Student Life at ND


Notre Dame in West Haven is much more than a campus: it’s the home base of a community rich in tradition and ripe with innovation -- one that, once you join in, you’re part of for a lifetime.

Here, students of diverse backgrounds come together to become young men of character, compassion and confidence by making the ND experience their own.

From club meetings, spiritual retreats and community service, to dances, dining and parent participation, ND campus life truly embodies our mission to educate minds and hearts.

ND Student Life Shines

ND Community Period

Our daily school schedule now incorporates community time within the school day, ensuring each student can participate in a variety of clubs and activities.

Campus Ministry

Campus ministry supports the spiritual growth and moral development of our school community in the Catholic faith.


School-wide events such as the freshmen dinner dance, prom and graduation festivities bond our brotherhood together.

School Spirit

ND school spirit is incomparable. Our students support each other in big ways at athletic games, club competitions and fine arts performances.

Parents Have an Important Place Here.

ND Families

“When I describe the ND community, I use the word inclusive.  It’s impressive how our student backgrounds are so diverse, and yet they treat each other as brothers.” Liz Snape, Faculty & Chair, Science Department

Every parent and guardian is a member of the ND Parents Association, a great place to network together, provide support for the school and have fun.  
The annual spring parent event, ND Knight Out, features student entertainment, good food, great music and fun games -- all in support of our wonderful school community.
Shopping incentives and additional fundraising events provide easy opportunities to get involved.
