Notre Dame Preparatory School was named as the Baltimore Child’s Readers’ Choice Award Winner for Best Girls Independent School. Doubly important, NDP was the only Catholic school listed among the award winners! This recognition is especially meaningful as it comes from members of the greater Baltimore community who know what a wonderful school NDP is and the impact an NDP education has on young girls. Thank you to all who voted for NDP!

Celebrating diversity. Working for inclusion. Focusing on equity. Acting with justice.
These four directives figured prominently for the Notre Dame Prep community this spring, as students in grades six through 12 participated in the Diversity-Equity-Inclusion (DEI) Lenten Challenge sponsored by Diversity Equity Inclusion Allies (DEIA) affinity group. Inspired by the 21-Day Ignatian Racial Equity Challenge in which some NDP teachers and students participated during Lent 2021, this year’s challenge, thanks, to student advocacy and interest expanded to invite all students to pray, reflect, learn, discuss, and act focusing on DEI.
When you play with fire, the adage goes, you get burned. Yet for the six Notre Dame Prep students who competed in the University of Maryland’s Fire Protection Engineering (FPE) Design Challenge, playing with fire was a learning experience.
This Valentine’s Day took on a special meaning for the Class of 2022. The traditional day of love and affection, boxed candy, and red roses fell exactly 100 days before Notre Dame Prep seniors will receive their red roses on graduation day.
State-of-the-art lighting is coming to Notre Dame Preparatory School’s Yeardley Reynolds Love Field during the summer of 2022. The improvement, which will allow for enhanced playing experiences and for more extended use of the field, is the first phase of a multi-year Master Plan designed to ensure NDP provides an unparalleled experience for our students and for generations of students to come.
Every year since she was six years old, BiancaRose Nnabue ‘26 has traveled to Nigeria, not as a tourist, but as a missionary to help provide free medical and humanitarian services to men, women, and children in rural communities in Imo State, Nigeria. Now 13 and an eighth-grader at NDP, BiancaRose is part of a service legacy that maternal grandparents, Drs. Rose and Sebastian Mezu, started 40 years ago, and since 2012 has been conducted through the family’s charitable organization, Mezu International Foundation (MIF).
“This [work] will always be part of my life,” explains BiancaRose, who aspires to be a doctor, like the many members of her immediate and extended family. “It is hard for people living in rural areas to get medications and medical attention. It means a lot to give back to a community that helped raise my family.”
This year’s Catholic Schools Week offered the entire Notre Dame Preparatory School the opportunity to reflect on the blessings of Catholic education and especially the NDP community. Students, faculty, and staff were asked to share insights about being part of a Catholic school community by answering questions like, “How have the values you have experienced at a Catholic School made an impact on how you live your life?,” “What does teaching in a Catholic School mean to you?,” and “What do you like most about attending a Catholic School?” Some teachers and staff also shared memories of their own Catholic School education. From spiritual to nostalgic to uplifting, the reflections shared all reinforced a message of gratitude, reminding us all of the joy of living “With Grateful Hearts.” To see more of these responses, click on the slideshow images.
