Academic Excellence

Departments and Programs

@ Notre Dame there is a focus on Catholic Graduate Expectations and academic excellence in all pathways. We have a wide selection of courses.  

Departments

Our small school environment allows for departments to work more collaboratively. There are many opportunities for cross-curricular experiences for students. 

Advanced Placement

Notre Dame currently offers Advanced Placement courses in Mathematics, Biology, English, French, and History. Senior AP exams allow students to experience the challenge of university content while completing courses at the high school level.  Those who participate in AP develop deep critical thinking skills that can be transferred to other subject areas and programs.

 

Students who write AP exams in Grade 11 and 12 are advised to register for AP courses in Grade 9. 

 

Advanced Placement programs at Notre Dame provide students with enrichment opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom!
