Notre Dame College Prep is a wonderful school. The teachers go above and beyond for my son. They have so many Activities and Sports and put a strong emphasis on their Fine Arts program. It is truly a college prep school as my oldest son received college admission at all of his top choices and earned much needed college scholarship money. Notre Dame is truly a family! I would recommend ND to any family!
