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.
Sion’s early education program is rooted in the Montessori tradition, where students engage independently in a structured series of works designed to cultivate each one’s natural desire to learn.
Grade School students learn together in self-contained homerooms where they experience extensive curricular integration and collaboration. In addition to a strong foundation in literacy skills and number sense, students advance in 21st-century competencies through regular experiential learning activities in the STEAM classroom and Sion’s community garden. Enrichment classes include Art, Music, PE, Swimming, French, Spanish in 4th grade, and Library. Students explore spirituality and faith through Holy Ground classes.
