Notre Dame Academy - Celebrating History

 A collaboration between Lisa Powell, Dayton Daily News staff writer, and Kary Ellen Berger, Chaminade Julienne communications coordinator, recently helped bring Notre Dame Academy for Young Women to the forefront. Notre Dame Academy, established in Dayton 130 years ago, was spotlighted in the publication’s History Extra feature. Photographs dating back more than a century helped tell the story of the institution founded by five Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur in 1886. From the vintage Notre Dame Academy school bus to dedicated students studying chemistry, the History Extra piece offered a snapshot into the institution that helped lay the groundwork for the Chaminade Julienne of today. While much has changed since Notre Dame Academy first opened its doors, one thing has not – a commitment to academic excellence and spiritual enrichment.
