Founded in 1912, we are proud to be celebrating more than a century of providing one of the most sought-after educational experiences for students and families across the Kansas City Metro area. At the heart of a Sion, education is a lasting commitment to academic excellence, spiritual development through our Catholic identity and ultimately the gift of seeking life-long opportunities for servant leadership and global citizenship. Our outstanding faculty and state-of-the-art curriculum offer a unique and warm welcome to students of all backgrounds. We encourage our students to continue growing in their understanding and respect of cultural and religious diversity throughout their time at Sion. Sion schools around the world continue to bring this extraordinary educational vision to reality as we maintain our rich history and traditions as a safe space for learning, and give each student the opportunity to become the best version of themselves.
The founder of the Congregation of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Sion, Fr. Theodore Ratisbonne, believed that “somewhere in the world, there must be a school, some sort of sanctuary where the mysteries of the present and the future could be revealed.” From our premier, college-preparatory education and inclusive community of our All-Girls High School, to our personalized, Pre-K-8th co-educational academic programs at our historic grade school for boys and girls, Notre Dame de Sion Schools of Kansas City continue to provide our students with a 21st century educational experience within the nurturing and caring “sanctuary” of Sion. Our alumni not only go on to thrive in an ever-changing world but take with them the ability to bring the sanctuary of Sion to those who need it most.
I invite you to join us on campus for a visit soon and to experience the Sion difference.
