Notre Dame Preparatory High School is a Diocesan Catholic high school dedicated to the academic excellence of students through shared values. Notre Dame offers students learning opportunities to develop spiritually and academically to provide the highest quality Catholic high school experience possible.

By creating a culture of active participation in co-curricular and athletic activities, Notre Dame aims to develop every student’s whole being to enhance creativity, teamwork, passion, spirituality, leadership, and physical health.

A fast-growing modern school

In March 2001, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix purchased the school site that would become Notre Dame Preparatory High School. The school opened its doors to its very first freshman and sophomore class in August 2002. The first class of 72 students graduated in May 2005.

Over the next 15 years, the student body would grow 12-times larger. NDP now enrolls 904 students and serves as a leader in the Catholic school community. A top-rated school in Scottsdale, Notre Dame Prep boasts unique programs for engineering, entrepreneurship, college-credit programs, and for students with learning exceptionalities. Notre Dame has also been recognized for its competitive athletic programs. Notable alumni include NASCAR driver Jagger Jones, MLB players Peter Bourjos and Aaron Slegers, and NFL player Sean Renfree.

A student body dedicated to giving back

Led by principal Jill Platt, students at Notre Dame Prep log over 35,000 service hours every year helping their community. NDP is dedicated to sending graduates into the world as educated leaders who use their mind and body to use their God-given gifts and talents to help others.

Despite the school’s large student body, each and every student can feel confident knowing they’re receiving the academic help they need. The average student-to-teacher ratio at NDP is six to one. In a student poll, up to 100% of students at NDP believe their teachers genuinely care about their students.
