Cultural Awareness

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.

― Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad/Roughing It

Notre Dame Academy’s Interact Club is committed to promoting cultural awareness through international exchanges and communication.  We have made strides to create connections with Interact Clubs in Brazil, the Dominican Republic, the UK and Peru.  We also are looking to cultivate ties with the Sisters of Notre Dame in Brazil.  We have begun to initiate studies of the Italian and Portuguese languages.
