Faith Life and Catholic Identity

For over a century in Kansas City, Notre Dame de Sion High School for Girls has been a Catholic, independent school inviting and inspiring young women to love learning, think creatively and critically, serve their neighbor, discover their unique gifts, deepen their faith, and regard individuality as one of life’s greatest gifts. Students, faculty and staff members of all faith traditions learn from one another. Through its association with the Congregation of Notre Dame de Sion, our schools are among 20 Sion schools internationally, all of which share the same dynamic culture:
 
    • Commitment to the Catholic Church
    • Exposing and educating its students to not just learn about the rich variety of faith traditions and cultures
      in the world but also to interact with people whose beliefs and practices are different from their own.
    • Building a world of Peace, Justice and Love

Valuing the worth and dignity of each person permeates the culture and atmosphere 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.


Mission Statement
The Notre Dame de Sion School of Kansas City is an independent Roman Catholic school providing the highest quality college preparatory education from preschool through grade 12. Sion continues the tradition of the founding sisters, the Congregation of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Sion, inviting students to encounter God in a Catholic atmosphere that respects all faith traditions. The school partners with families and the community to prepare students for socially responsible, values based leadership in a culturally and religiously diverse world.


Vision Statement
Kansas City families will choose Notre Dame de Sion to educate their children because of its academic excellence and biblical values. They will cherish the school as a nurturing community where Catholic values, integrity, and respect prevail. At Sion, students will be empowered to develop and encouraged to use their unique gifts as they become self-confident, faith-filled adults who will know their "blessing" and bring about the Kingdom of God.


Statement on Diversity
At Notre Dame de Sion Schools of Kansas City, we affirm our ongoing commitment to value diversity, a commitment which flows directly from the charism and welcoming tradition of the Congregation of Our Lady of Sion. Our goal is that the entire Sion community ­­– from our youngest students to our most seasoned alumnae and alumni; from our parents to our faculty and staff members – embrace the unique gifts of each individual and value the distinctiveness of each group of people. Born of diverse backgrounds and identities, we uphold first and foremost the dignity of each person. We are called to actively welcome and respect the individual differences of all. Cultivating this attitude is a lifelong process and is the essence of Notre Dame de Sion.
