Welcome

Dear Families,   

T hank you for considering Notre Dame Prep for your daughter’s education. I hope you can see your daughter at NDP, where, I believe, we offer the trifecta: academic excellence, spiritual formation and emotional development. NDP provides a truly transformative education!  

NDP provides a truly transformative education!   

Notre Dame offers more than 150 classes and 20 AP classes, tremendous for a school our size. Our unique phasing system allows each student to work at a pace that challenges her, but allows her to excel. Specialized programs, like STEAM, Women in Science Internships, and Humanities, set NDP apart, providing even more enriching academic opportunities for our students. Whether you’re considering our Middle Level (grades 6-8) or looking at us for Upper Level (grades 9-12), we are committed to meeting the needs of all our girls.   

Student life teems with activities. In the Upper Level, NDP offers more than 40 clubs and extracurriculars, fields JV and varsity teams in all 14 IAAM sports, and is anchored by rich and meaningful traditions—like Gym Meet, school liturgies and life-changing retreats and service trips. In the Middle Level, our Advisory and Explore programs are hallmarks of a strong middle school. Additionally, our Middle Level students can also play sports, be part of the Scrabble Team, or find their voice on stage in our ML musical, among other activities. 

Technology anchors the rich and diverse curriculum in both the Middle and Upper Levels. In the Middle Level, the use of SmartBoards, laptops and electronic microscopes, as well as the Bring-Your-Own-Device Program, adds an important dimension to 21st-century learning. NDP is a wireless campus, and all Upper Level students carry a touch-screen laptop, equipped with everything they need to succeed in NDP’s classrooms. 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, personable 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.”

Notre Dame’s commitment to educating the whole girl can be found throughout our website.  Please explore it so you and your daughter may see all that Notre Dame Prep offers!

Happy Reading!
