I was fortunate to attend Grandparent Day with my freshman grandson. I would like to compliment all who coordinated the Mass. I was VERY impressed with the organization and the boys. My grandson is very happy with his choice and I wanted to thank you for the wonderful experience belatedly. In retrospect, I realized that this was the first event at a Catholic school where no one asked for $$. Thank you!!

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!
