About Us

At Notre Dame Academy, we look at educating the whole child, weaving together a unique experience for every student. Working in partnership with parents, and now the Lake Area Discovery Center, the Notre Dame Academy faculty strives to build an educational experience rooted in spiritual values and driven by academic excellence. We are proud to say our approach has seen great success. The outcome is engaged, motivated and happy students. Students who want to learn. Students who want to soar.

Executive Director Janet Miller will be guiding and mentoring the teaching team. Janet’s leadership will ensure that the Notre Dame location continues to meet LADC’s high level of quality.
