Since 1843, the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur have been active in schools in California, Washington, Oregon and Hawaii. The values that align with St. Julie’s mission are expressed in Notre Dame schools through the Hallmarks of a Notre Dame Learning Community.
There are currently five Notre Dame schools in California that are still formally associated with the Sisters as SND-Directed Schools, and many other Heritage Schools that the Sisters founded, taught or administered in and that continue to thrive. A complete list appears below.
During this 2017 National Catholic Schools Week we celebrate the Sisters,and the students, alumni, school administrators and staff, and friends that have made the schools into Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.
