Rising 8th graders will get a head start exploring high school by joining us for a morning of fun at Mount Notre Dame! Participants will attend three hands-on workshops led by MND’s talented faculty. The program includes interacting with MND students for a snack break to learn more about the extracurricular life of MND. Participants will enjoy some MND cheers and receive a special gift!
