Upon entering Notre Dame Regional High School students, parents, staff and guests are greeted with a welcoming atmosphere based on our Catholic identity through Saints quotes on our walls, liturgical decor, and the Chapel in the center of the school building. Notre Dame puts great importance in the spiritual development of our students. Theology classes, retreats, liturgy, campus ministry and other activities invite students into a relationship with God.
Notre Dame students are encouraged to participate in volunteer service projects in the Church and community at large. Each club and sport perform acts of service. All-School service days are scheduled during the Lenten Season. By doing acts of service, students are living the Gospel and being Christ to those around them. In the words of St. Francis, “Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.”
There is something for everyone at Notre Dame. We encourage all students to become active in clubs, sports, performing or visual arts or campus ministry. If a Club doesn’t exist and there is student interest, we make it happen. Activities/Clubs encompass all areas of a student’s life: Academic, Cultural, Performing and Visual Arts, Special Interests, and Student Publications.
Notre Dame has a dynamic curriculum, responding to the needs of our students and making adjustments and improvements as the need arises. Our core courses fully prepare students for the rigors of college life. As a Catholic school our mission is to educate the whole child; therefore, we are a STREAM-focused school. STREAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics. At ND, religion is infused in every subject across the curriculum, and we include the arts and the skills necessary to communicate and advance in the real world in order to provide a well-rounded education for our students.
Our Athletic program is comprised of boys and girls sports through three seasons. Our program boasts many Conference, District, and State titles. Student Athletes are held to a high standard in the classroom and in their sport. Being an athlete requires discipline and perseverance. Coaches build upon what is taught in the classroom by encouraging in our students a sense of responsibility, leadership and sportsmanship.
