Why Notre Dame?

Notre Dame Educates the Whole Student, Mind, Body and Spirit

A Notre Dame education addresses the whole child, with emphasis on preparation for college, integrated with the values of the Roman Catholic faith.

The challenging curriculum offers a variety of subjects designed to provide a rigorous academic experience for students who plan to pursue a college degree. Students may choose from more than 50 clubs and organizations, 55 athletic teams and a renowned performing arts program. All students give of their time in service to others as participants in our Christian Service-learning program.

Students are Fully Engaged
An emphasis on intellectual development and community is bolstered by great emotional support, both from fellow students and from the faculty and administration. The ultimate goal: to help students blossom into balanced, confident, and capable adults who are well equipped to take on the challenges ahead.

College and School Counselor Rose Stevenson says, “We try to create an environment that will allow children to find their self-confidence in going out into the world. Self-esteem is so important to develop in high school for students to be able to be engaged in the world.”
