Notre Dame Academy Elementary School Educating Today's Youth to be Tomorrow's Leaders

Service Program

In accordance with our mission, philosophy, and SLEs, we strive to nurture socially responsible citizens ­ persons of moral integrity who make a positive difference in today’s world. Church doctrine states that “(A) person is formed for b​eing­with​and f​or­others,​ which is realized in love” (Educating Together in Catholic Schools). NDAE forms such persons by providing students with many opportunities to serve others. Making sandwiches for a local food pantry, collecting Halloween costumes for a women’s and children’s shelter or donating toiletry items for a homeless shelter, NDAE students and their families serve the local community. Additionally, each class sponsors a service organization. Throughout the year students learn about their class’s organization and raise money for their cause through Buck­-a-­Stuff donations. In addition to these outreach projects, there is a concerted effort to serve each other on campus, as each student, teacher, administrator, and parent strives to Lift Each Other Up through words and actions, SLE awards, character education, and anti­bullying campaigns. At NDAE we love, serve, and grow together as a family.
