Since 1851 Notre Dame San Jose has been providing an exemplary Catholic education to young women in the heart of downtown San Jose. We develop women of impact who are life-long learners, spiritual seekers, justice advocates and community leaders. 

We welcome applications from students who identify as female as well as those who were assigned female at birth and are aligned with the women-centric mission of Notre Dame San Jose. 

Each applicant is evaluated based on academic readiness and mission alignment.

Notre Dame High School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of education policies, admission policies, scholarships, loan programs, athletic or other school-administered programs.

Notre Dame does not have a program for international students and does not consider international applicants for admission to our school.

Eighth grade applicants for the Class of 2028 will receive decision notification emails after 5pm on Friday, March 15, 2024.

* Once the application cover sheet is submitted and fee paid, the application portal checklist should update within 48 business hours and provide access to the complete application and required forms.
