Why Choose ND?


“The promise of a Notre Dame education?  Its solid academics taught in a family atmosphere. We’re all about community here—both the community inside the school and the world outside of it."   ~ Gaetano Marra, Director of Admission

At Notre Dame, we like to say the pillars of our education are Character, Faith, and Intellect. But these aren’t just words. We stress these three pillars every day, in all we do. Our students are required to complete service hours in the community each year. They practice 26 Acts of Kindness, a response to the tragedy at Sandy Hook. Some spend a week building homes in rural Appalachia.  Some spend a weekend in Camden, NJ. And they do it all while balancing a rigorous academic load led by teachers who encourage debate and discussion and seek out hands-on ways to make learning relevant. At Notre Dame, students are encouraged to develop their natural talents, explore new ones, and become the best they can be both intellectually and spiritually.

But don’t take our word for it—come and experience the excitement of ND for yourself. Sign up here to receive more information. Or, contact us to arrange a virtual one to one meeting with our Director of Admissions and see below to join our Virtual Open House.  We are eager to meet you virtually until we can welcome you to campus!
