Area private school to be featured on TV

DULUTH — On Tuesday, Notre Dame Academy students will recognize some familiar faces on their TVs — those of themselves and their classmates.

Notre Dame Academy was part of a group of schools chosen to be featured on the “The Profiles Series”

“Our status as the only private Catholic school that has the International Baccalaureate accreditation certainly was a drawing feature,” NDA President Debra Orr said. “I think our school was well represented. We were able to illustrate how we infuse technology into our curriculum and other vital features of our school, like our ‘Fit for Life’ program and service learning projects.”

• What: Notre Dame Academy featured on “The Profile Series”

The filming, which took place one day in September, showed students actively engaged in all aspects of their day. The video also incorporated interviews with parents, administration and Father Joel Konzen, the principal of Marist School and a member of NDA’s Board of Trustees.

“We have an excellent school, with outstanding family involvement, great teachers and fabulous students,” Orr said. “I’m glad we have the opportunity to share our blessings with others.”

The episode of “The Profiles Series” will air at 7 a.m. Tuesday on the Discovery Channel.
