Leadership Society

The Leadership Society was established in 2001 to honor and celebrate the school’s most generous donors.  Leadership Council members are essential to the financial health and continued success of the Academy of Notre Dame.  The Fund for Notre Dame provides 8% of the School’s operating budget supporting the entire student experience through areas such as academic programs, faculty salaries and professional development, financial aid, and campus maintenance.

We are infinitely grateful for the leadership and passion of our Leadership Society members.  Their philanthropy continues to ensure the school’s tradition of academic excellence while inspiring others to support the school’s mission in providing students the skills that will be essential for life.
