Admissions Process

           



We are so happy that you have decided to include Notre Dame High School in your high school search.  The Admissions Office is available to assist you through this process.  Our admission application is available online right here on our Website.  The Admission staff is available to assist you with any questions that you may have.  

We love to have families visit our campus.  However, due to the current situation, we have moved our Admissions Office to a Virtual Admissions Office.  We will offer a Virtual Open House on Thursday, May 21 at 10:00 a.m. and Tuesday, May 26 at 7:00 p.m. We also offer individual Virtual Information Sessions for students and parents.  Please contact Karen Guastelle, Assistant Director of Admissions, at kguastelle@notredame.org to register for the Open House or to schedule an individual Information Session.

  • Application Requirements
    * Eighth-grade applicants must take an entrance exam to be considered for admission.  The Entrance Exam is held in late October.  A make-up date is offered in November.
    * An Academic Release Waiver is part of the application.  Please be sure it is signed electronically within the application. A copy of this form will be sent to the applicant's current school to request complete seventh and first marking period eighth-grade report cards.
  • * One letter of recommendation from one of your teachers, the Principal or Guidance Counselor is required.

* Some applicants are also invited for an interview as part of the admissions process. The Admissions Office contacts these students to schedule the interview.
