Alliance For Independent Catholic Schools

The Alliance for Independent Catholic Schools is a partnership between Notre Dame Academy, Saint John's High School and Venerini Academy. While our three schools have benefited from informal relationships for years, this official partnership will allow for expanded collaboration and will provide families in Central Massachusetts with a high-quality, independent Catholic school option for boys and girls from Pre-K through twelfth grade. Our students and families are essential to what we do, and a critical part of why we’ve decided to create this Alliance, which will foster new academic, extracurricular and athletic opportunities. The administration and our Board of Trustees is thrilled to be able to share this news with you first.

It is important to note that Notre Dame Academy and the other Alliance schools will remain autonomous and dedicated to our individual missions, students and families, and sponsoring congregations while also participating in the Alliance. With the landscape of Catholic education changing across the world, this partnership allows us to think creatively about meeting NDA student and family needs while also extending our resources and realizing our commitment to more families.
