Future Students

Welcome to Notre Dame Academy!

Thank you for your interest in NDA. We are always eager to share information about our school. Notre Dame Academy is the first regional school in the Archdiocese of Louisville. The school was formed in 2004 by St. Helen, St. Denis and St. Lawrence Schools. NDA is highly supported by the faith communities of Mary Queen of Peace and St. Lawrence Parish. At Notre Dame Academy, we set an example for our community by living our motto: Excellence in Catholic Education. Rather than tell you, we would rather you experience the unprecedented atmosphere of Notre Dame Academy firsthand. We welcome and encourage you to visit anytime.
