Wendy Paul, Parent of '23 NDP student 

Wendy is an active and kindhearted mother here at Notre Dame Prep. She is the president of NDP's Mothers' Guild and is serving as the Enrollment Domain Chair for NDP's Strategic Planning. She continues to give her time graciously and is a model of the Catholic faith. 


“Our experience is that NDP has teachers that provide an amazing classroom experience and check in on your kid when they miss class because they are sick - just to make sure they are okay. There are parents who are also looking out for your kid and know you are looking out for theirs. Students have so many opportunities to explore who they are and who they want to be in the future, all while being well-prepared for college and life beyond NDP. We know that NDP strives to provide the safest and best learning environment for the kids and they are always working to improve. We have truly appreciated our time here. I love that I can attend mass and rosary on campus and I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Mothers' Guild. It's meant so much to be able to volunteer, to share advice and stories, and to make lifelong friends. I'm so grateful for NDP."

"I feel that as a transfer student at NDP, I was able to fit right into the community whether that be academically or with extracurriculars. I am heavily involved in the arts at NDP, and I felt such a warm welcome from all my teachers and classmates. From rehearsals to performance, this community of teachers and students has helped me to accomplish my goals!"

Carlo Lanza, Class of '22

Carlo is soon beginning his first year at Boston University where he will be participating in the BS/MD program. Carlo is extremely committed when it comes to learning and helping others. During his time at NDP, Carlo was heavily involved in NDP Live where he practiced his public speaking and broadcasting skills as an anchor for our school announcements. Carlo was also working behind the scenes at an internship shadowing a doctor where he further grew his passion for medicine. 


"What Notre Dame has meant to me over the last two years is hard to put into words. I came to NDP as a transfer student in the middle of COVID, which was an adjustment to say the least. NDP welcomed me with open arms and quickly gave me the tools I needed to be successful. With the help of the phenomenal faculty, on and off campus opportunities, and my friends, I can confidently say that my time spent at NDP has not only helped me become a better person, but has prepared me for college and beyond."
