Great all boys school! Their focus on making young men of faith, scholarship and service from the boys entrusted to them is second to none. Individual attention, active encouragement, strong academics, parental involvement, and the overall caring nature of faculty and staff makes this a great gem for all boys.
Thankful for the experience my son had at NDCP. Perfect size, lots of opportunity to engage the students outside the classroom, something for everyone. Prepared him well for college. Thanks Dons!
