Mission & Mercy Core Values

ND Mission

Notre Dame High School, a ministry of the Catholic Diocese of Trenton, is a dynamic, diverse Catholic community dedicated to educating young women and men to realize their full potential through a faith-filled environment, a challenging college-preparatory program, extensive co-curricular activities and a commitment to citizenship and service in the community.

Notre Dame is one of the preeminent Catholic schools in the United States.

Bishop David M. O’Connell, Diocese of Trenton

A Notre Dame education is built upon the Mercy Core Values:

Respect

We reverence the dignity of all persons and all life as gifts of God and strive to promote community in our world.

Integrity

We believe that fidelity to moral principles, honesty and sincerity are the basis of trustworthiness in all encounters.

Justice

We believe ordering of right relationships with all persons and all creation is fundamental to our advocacy for structures that protect the vulnerable.

Compassion

We embrace the joys and sorrows of others to whom and with whom we minister and are moved to action in solidarity with the human community.

Service

We joyfully extend our energy and resources on behalf of the poor, sick and uneducated working to relieve misery and address its causes where possible.
