Welcome to the Academy of Notre Dame's Class of 2028 page! We are so happy you have chosen to learn more about NDA when considering your Upper School options. Student life at NDA is vibrant - clubs and activities, athletics, community service opportunities, and travel abroad options are part of the high school experience. Our students are truly the heart of the school and each individual plays an important role in the shared experience of being an NDA Lancer.

If you are interested in visiting NDA, individual tours are available by appointment. Please complete a tour form or contact the Admissions Office at 978-649-7611, ext. 351 or [email protected] to make your appointment. Tours are available during the active school day and are hosted by the Director of Admissions, Mrs. Charlotte Kelly and an NDAmbassador.


Students are encouraged to become a Lancer for the Day and shadow with one of our high school students. This is one of the BEST ways to see if NDA is right for YOU!
