Welcome to the Notre Dame Academy Upper School! I am thrilled to be a part of this wonderful institution, and I look forward to working with the faculty and students to continue to build the school and community.
The Notre Dame Academy Upper School is a unique institution, combining the impressive tradition of Catholic education with the cutting-edge, 21st-century curriculum of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years and Diploma Programmes.
These two elements work together to create a safe, faith-filled community in a rigorous academic environment. Notre Dame Academy fosters in students Christian values and character while preparing them for success in college and the workforce.
The faculty and administration work together to ensure that students are supported and successful both inside and outside of the classroom. The ND Academy athletic program fosters sportsmanship and physical achievement, and is very proud of its excellent (and growing) coaching staff. Opportunities to participate in the fine arts also abound, with a variety of options for thespians and musicians alike.
As a staunch supporter and product of Catholic education and the IB curriculum, I am very excited about the future of Notre Dame Academy. As a prospective family, you have a unique opportunity to be a member of the Notre Dame Academy Upper School charter classes. You will be on the ground floor, helping establish traditions, clubs, and the future of a high school. Join us as we continue to create and mold an institution you can be proud to call home.
Contact me about becoming part of the Notre Dame Academy family. I look forward to discussing our vision, hearing your ideas, and sharing all that we have to offer.
Thank you and God bless,
Mr. John Henry Spann
Principal, Upper School
