  • Founded by the Sisters of Notre Dame in 1928, Notre Dame School continues to provide quality Catholic education to the families of the greater Chico area, primarily serving St. John the Baptist and Our Divine Savior parishes within the Diocese of Sacramento.
  • It is our mission to empower students with Gospel values, Catholic vision, and academic excellence, leading them to fulfill their unique vocation within the security of a faithful family community. Academic excellence, leavened by a commitment to the success of the individual child and integrated with the message of the Gospel, is the heritage of Notre Dame School.
