Mission Statement

The Academy of Notre Dame, Tyngsboro - a private, Catholic school, sponsored by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur - is based on the educational philosophy of their foundress, St. Julie Billiart.  The Academy offers co-educational programming from pre-K through 8th grade in the Lower School, and a college-preparatory Upper School for young women.

Our mission focuses on educating the whole person for life through a curriculum rooted in spiritual formation and academic excellence.  We nurture a belief in the goodness of God and the dignity of each person.  We are committed to community-building, diversity, global justice and service to those in need.
