Why Notre Dame?

Cynthia Turek Buxton ’84, Parent of Ashley Buxton ’10

“NDHS has been a part of our family for three generations. The striving for high standards in academics and athletics, combined in a religious high school setting, has truly set the stage for making NDHS a family tradition.”
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 nationally recognized Christian Service-learning program.

The results speak for themselves.

And, after school each day, the New Jersey campus is alive with co-curricular activities.

Clubs and academic teams are meeting with faculty advisors, sports teams are competing and performers are on stage or in the band room practicing.

Notre Dame students are exploring opportunities, building friendships, deepening faith and discovering their God-given talents in a safe and nurturing environment.

At less than one-third the cost of local private schools, Notre Dame High School in Lawrenceville, NJ, offers value in the education of our students.

Notre Dame students are athletes who act, mathematicians who debate, human rights advocates who paint. There are no classifications, no limits to the potential for learning more about their faith, their world, themselves.
