Empowering Young Women
Mount Notre Dame offers a unique and complete college preparatory experience. It is an experience that is rooted in Catholic tradition and features a vibrant learning community, offering superior academics and a comprehensive education. There are vast extracurricular opportunities for our students that foster leadership, team work and a sense of responsibility to share their gifts with others. The result – bright, confident young women who go on to excel in college, career and in life. Mount Notre Dame has 712 students enrolled in Grade 9 through Grade 12 as of October 31, 2020.
The foundation of the Mount Notre Dame experience is the impressive academic program. With 20 Advanced Placement and 26 Honors courses, MND’s Honors/AP opportunities (including an AP course available to freshmen) are among the best in the region. MND’s Billiart Scholar Honors Program, for students scoring in the 90th percentile or higher on the High School Placement Test (HSPT), exposes students to not only the most challenging course of study and early exposure to college placement tests but also to a vast array of career exploration opportunities.
Shaping the Next Generation of Leaders
MND’s engineering courses prepare the scientifically-talented young women of today for a career in this highly competitive field. MND also boasts strong programs in the humanities that offer leadership opportunities and a greater awareness of the inter-connectedness of our global society. MND is also deeply committed to the role of women in philanthropy. Its student-run Youth Philanthropy Council is a mini-foundation that has made an impact regionally, nationally and internationally.
Family Spirit is Alive!
MND’s family spirit sets it apart. Walking through the halls, it is evident that Mount Notre Dame’s students support, encourage and challenge each other.
