    I always New I wanted to attend Notre Dame high school but for financial reasons, I didn’t think it was possible. With the help of ND’s financial aid department and a mentor program known as Shepherd, my dream became a reality and I was not disappointed! ND was everything I had hoped it would be and then some! I have received a top notch education and made lifelong friendships with many other life lessons and memories along the way! I highly recommend NDWH!

    The experience and professionalism offered at Notre Dame High School greatly prepared me for the course load placed upon me in college. Their focus on brotherhood garnered a strong sense of inclusivity and endowed me with not only lifelong friends, but lifelong brothers. The strong emphasis placed on volunteering and service orientation has followed me through to college and allowed me to give back to many communities. Involvement in athletics at Notre Dame remains one of the best decisions in my life and led to memories which will last a lifetime. The involvement of teachers in the lives of students truly provided a nurturing environment in which to grow and prosper. Additionally, the transformation which occurred in my time at Notre Dame was essential to my success in college. I would highly recommend Notre Dame of West Haven to any student hoping to advance academically, psychologically, socially, and emotionally.
    My experience at Notre Dame in my first two years has been exceptional. The diverse selection of clubs and organizations offered have allowed me to involve myself in a variety of friend groups. Additionally, involvement in the hockey team has awarded me with life lessons that will remain with me forever. The teachers and staff at Notre Dame treat every student with respect and humility, allowing for comfortable and sincere student-teacher interactions. The academic and social growth which I have already experienced will undoubtedly prepare me for the next step in my education. Notre Dame is an excellent fit for students interested in diversifying their talents and broadening their horizons.
