How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in Notre Dame Academy. We are committed to maximizing the academic potential of every student. Student effort and ability are the most critical elements necessary for student success, and a student’s past performance in school is a strong predictor of future success.

In order to apply for admission to Notre Dame Academy, the applicant must have successfully completed the previous grade and be in good standing both academically and behaviorally. Eighth grade students must earn a diploma from their middle school in order to be considered for admission.

We reserve the right to decline admission to individuals with educational, behavioral (major disciplinary record), or other needs preventing them from being successful at Notre Dame Academy and being served by our program. Please note that a student’s reading level is a major predictor of high school success. A review of the current reading level as evidenced by MAPS, STAR, etc. will be part of the admissions process. Students reading significantly below grade level may be denied admission.

The process for admission may include an interview with the principal based on the recommendation made by the Admissions Committee. The Admissions Committee will make the final decision regarding admission to Notre Dame Academy.

In the event Notre Dame Academy reaches enrollment capacity, a waiting list will be put in place with priority given to Catholic applicants who are in good standing with their parish.
