School Notes

For 165 years Notre Dame High School in downtown San Jose has stood as the premier school for young women of the Silicon Valley.  Guided by the wisdom of Saint Julie Billiart, foundress of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, we have provided a relevant and exciting curriculum, teaching young women "what they need to know for life."  Whether for the 1850s or the fast-paced 21st century, our mission does not change: we ensure our students are armed with the skills and knowledge needed to navigate and excel in their rapidly evolving environment.  Prestigious universities and colleges across the nation recruit our graduates smart, sophisticated and savvy young women poised to positively impact their local and global communities.  

Our impressive results stem from an exceptional college preparatory program that: 
  • focuses on personalized support.  Each student is assigned both a personal counselor and faculty mentor to provide academic, social and spiritual advising throughout her four years of high school.  
  • emphasizes critical thinking and collaboration skills.  All courses include group work, project-based learning, and the use of technology as a tool.
  • offers real-world relevance through experiential learning.  From interdisciplinary field trips to internship and travel opportunities, students are guided in learning beyond the walls of the classroom.
