The Notre Dame ACE Academies Model

The unique Catholic school support model employed by the Notre Dame ACE Academies university-school partnership emphasizes continuous improvement in the multiple dimensions of schooling, including Catholic school culture, advancement, and teaching and learning.

Catholic Identity

  • Catholic identity forms the bedrock of all efforts and operations in the school. Every other aspect of the school depends on its Catholic identity.

Advancement

  • The Notre Dame ACE Academies model emphasizes support from parental choice scholarships and benefits from the mobilization of the resources of ACE and partnering dioceses. 

Teaching and Learning

  • Effective use of best practices, supported by the strong and positive school culture and the knowledge and expertise of the Notre Dame team, ensures all students reach their greatest potential.

Through targeted efforts in each of these areas, Notre Dame ACE Academies partnerships address multiple dimensions of education, including curriculum, instruction, professional development, financial management, marketing, leadership, governance, and learning environment.  The Notre Dame ACE Academies model also emphasizes support from parental choice scholarships and benefits from the mobilization of the resources of ACE and partnering dioceses.
