Mission & Values
Founded in 1857 by the Society of the Daughters of the Heart of Mary (DHM), Nardin Academy is a private, independent, Catholic academy with three unique schools: a co-ed Montessori, a co-ed elementary, and a college preparatory school for young women.
Across the academy, we strive to fulfill both our mission and the three pillars of our strategic plan: maximize student potential, engage students with the world, and enrich Nardin community life.
Inspiring hearts and minds to do amazing things for the world through faith, character, academic excellence, and service.
As the Daughters of the Heart of Mary live in the midst of the world in order to respond to the needs of God's people, Nardin students, who represent 17 faiths across our community, are called upon to build a world in which the primary values are equality and justice and to work for an earth that is protected and restored.
