Notre Dame Academy Elementary

A nonprofit organization

Notre Dame Academy (NDA) is the first regional Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Louisville. NDA was established in 2004 through the merger of St. Helen, St. Denis, and St. Lawrence Schools located in the southwestern part of Louisville, Kentucky. NDA’s mission is to provide students in preschool through eighth grade the opportunity for academic excellence in a Christ-centered environment while supporting diverse academic needs, talents, and aptitudes. The vision of the NDA community is to ensure each graduating student has achieved the highest individual level of academic excellence while developing a strong positive identity. Through service leadership, our students help to strengthen our ties to our community and our world.

During these uncertain times, NDA is striving to make quality Catholic education affordable to all families. However, the financial burden of post-Covid instruction continues to severely impact our ability to make vital building repairs. As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, our goal is to replace the airconditioning units in our Primary classrooms. This is where your generosity comes in. With your help, we can achieve our goals and continue our mission for Excellence in Catholic Education for years to come.
