Thank you for visiting our admissions page! Simply by clicking here, you are on your way to a bright future as a Blazer! But we can’t talk about the future without a nod to the past! This school year (2023-2024), NDP celebrates 150 years of existence. A century and a half of educating young girls in the spirit of The School Sisters of Notre Dame, to become changemakers, transformative thinkers, and leaders. It was the vision of Blessed Theresa Gerhardinger, when she opened the school’s doors in 1873 on what is now the campus of Notre Dame University of Maryland. It was then that she saw the need for women to be educated, to have a voice, and to use that voice to transform the world.
As a Catholic, independent school, Notre Dame Preparatory School remains committed to upholding Catholic values, to instilling in our students the words of the Prophet Micah to “Act Justly, Love Tenderly, and Walk Humbly with God.” This is what we hope is a goal for you, as parents, and as students. If we all answered Micah’s call, it could change the world for the better.
This is an exciting time for your family. Whether you are looking to come in 6th grade, 9th grade, or relocating to the area, those of us on the admissions team are here to help guide you every step of the way. At NDP, we understand girls and we wholeheartedly believe in the power of all-girl education. We have been doing it for 150 years, and plan to keep doing it for another 150 years, and then some!
