skills at home.  Parents are invited (but not required) to observe the lessons and expected to encourage home practice. Students will perform for parents in December and May. Ms. Kane will send out weekly email updates to keep you informed and help you encourage your child at home. Lessons will begin on September 19.
