Meet Our President & Principal

Mr. Kenneth E. Jennings, President and Mrs. Joanna Barlow, Principal


Dear Prospective Families,

Welcome to Notre Dame High School, Home of the Irish. We are very happy you have chosen to visit our website and learn more about our catholic college preparatory high school.

The mission of Notre Dame High School is to serve as a dynamic, diverse community dedicated to educating young women and men to realize their full potential. Students, who often arrive in their freshman year, with many apprehensions about the years that lie ahead in high school, emerge as graduates prepared by the dedicated faculty, staff and coaches, for the rigor of college and university.

As you will see, throughout the website and when you visit our beautiful 100-acre campus, Notre Dame asks each student the following question, “Where will Notre Dame lead you?”  Leadership in the classroom, performing arts, athletics and extracurricular activities are fundamental to the Notre Dame experience. Students learn skills to enable them to be future leaders

Founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1957, Notre Dame has been committed to educating students with a rigorous college preparatory curriculum that provides students with acceptances to the best colleges and universities. Notre Dame is more than a school; it is a community built upon the Mercy Core Values of integrity, justice, service, compassion, and respect, brought to us by the Sisters. We educate the mind, body and spirit with a strong emphasis on the student’s moral and spiritual formation rooted in our Catholic faith. It helps shape the ethical decisions that they will confront as leaders.

Finally, Notre Dame continues to build on an outstanding legacy of alumni who will always be part of the Notre Dame family. As leaders in their professional fields, they often come back to share their wisdom with our current students.

Explore the website which is an extension of our physical campus. But, please make sure you come and visit to see our beautiful state-of-the-art auditorium, home to one of the best performing arts programs of any high school in the nation. Come and see our beautiful athletic facilities, where our student-athletes perform at the highest level of competition. Visit our classrooms and see the extraordinary teaching and collaborative learning happening every day.

This is Notre Dame! Go Irish!

Mr. Kenneth E. Jennings, President and Mrs. Joanna Barlow, Principal
