School Philosophy

The student is the focal point of Catholic Education. Every Notre Dame student is encouraged to work and learn to his or her maximum potential.

Learning is a co-operative endeavor shared among teachers, students and parents.

Notre Dame Catholic Secondary School is dedicated to academic excellence, the development of each individual’s interests and talents, and the nurturing of the Catholic Faith. Students are taught to think critically, work independently, communicate effectively and show respect for themselves, for others, and for the environment.

By accepting the challenge of education now, our students will be prepared to meet the future with faith, confidence, and a strong sense of their own self-worth. The staff of Notre Dame Catholic Secondary School, in partnership with home and church, is dedicated to helping our students respond to this challenge by encouraging them to discover the strengths and talents inherent in each and every one of them.
