Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Academy of Notre Dame! Our beautiful campus is situated along the Merrimack River on 200 acres of land that offers pristine fields, ponds, and forests in which to explore, learn and play. The natural environment provides seclusion and security unique to our location while also being in close proximity to local emergency services.
Here at the Academy our primary commitment is to ensure that our students receive a strong academic foundation rooted in spiritual formation to prepare them to excel as global citizens in a changing world. As members of our vibrant community, students are encouraged to recognize their individual gifts and to utilize their talents to improve the quality of their lives and the lives of others.
We welcome you to explore our website and get a glimpse of all that the Academy has to offer and then make plans to visit our campus and see first hand what makes the Academy the premiere learning institution in the region.
Take a closer look with a personal tour, classroom visit, or shadow day which provides prospective students and their families an opportunity to experience the Academy community and what it would be like to attend. We also encourage you to attend one of our Open Houses where you will have the chance to meet with our administration, faculty and staff and, most importantly, our exceptional students who truly exemplify the spirit of the Academy.
You may submit an online Admissions Inquiry Form, or contact us directly to answer any of your questions. Whether you start in our Lower School's Early Years program (2 years, 9 months to 6 years old), our Lower School program for grades 1 through 5, our Middle School program for grades 6 through 8, or our all-girls, college-preparatory Upper School program for grades 9 through 12, we look forward to helping you through your academic journey at the Academy of Notre Dame.
