Notre Dame’s curriculum, known for academic excellence and innovation, prepares its students for success in college. In fact, traditionally 99 percent of our graduates enter college each fall. We offer the innovative Moreau Honors Program
for highly qualified students and a curriculum designed for the unique learning style of boys. Notre Dame follows a trimester schedule
, in a rotation that increases the opportunities for hands-on learning and makes it possible to offer enriching elective courses.
Notre Dame creates each student’s schedule, challenging them to the best of their ability by looking at course content, level of difficulty of texts, the nature and difficulty of assignments and projects, as well as pace of instruction. Our curriculum accommodates a wide range of intellectual ability. Initially, we place students in a given level based on their previous academic record and the results of the admissions test.
As generation after generation of our alumni experience success in college and in their professional lives, the quality of a Notre Dame education is evident. Their success reflects a unity of effort on the part of teachers, administrators and staff to educate each young man to his highest potential.
