At Notre Dame Academy we offer many extra-curricular opportunities for students to explore learning beyond the classroom curriculum. The exact number and types of activities offered each year will vary.
Some of the extra-curricular activities we’ve had include:
Chess Club: Chess Club is devoted to helping kids develop learning and thinking skills through the game of chess.
Legos/Robotics: Hands-on Lego building boots STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) in an entertaining and educational environment.
Mad Science: Students experience unique, hands-on science experiments that are as entertaining as they are educational.
Math League: Sixth through eighth grade students can join Math League and travel to other schools to compete in timed math competitions.
Model United Nations: This club meets twice a month to learn about the United Nations, its history, procedures, and results. Students are prepared to participate in the Minnesota YMCA Model United Nations, held annually in mid-March, in which students create a working replica of the United Nations.
Spelling and Geography Bees: In addition to a Geography Bee, this is the spelling bee that makes the national press each year! Fifth through eighth graders compete within the school, and winners represent the school in regional and perhaps, statewide competitions.
Student Newspaper: Weekly meetings produce a student-run newspaper created by 6-8 graders.
Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts: Open to all ages, both Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts are represented by our students, led by parent volunteers.
