Notre Dame Preparatory
Notre Dame is committed to building
the minds, bodies, and souls of young adults by integrating
faith into a challenging college preparatory curriculum
that promotes academic excellence, instills moral
values, and encourages lifelong service.
Graduating seniors have been awarded more than
$13 ,000,000 in college scholarships from prestigious
universities nationwide. These students are
being accepted at the finest universities, including
Brown University, Duke University, Northwestern University,
Stanford University, the University of Southern California,
and the University of Notre Dame. Our students
have included, 10 National Merit finalists,
18 commended scholars, four National Hispanic Scholars
and one National Achievement Black American Scholar.
They have achieved highest honors in the national
Word Masters Challenge and at the American Mathematics
Contest. Talented students are involved with visual
and performing arts programs. Additionally,
students have been selected on the basis of their
academic records and high moral character to participate
in the Phoenix Youth and Education Commission, Valley
Teen Leadership, and the National Youth Leadership
Forum of Defense, Intelligence, Diplomacy and Medicine.
Students from all classes currently attend the
U.S. Air Force Academy, West Point, and the Citadel.
Notre Dame's athletic programs continue to flourish with the many impressive accomplishments of our teams and individual athletes under the direction of the school's staff of dedicated coaches. The athletic program has produced 27 team state championships. State championships include football twice, basketball, track, girls’ volleyball, girls’ soccer, ice hockey, men and women’s golf, performance cheer, women’s tennis, swim, and pom. The hockey team also has won the Rocky Mountain regional championship twice and is the first Arizona high school to win the title. Numerous students have received athletic scholarships to college. Several have been recruited by professional teams. In total, NDP has won 27 team state championships.
Our students actively contribute to our campus and to our community with the support of many generous parents and teachers. While NDP students are required to serve our community by completing a schedule of Christian Service hours, we are also blessed with many wonderful students who go above and beyond the requirements. NDP students contribute more than 30,000 Christian Service hours each year to their churches and to organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, Hands Across the Border, Special Olympics, and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, to name a few. One student served as an ambassador to China as part of the Phoenix Sister Cities Program. Students in each grade level participate in an annual retreat, where a day of reflection gives them an opportunity to share and to gather with their peers. For many families, the gathering of NDP students and their parents at our Annual Communion Breakfasts becomes a treasured memory.
Building minds, bodies, and souls -
our assignment is to do God’s will.
