Mission Statement: Notre Dame Collegiate nurtures in students a love of Christ and commitment to Catholic ideals. Our staff is dedicated to supporting students in their pursuit of excellence in academics, extra-curricular activities, and service to the community.
Our mission speaks to the fundamental purpose of our school. Notre Dame Collegiate is a school which expects students to develop the capacity and the courage to cultivate their gifts and shine their light unto the world. Every student is challenged to grow in knowledge, skill and understanding. Our dedicated staff enkindles a passion for learning in the students of NDC and serve as models of Christ in their words and actions. The staff of Notre Dame Collegiate works in partnership with the family and parish to serve as the Trinity of Catholic Education.
Notre Dame Collegiate offers a wide range of academic and extra-curricular opportunities. Whether looking for an extra challenge through Advanced Placement or additional support through our Learning Support Program, students are faced with high expectations and all of the love and support needed to achieve those expectations. Academic focus is balanced with opportunities to participate in excellent Fine Arts and Athletics programs.
A variety of Timberwolves sports programs are offered along with Drama productions, a state of the art Design Studio, a Show Choir, and Fine Arts festivals. Students are also given opportunities to get involved in specific career preparation through the Work Experience, Green Certificate, and Registered Apprentice Programs. Notre Dame Collegiate boasts a vibrant international education program and provides intensive ESL programing for our English Language Learners. Finally, while our students are immersed in a strong culture of faith, they also receive opportunities to grow in their personal and communal relationship with Christ through Mass, liturgical celebrations, retreats and service missions.
