Last night we celebrated the Class of 2019 Vipers and their many accomplishments at the Senior Recognition Ceremony! At this morning’s assembly, their Notre Dame sisters cheered and shed a few tears as the Vipers left Julie Billiart Hall for the final time and officially joined the global network of Notre Dame alumnae.

Notre Dame's Class of 2020 is already following in the footsteps of their viper sisters with a long list of awards and honors. The Scholarship Committee recently awarded Junior Book Awards and Medals to some very deserving young women.

More than 300 seniors, juniors and their guests enjoyed a beautiful night of laughter, dancing and great food at this year's prom. The event, held at the Corinthian Grand Ballroom featured a red carpet!

Last week the Notre Dame community gathered for the last all-school mass of the year in the Cathedral Basilica of St Joseph. This joyful liturgy included the celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation. Notre Dame was pleased to welcome the Most Reverend Oscar Cantú, bishop of San Jose for his first liturgy with the school community. Bishop Cantú became the third bishop of San Jose on May 1, 2019 upon the retirement of Bishop Patrick J. McGrath.

More than 400 guests spent a beautiful sunny morning on the Notre Dame campus last weekend, coming together for the first time as the Class of 2023. Joined by their family members, our newest students met with faculty and staff to learn about life on campus and the many co-curricular opportunities.
