Employer Description
Notre Dame Academy (NDA) in Worcester, MA, is an independent, all-girls Catholic school for students in grades 7-12 sponsored by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. From its founding in 1951, NDA has been faithful to its all-girls, college preparatory mission, and Catholic identity. This mission and identity of the school remain vibrant, relevant, and highly valued by Catholic and non-Catholic families alike. The school is seeking a new principal who will serve as the educational and instructional leader of the school. The principal is responsible for managing the policies, regulations, and procedures that ensure a safe learning environment and overseeing all daily operations of the NDA academic program, health, guidance, and wellness services, and the congruence between the school’s mission and its instruction and activities. This is an outstanding opportunity for a dynamic and collaborative leader looking to engage with a community that is passionate about the mission and aspirations of its school. NDA is perfectly positioned for growth and renewal. NDA’s all-girls Catholic mission is powerful and becoming increasingly influential in Central Massachusetts as a significant choice for families of all faith traditions. The academic bar is high, and alum success shows the quality and rigor of its pedagogy and student outcomes. Mission Statement Notre Dame Academy is a dynamic, independent, Catholic school for girls in grades 7-12 sponsored by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. Welcoming girls of all faiths, the Academy provides transformational experiences that “teach them what they need to know for life.” Our graduates are confident women who are lifelong learners, spiritual seekers, and compassionate global citizens.  Developing a culture of evidenced-based teaching and building on the solid foundation of the past seven decades, this work reaffirms the NDA values and commitments that inspired St. Julie Billiart and were strengthened by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, who began their remarkable Catholic educational ministry in 1804. In its 71st year, Notre Dame Academy confidently looks forward, emboldened with a renewed mission and confident vision that will continue to lead the way.
