Dear Friends and Supporters,
For more than 28 years since its inception in South Boston, Notre Dame Education Center has worked to enrich the minds and lives of its students.
Our organization was founded by The Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur with the mission of providing quality education and support services in a diverse, caring community that empowers adult learners to realize their full potential. While the events of 2020 have been a unique test of our collective mettle and determination, we at NDEC are committed to embracing and serving our students and members of our community who have often been at the front lines of this crisis.
Through the dedication and enthusiasm of our staff, we have found innovative ways to maintain a human connection to our students, while our programs have continued to evolve to meet the needs of our diverse group of learners.
NDEC has been a powerful force for change since its establishment in 1992, educating over 10,000 students in its varied curriculums including, amongst others, an innovative High-School Diploma program, a High School Equivalency and Postsecondary Preparation program, our ESOL program and our Workforce Development Initiative that connects students to jobs and technology.
Our roots are firmly planted in South Boston and I am honored to be Executive Director as we move toward the realization of our dream of a permanent home there with the planned opening of our new facility at 200 Old Colony Avenue in 2021. This will allow NDEC to engage and empower even more students to pursue their academic goals and create a better life for themselves, while we work to enhance our programming and forge new partnerships.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
Christine M. Durante, Esq.
Executive Director and CEO
