Boys Thrive Here

The All-Boys Advantage at Notre Dame.

As the parent of a recent graduate told us, “We gave you our boys and you returned them to us at Graduation as ND Men.” In its 73 year history, Notre Dame has witnessed that four year transformation time and time again with over 12,000 graduates who now span the globe.

How Boys Learn at Notre Dame

  • Critical Thinking
    • Our students are taught to be conscious consumers of all information. Critical and inventive thinking is nurtured, preparing them for life’s obstacles by setting them on a path to successful and ethical problem-solving.

  • Innovation
    • Our faculty seamlessly integrate contemporary classroom models and 21st-century learning practices into everyday lessons.  Here, learning is an active, engaging experience to ensure our graduates are ready for whatever 21st-century careers are ahead.

  • Collaboration
    • Being a team player is important both on the field and in the classroom.  Here, our students learn how to share their personal ideas, acknowledge others’ opinions, and listen patiently in order to work toward shared goals.
