Rise to the Challenge and Seek Knowledge

At NDP, we believe the greatest service we can provide our students is to instill in them a love of learning and to provide them with the necessary skills to pursue their dreams in college and beyond. NDP offers a comprehensive college preparatory curriculum designed to prepare young men and women for the rigors of the collegiate world. Our students receive personalized education with our 14:1 student to faculty ratio. Our student to counselor ratio is 170:1, versus local public schools where it is as high as 900:1. 

We offer learning programs that span the spectrum of learners from students who need extra time to master a skill to those who learn quickly and need to be challenged. We incorporate faith and reason in all of our classes. Using an eight-period day, students graduate with 28.5 credits and 120 hours of Christian service to the community. Click here for the current Course Description Guide.
