Notre Dame Academy,a branch of an International Organisation, administered by Women Religious, is a Catholic Institution managed by the Patna Notre Dame Sisters Society. Therefore all decisions of the governing body find their source in Christian philosophy and theology. The aim of Notre Dame Education is to train young people for unselfish leadership so that the students we educated will be able to change the oppressive structures of society by standing for justice and human rights. They are to assist their fellow citizens in directing their lives to God in faith by helping, healing, reconciling and taking firm stand on moral principles of honesty, integrity, hard work and freedom. We believe that we are responsible for demonstrating and promoting the qualities of an educated person which include wisdom, competence, compassion, sense of well-being, and quest for peace and justice. Consequently, we send forth young men and women with profound capacity for self-giving and sensitivity to respond empathetically to the social realities of their times.
