Principal Search

Update from President Kenneth Jennings
January 29, 2024

As we enter Catholic Schools Week, I wish to update the ND community on the Permanent Principal Search.

After a careful selection process working with our search firm, Educational Directions, the Principal search interviews are scheduled for the next two weeks; we have six candidates that have been invited for the interview. It is my hope that we will announce the name of the Principal by the end of February.

Please keep the interview committee in your prayers, as we discern this important decision for the future of Notre Dame.

Founded in 1957 and located on 100 beautiful acres in Central New Jersey, Notre Dame prepares students for lives of fulfillment and service, rooted in Catholic values in the spirit of the Sisters of Mercy. This person will work with a highly talented and dedicated faculty, staff and administration to provide a powerfully, well-rounded experience for our 900 students.
