Notre Dame Academy celebrates dedication of ‘Excellence Without Boundaries’ renovations

Notre Dame Academy is hosting a Dedication Celebration to commemorate the completion of its Excellence Without Boundaries Capital Campaign renovations Sunday at noon.

Most Reverend Roger J. Foys, D.D. will bless the new spaces on NDA’s campus at the facilities dedication and the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce will be in attendance for a ceremonial ribbon cutting.

Notre Dame Academy cordially invites the community of NDA, members of the Diocese of Covington and the Greater Cincinnati community at large to attend the Dedication Celebration. This is a momentous occasion for the students, faculty, and administration of NDA. Through its Excellence Without Boundaries Capital Campaign, Notre Dame Academy has transformed its 20th-century building into a 21st-century optimum educational environment for the NDA community to learn and thrive.

For 112 years, Notre Dame Academy has been an educational leader in innovation and best practice in the competitive environment of education. As the only all-female college preparatory school in Northern Kentucky and Diocese of Covington, Notre Dame Academy is proud of its Catholic identity and reputation as one of the area’s leading educational institutions.

Notre Dame Academy has led the way in educational technology, integrating core competencies that enable students to thrive in the 21st century. At NDA, educators believe that fundamental skills such as collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking are required for success in today’s global community. Thanks to an innovative and forward-thinking approach to education and the incorporation of cutting-edge technology into the classroom, 21st Century Learning is alive and well at Notre Dame Academy.

Notre Dame Academy is a community of lifelong learners rooted in the charism of the Sisters of Notre Dame (SND) and has a strong commitment to academic excellence. Dedicated to providing a holistic education, NDA develops the God-given gifts of its students and prepares them for the ongoing pursuit of knowledge.

Sound strategic objectives have strengthened NDA’s vision of creating a premier Catholic high school, providing excellent academic and co-curricular programs that prepare graduates to be outstanding female leaders serving the world. These objectives have increased Notre Dame Academy’s ability to provide students with an exemplary education that empowers them to make a difference in the world.

In light of NDA’s tradition of holistic education, there were four principal areas of focus in the Excellence Without Boundaries Capital Campaign:

• Chapel Renovation
• 21st Century Collaborative Learning Center
• Food Court and Student Commons
• Elevator and ADA Compliance

To date, the 21st Century Collaborative Learning Center and the Food Court and Student Commons areas have been completed and will be blessed at the facilities dedication on October 28. NDA’s new Mary, Mother of the World Chapel is scheduled to be completed in the spring and a special Chapel Blessing Ceremony will be held in March of 2019.
