Thank you for taking the time to visit Notre Dame Academy’s web site.  If you’ve made it to this page, you are either searching for an excellent education for your child or have heard that Notre Dame is a wonderful school and our students, faculty and staff are truly a family. 

NDA is a regional school, which means that although we are the last remaining Catholic Elementary School in South Buffalo, we welcome students from all over Buffalo and Western New York.  This creates a diversity in our school that we can be proud of!

Our caring teachers educate with the whole child in mind; academically, socially, and spiritually.  We strive to help our students do their personal best in all situations, and lifelong friendships are built.  All that we do is deeply rooted in our Catholic faith and values.  Students also enjoy extra-curricular activities including clubs and a variety of sports teams available for all age levels.

An exciting addition to our 2017-2018 school year will be our implementation of the STREAM program.  This program will offer a variety of hands on, inquiry based learning activities that add an additional dimension to our science and math programs and incorporate engineering concepts to excite and challenge the young minds of our students.

We encourage you to call with any additional questions or visit us any time.

God’s Blessings,

Mrs. Tristan D’Angelo
