Why Notre Dame Preparatory?

Choir Instructor Deanna Hudson Invited to Honors Performance at Carnegie Hall

NDP choral instructor Deanna Hudson, has been invited to New York as an instructor for the 2020 Honors Performance Series. She will assist the students in the program (three of whom are from Notre Dame Prep). She will learn from master conductors, and in the process enhance her own professional development. 

Josh Babu, Class of ‘18

Josh is currently experiencing success both academically and musically at Princeton University. 

"My years at Notre Dame Prep were incredibly formative, and I am extremely proud of the education I received. However, I am most grateful for the personal and emotional development I underwent while at NDP. Whether it was through the Kairos retreats, my involvement with the music department, or the amazing relationships I formed while in high school, Notre Dame Prep was able to foster a culture that made me a far more conscientious and compassionate individual."

Sophie O'Shei, Class of '20

Sophie is senior this year and she is president of Mu Alpha Theta (Math Honor Society), founder and team captain of Quiz Bowl, spirituality coordinator for St. Patrick House and a member of the NDP track and field team. Recently Sophie was named a National Merit Semifinalist. She aims to expand our academic clubs on campus. 

"NDP has given me the opportunity to explore many of my passions--from science to running--in a welcoming environment. Both inside and outside the classroom, I have been able to grow as a person while fostering supportive relationships with both students and teachers."

Brooke Bales - NDP Student Turned NDP Faculty Member

Brooke Bales graduated Summa Cum Laude and top of her accounting class with her B.S.B.A. from U of A in December of 2017. She received the Accounting Outstanding Senior Award upon graduation. Then she went on to earn a Master's Degree in Accounting from U of A in December of 2018. "Bear Down!"

Now she's returned "home" to help her students succeed the way the NDP faculty helped her while she was in high school.

"The NDP community feels like family; the connections made here last far past graduation. The education I received at NDP prepared me for college-level curriculum and taught me the importance of keeping my faith, family and friends at my core while pursuing my future goals.
