Notre Dame Academy, located in Carmel Valley, is a preeminent Catholic school serving students from preschool through eighth grade. At NDA, we combine rigorous and advanced learning with an immersive Catholic community to ensure each child grows into his or her full potential. 21st century skills such as collaborative learning, growth mindset, and critical thinking are woven into all classes including the Arts, STEAM, Technology, and Physical Education. Students engage in daily French and Spanish instruction at all grade levels to encourage trilingual skills and set the tone for a global educational perspective. Cultural exchange experiences in France and Spain are available in middle school, which is a culminating experience for many students as they become Catholic-Christian witnesses, diligent and lifelong learners, virtuous individuals, and responsible citizens. We pledge to balance competitive academics with unparalleled Christian experiences for a fulfilling education for every student. Notre Dame Academy is an enclave of creativity and culture, rigor and reward, faith and family; committed to challenge and to inspire; to learn and to laugh; and to lay a lasting foundation for a promising tomorrow.
