The conventional model for high schools no longer meets the needs of teens today. In this technological world, teens are more isolated than ever before. To remedy this, our student body is divided into 10 Houses. These Houses build community, mentorship and opportunities for growth and leadership.
Being a member of a House gives our students times throughout the day for real interpersonal interaction with students from all grades and members of our faculty and staff.
At Notre Dame Prep, we seek to educate the whole student; mind, body and soul. The House System allows students to be recognized for more than GPA or athletic achievement. Within their House, students' talents are explored and nurtured by a built-in support system.
The Houses compete for House points against each other through academics, Christian service and school spirit, while showing Reverence, Respect and Responsibility toward each another.
The House System is an innovation that Notre Dame Prep has implemented to effectively fulfill our mission of building disciples.
Our goal is to find and foster the brilliance in each student and to give each soul on campus a place where they are embraced by their fellow House members while building a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and a desire to live in true discipleship.
We are NDP. One Community of Saints - 10 Houses.
