A majority of the Center’s students walk from the surrounding neighborhoods and/or take public transportation.  Once construction is completed Notre Dame Education Center Inc. will own and operate this nearly 10,000 sq. ft. ground level facility.

 

“We are delighted to have this unique opportunity to work with All Saints LLC to redevelop our building,” said Mary Rose Durante, Esq., Executive Director and CEO of Notre Dame Education Center.  “The new building means that adults and young adults in the South Boston community will be able to receive our high quality education and support services for years to come.”  NDEC Board member Sr. Susan Thornell, SND, added, “Over the past 25 years, NDEC has furthered the exceptional educational standards of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.  To know that tradition will continue in a state-of-the-art building is a real blessing.”
