Inspiration Starts Here

At Notre Dame, our students are challenged to think creatively, to ask hard questions and confidently express their opinions, and to strive for excellence in the classroom, on the stage, or the field.

Notre Dame is a caring all-girls’ community, guided by the faith tradition of the Catholic Church, the service of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, and our Honor Code.
