As a student at Notre Dame, I have loved every minute of my NDP experience. There truly is something for every student!From outstanding academic challenges to competitive athletic teams, I have enjoyed it all. The sisterly bonds are so powerful and I am making friends to last. Also, the unique phasing system lets each student thrive, learn, and be challenged at their own level and speed. In addition to this the facilities are top notch and enable a variety of learning techniques.
