The Congregation of the Sisters of Notre Dame came into being in Coesfeld, Germany in 1850. Hilligonde Wolbring became Sister Maria Aloysia and Elisabeth Kuhling, Sister Maria Ignatia. In the spirit of St. Julie Billiart, their "spiritual mother," and the two co-foundresses, the Sisters of Notre Dame continue to witness God's goodness and provident care throughout the world today. The mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame is to bring hope within a diverse society, particularly through education in faith and the empowerment of women.
The Sisters of Notre Dame and the schools they sponsor claim an educational heritage of 160 years. Today, Notre Dame educational programs in 17 countries are founded on four SND educational principles:
* The centrality of a good and provident God
* The human dignity of each person as an image of God
* The Notre Dame educator as Gospel witness
* An integrated education for transformation.
La Reina High School experiences the internationality of the Sisters of Notre Dame through mission awareness programs and through visits from students, faculty and speakers from the Notre Dame global community. Additional information about the Sisters of Notre Dame is available on the congregation's international website, www.snd1.org, and on the website of the California province, www.sndca.org.
