Shadow Program - Fall 2022
Eighth graders are paired with a current freshman or sophomore student to view a typical school day at Notre Dame High School. The shadow visit includes meeting with a member of the admissions team, and a visit to classes. The program is filled on a first-come, first-served basis and is offered September to December.
Class Visits - Fall 2022
Notre Dame students and the admissions team will give presentations during the school day at local middle schools from September to November. Our students will share their first-hand experiences of Notre Dame, and leave participants with information about the admissions process and transitioning to high school.
Eighth Grade Day - November 11, 2022
Student Program: Students experience a day personalized for eighth graders to expose them to "life at ND" which includes an assembly, short classes, brunch, and a closing rally. The event is organized and implemented by the sophomore class, who will be "big siblings" to the incoming class.
Parent/Guardian Program: Parents and guardians are invited to attend a special session hosted by members of the administration and admissions teams. The session will include a deeper dive into our distinctive programs and the opportunity to interact with a student panel. The event will be held on campus at the same time as the student program.
High School Placement Test - January 2023
Notre Dame has a test optional admissions process, which allows students the choice to take the HSPT or to submit an academic sample of work that they feel demonstrates their ability and potential. Students may still opt to take the test and submit the results to Notre Dame. Please view the Frequently Asked Questions section of the application page for more information.
L.E.A.D. (Learn. Empower. Act. Discover.)
As part of Notre Dame’s ongoing commitment to Catholic education and women’s leadership, we offer a series of workshops for young women currently in seventh grade at Catholic elementary schools in the Diocese of San Jose.
