Our educational program is focused on cultivating moral values and inquisitive minds in students starting from nursery (starting with toddlers of 24 months) and reaching all the way through senior year of High School (secundary education). To this end, we offer a Catholic based, bilingual, and multicultural program with a rigor to prepare our students for the global and competitive world of today.
Our school was founded in 1991, with the objective of expanding the educational resources in Nicaragua by providing a new alternative for high quality education that supports global awareness and preparedness. Currently, our student population is represented by more than 20 different cultures from around the world.
The year 1994 marked a large step in our schools’ history with the initiation of the process of joining the International Baccalaureate (IB) Organization, and awarded our acreditation in 1995. A globally recognized and respected program, IB holds its headquarters in Switzerland and is affiliated with schools in over 75 countries. Today, Notre Dame is proudly listed as a “World School” and offers the possibility of granting an International Bachelor Diploma.
