Student Life » Welcome


NDB students enjoy many wonderful opportunities, but one thing stands out above all others is the spirit they bring to everything they do. From the moment they join the School, students become part of a legacy of educated and empowered women worldwide. The school motto, “I am Notre Dame,” shines through, as history and traditions unite NDB students for a lifetime.
NDB is home to Aquacades, a spirited rally featuring choreographed aquatics and dance routines, held every spring; it is the longest running high school aquacade held in the United States since 1942.
The School’s spiritual life program challenges students to put their faith into action with goals that include fostering a love of service, living Gospel values, and reaching out to the marginalized. Grounded in the Hallmarks of a Notre Dame de Namur learning community, students practice social justice, compassion, and dignity for all, as they build community with those they serve. Experiences of service and work for justice come together in the junior Capstone Project, which grows out of a personal passion and desire to serve the world. Kairos is a powerful optional retreat open to upperclasswomen. Through talks, small group discussions, prayer, and reflection, participants are given an opportune time to explore God’s presence in their everyday life, taking a deeper look at themselves and their relationships.
NDB’s vibrant student experience engages young women to develop their future passions and full potential. Every student has a chance to participate in leadership roles with a wide range of opportunities including Associated Student Body (ASB), Student Council and Leadership Board positions where candidates are selected through an application and interview process. Leadership Boards include: California Scholarship Federation, National Honor Society, Link Crew, Ambassadors, Marketing & Communications, Spiritual Life, and Health & Wellness. The School has many clubs covering a wide range of interests, from TigerBots to Anime, Save the Turtles and many more. The School’s spirited traditions and joyful day-to-day activities shine through on the School’s social media platforms @ndbtigers.
Notre Dame Belmont offers an excellent visual & performing arts program, featuring courses open to all grade levels, including art history, graphic design, photography, video production, as well as drawing and painting. NDB has a first-rate dance program and exciting spirit squad, with a competitive cheer team and championship pom dance team, that together attract many prospective students. The School participates in joint theater and musical performances with its Tri-School partners.
Athletic teams include soccer, lacrosse, water polo, swimming, basketball, tennis, volleyball, competitive sport cheer, pom (dance team), softball, track & field, cross country, and golf; additionally, NDB has expanded its renowned volleyball program to include beach volleyball. The School’s four sand courts are the most offered by any school in Northern California. NDB truly offers something for everyone. Many talented students have gone on to play college sports at top universities across the country including Wellesley, UCLA, Cal, USC, Columbia, and Purdue.
