Expertise in Teaching Young Men
At Notre Dame, the Brothers of Holy Cross and their colleagues have become known for their particular expertise in educating young men, whose energy and interest need to be channeled if learning and character development are to take place. Seeking a balance between the two elements, schools founded and operated by the Congregation of Holy Cross – be they co-ed or single gender -- place equal emphasis on academics and values. At Notre Dame, this student-centered education takes place both in and beyond the classroom.
The nearly hour-long classes that go with the trimester schedule offer time for hands-on learning and/or group projects to become part of most courses. In other words, our students don't sit in a chair all day. Our teachers know methods that animate learning and have the skills to apply them.
