A Letter From The President

Welcome to the NDA website, on which you will find a wealth of information regarding our Catholic, Norbertine, and Green Bay Diocesan college-preparatory academy that serves secondary-level students from the Greater Green Bay area and beyond.

Whether you are a prospective student or parent, a current member of our community, or alumnus/alumna, benefactor, or friend, we trust that our new website and the links to affiliated sites will serve as a vital resource in providing you with accurate and timely information about NDA.

Every effort has been made to organize the site in a logical way with tabs covering areas of prime interest as well as constituency headings such as students, parents, faculty & staff, and alumni.

Prideful Tradition
Our distinctive 27 year history embraces the 120-year foundation of St. Joseph Academy, St. Norbert High School, Central Catholic High School, Abbot Pennings High School, and Our Lady of Premontre High School.

As a Norbertine community we are focused on developing the whole person. Service and character development, a sense of one’s own contributions to the common good, and an expectation of behavior and choices that positively reflect how God calls us to be are all part of the Notre Dame Academy difference.

Academic Distinction
We believe in challenging every student’s critical thinking and problem-solving ability. We offer a globally focused education with a leading international baccalaureate program. Our curriculum is college preparatory to ensure all students are prepared for a lifetime of learning and contribution to the common good.

Faithfully Chosen
All who attend Notre Dame Academy chose this distinctive decision – many travel great distances to benefit from the unique faith-based educational experience offered in a premier academic environment.

A Community for All
Our unique community is a blend of individuals from varied geographic locations, ethnic backgrounds and economic conditions. Our student population self-identifies as 84% Catholic and 16% of various traditions. Our school is available and accessible to all due to its tuition assistance program and welcoming tradition.

Purposeful Opportunity
Academics. Art. Athletics. Activities. At Notre Dame Academy, we are intentional in creating a distinctive combination of choices for all students to find what fits their interests so they participate in and outside of the classroom so as to foster their growth, development, teamwork and sense of responsibility.

You have visited us now in our virtual setting with a keystroke. We hope your visit will encourage you to come to our campus. We are eager to welcome you and introduce you to our community of energetic students and accomplished faculty and staff. Notre Dame Academy is a special place because of the people here who inspire us every day. Allow us to share the Notre Dame Academy experience with you.

In Christ and Notre Dame,

Kevin Shaw
