Founded in 1912 by the Sisters of St. Ursula, Notre Dame is a private, Catholic, college-preparatory school for young women.

The school provides a challenging curriculum, which integrates classroom learning with educational and cultural opportunities in our urban setting. The school’s curriculum is rich in the sciences, arts and technology. 

For over 100 years, Notre Dame has had a reputation for high academic standards while providing a warm and family-like environment for its students.

Notre Dame has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the “outstanding high schools” in the country. Our educational program is directed toward the development of each student as a whole person. We seek to meet the needs of each student intellectually, socially and spiritually. 
"My four years at Notre Dame were filled with discovery, growth, and passion that follow me today. Notre Dame prepared me to pursue my interests in college and beyond along with providing me a community that believes I can achieve endless opportunities."
--Meyen Dolley '23
