Service

The 2018 graduating class of Notre Dame Academy performed over 21,000 hours of service!

At Notre Dame Academy, as our mission states, we provide a holistic education permeated in gospel values, including the service of others .  As well as the Sisters of Notre Dame, all students grades 7-12 are strongly encourage to help those in need locally, nationally, and globally. Any questions regarding service should be directed to Co-Director of Campus Ministry, Faye Smith at fsmith@nda.org.

  • Students must serve other humans who are less fortunate (emotionally, physically, economically) than they are. Service to animals, while commendable, does not count.
  • Service cannot involve family members.
  • Students are encouraged to go outside their comfort zone while completing service (home parish, elementary school, etc. are not suggested).
  • Service to women and children, following the mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame, is highly encouraged.
  • Service can be completed during the summer as well as the school year.

All NDA students from grades 9-12 have a service requirement for graduation. All service hours are entered into an online program and are reflected on each student’s transcripts following graduation.

“We learned many things from the Sisters along the way but we also learned many things from the kids like how to appreciate the simple things in life. I’ll never forget the people we met. They were poor and disadvantaged but they welcomed us with open arms. They made us stretch our hearts to God to do God’s work without hesitation.” —-Mercy T. ’19

7th - 8th grade service requirements

National and international service projects

As a community, Notre Dame Academy is involved in several large scale special service projects. Each December young women serve in Appalachia bringing Christmas gifts to the families of Harlan, Kentucky. Notre Dame Academy students and their families donate gifts for almost 600 adults and children. They set up a toy store at the parish for families to choose Christmas gifts for their children and also host a family party where each adult and child receives a gift. Due to an overwhelming interest by students to participate on the Appalachia trip, NDA created a second Christmas service experience, called Appalachia “At Home.” NDA students recognized that there were people in need in our own city, so we also collect gifts and host a Christmas Party at Queen of Apostles Elementary School in downtown Toledo!

In addition to the Appalachia gift collection, Notre Dame Academy students have a collection of some type one time each month. NDA students pay attention to the needs of our city, country and world and make informed choices of what to collect and who to help.

NDA students often spend time during their summer break doing service. Many students work each summer alongside the Sisters of Notre Dame with migrant workers in rural northwestern Ohio. Students also serve those in need in Toledo through the Youth Elect Service (YES) Project. The summer months also provide opportunities for international service trips. Notre Dame Academy students have participated in trips to Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic to help serve the community there, experiencing different cultures and people in the process.
