Middle Level (Grade 6-8) Admissions

Here is all you need to know regarding the Admissions process at Notre Dame Prep. This will keep you up-to-date on all the important dates during the fall and winter months. Just print and highlight each bullet point as you complete the various steps. We hope you can see your daughter and family at NDP.   


Transcript Release Form 

If your daughter attends a public or independent middle school, you will need to print, sign and turn in a transcript release form to her school. Please turn it in to her middle school no later than November 21, 2016. This allows the school to send NDP her full academic transcript. The transcript release form can be accessed here:  Transcript Release Form

(Note: This does not apply to our Catholic school applicants.)
