About NDP: As a Catholic, independent, college preparatory school for girls in grades 6 through 12, Notre Dame Prep inspires students to pursue academic excellence, spiritual growth and the practice of justice. Infused with the spirit of the School Sisters of Notre Dame and rooted in the teachings of the Catholic Church, the NDP community strives to answer God’s call “…to act justly, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly with God.” (Micah 6:8) For nearly 150 years, NDP has remained rooted in the tradition of outstanding liberal arts education while being responsive to the educational needs of the times. A comprehensive STEAM program, the Bette Ellis O’Conor Humanities Program, 24 Advanced Placement courses, a robust internship program, vibrant extra-curricular offerings, and a dual focus on spirituality and service complement NDP’s curriculum. They also cement NDP’s success as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence (2020, 2012, 1985), a Regional Manufacturing Institute of Maryland Emerging Leader (2018) and Champion of Manufacturing (2020), and a Baltimore Sun Top Workplace since 2011.
