About Notre Dame de Sion
Notre Dame de Sion in Kansas City is an independent, Catholic school affiliated with the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph as well as the Congregation of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Sion. The school is owned by a lay corporation and governed by a board of trustees. The campuses include a college preparatory high school for girls and a co-educational elementary and middle school for students pre-kindergarten through grade eight. The Catholic value of respect for the worth and dignity of each individual permeates the atmosphere and culture of the school and is reflected in the loving, nurturing relationships that form among the faculty, staff, volunteers, parents, students, and visiting Sisters of Notre Dame de Sion. Generations of Kansas Citians can attest to the importance of what Sion continues to provide: a unique learning environment that reflects the love God has for each person in his/her individuality and for each culture in its distinctiveness. For over a century, Notre Dame de Sion has continued to encourage students and their families to believe they can and DO make a difference in the world by “Educating Minds. Expanding Hearts. Empowering Lives.”
