Notre Dame Academy invites you to explore our website and learn about our engaging educational programs.
Centered on the teachings of the Catholic Church, we seek to develop young minds and hearts for an active life of ever-expanding learning, physical well-being, and ongoing service to others. We are blessed with a strong community of faculty, staff and parents who are committed to providing students with the skills necessary to excel in the global world with awareness and sensitivity to the needs of others. The Five Pillars of Notre Dame Academy include:
- KNOWLEDGE: ND Academy’s full continuum International Baccalaureate (IB) accreditation from preschool through 12th grade provides a unique global learning environment with differentiated instruction to meet the academic needs of all learners.
- FAITH: We seek to form knowledgable, well-rounded students who are strong and confident in their faith. Daily prayer and weekly Mass are available to all students and families, along with religious retreats in the higher grade levels.
- SERVICE: Grade-level Service Learning Programs allow students to give back to those in need throughout our Duluth and greater Atlanta community.
- FITNESS: A rapidly growing Athletic Department, daily Physical Education class, and outdoor recess (through 5th grade) are an integral part of our Fitness For Life program.
- TECHNOLOGY: ND Academy’s school-wide Apple® Initiative gives every student the opportunity to learn and engage with iPads and MacBooks as part of our learning curriculum, as well collaboration in our TV Production Studio and use of 3D printers in our brand new MakerSpace.
