Welcome

Dear Families,   

Academic excellence. Engaging extracurriculars. Enriching service programs. Treasured traditions. Notre Dame Preparatory School provides a transformative education.   In 2012-2013, NDP was the only private middle/high school in the state of Maryland recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School. With enriching programs like STEAM, Humanities and award-winning performing and visual arts, and competitive, championship athletic teams, students excel in all areas of their interests. I truly believe that there is something for everyone at NDP!    

There is something for everyone at NDP!

Technology anchors the rich and diverse curriculum in both the Middle and Upper Levels. In the Middle Level, the use of SmartBoards, laptops and even electronic microscopes in science labs add an important dimension to 21st century learning. Notre Dame is a wireless campus, and all Upper Level students carry a laptop, equipped with everything they need to succeed in NDP’s classrooms. Additionally, teachers’ use of Blackboard and the library’s accessibility to more than 300 electronic databases makes learning interactive and fun for our students.   

Though technology is an integral part of NDP’s whole-school curriculum, there is still a strong, personal bond between teacher and student through traditional instruction and interaction. One teacher told me, “We really love what we do, and it rolls off on to the girls.”  

Our website is a wonderful sneak-peek into all that NDP offers its students. Notre Dame’s commitment to educating the whole girl can be found in the various sections of this site. I encourage you to visit it regularly to see all that NDP can offer your daughter.  

Happy reading!
