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

This wonderful (and easy) program rewards our children for doing something they already enjoy - READ!

Students in Kindergarten thru Grade 5 will be receiving their Tracking Charts in class.  This program is optional and the rules are easy.  Students must complete a total of 7 hours of reading for enjoyment from January 1, 2018 - February 27, 2018. The seven hours of reading can be in the form of reading to oneself, reading to another person or being read to by others. Students may read books, magazines or newspapers. 

Parents can help record the book titles and the time on the Tracking Form and it MUST be signed by their parent.  Students must return the Tracking Form to their homeroom teachers by FEBRUARY 28, 2018.

The forms will be gathered, recorded and mailed to Darien Lake on Thursday, March 1, 2018.  Darien Lake will not accept late entries so please be sure that they are returned on time.

The reward?  Sharing some quality time with a good book and a free ticket to Darien Lake Theme Park and Water Park!
