At Notre Dame, we like to say the pillars of our education are Character, Faith, and Intellect. But these aren’t just words. We stress these three pillars every day, in all we do. Our students are required to complete service hours in the community each year. They practice 26 Acts of Kindness, a response to the tragedy at Sandy Hook. Some spend a week building homes in rural Appalachia. Some spend a weekend in Camden, NJ. And they do it all while balancing a rigorous academic load led by teachers who encourage debate and discussion and seek out hands-on ways to make learning relevant. At Notre Dame, students are encouraged to develop their natural talents, explore new ones, and become the best they can be both intellectually and spiritually.

"Notre Dame has brought me unforgettable experiences and friendships that will last a lifetime. As a member of the cheerleading team and the drama club, I have a strong connection to this community, where I always feel welcomed and included. Notre Dame has challenged me in the best way possible, and has helped me grow as both a student and a person. I know that my time at ND will follow me even after I have graduated!" -Student, Franke Martin '25
