The Flexible Schedule Structure

The Academy of Notre Dame is proud of the flexible schedule concept instituted in grades 3 through 8.

To our knowledge, the flexible schedule is only available at the Academy of Notre Dame. All major subject areas at the Academy are linked together, so the classes are occurring at each grade level at the same time.

For example, when a third grade math class is in session, there is also a math class being taught in the fourth grade and fifth grade.  Therefore, a third grade student is permitted to move through the schedule and take a fourth grade math class. All core subjects are interlocked in this way.

The flexible schedule provides maximum versatility for each student. Students who are academically and socially ready may participate in classes at the next grade rather than the traditional approach of offering them more challenging grade level work.
