Educating The Whole Student: Mind, Body and Soul

At Note Dame Preparatory, we know that education in NOT a "one-size-fits-all" endeavor. We aim to educate our students through various academic programs, innovative technology, and Christian service. We are an inclusive school with academic programs for all types of learning styles.

  • St. Aloysius Gonzaga Program is for students who demonstrate academic progress but need extra time to adapt to our rigorous college preparatory curriculum.
  • St. Thomas Aquinas Program is for students who learn at an accelerated rate.
  • Advanced Placement is a course of study designed to prepare high school students for college. Colleges and universities may grant placement and course credit to students who obtain high school on the AP examinations.
  • Dual Enrollment offers students the opportunity to take college courses while in high school. Courses are taught by college-approved high school teachers,  and students save time and money by earning both high school and college credits simultaneously at an affordable rate. 

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” ― Aristotle
