School Notes

  • Acceptance to Notre Dame Catholic School in 1st-8th grade includes an interview with the principal, a review of the child's report cards from the school where the child was previously enrolled,  and an entrance exam to determine if the child has a reasonable chance of being successful. We also encourage that the child spend a day at our school to shadow. Please come and take a look at what an investment a Catholic education will make in your child's future.
