Located in the heart of the San Francisco Peninsula, between the City of San Francisco and Silicon Valley in the South Bay, our school is much more than just an outstanding Catholic college preparatory school. It’s a place where classmates become sisters, teachers become mentors, and ordinary moments become extraordinary experiences. Each student is valued and knows that she truly belongs here.
Notre Dame offers a rigorous college preparatory curriculum, including a rich diversity of classes and an extensive array of Advanced Placement and Honors courses. The curriculum ensures that all of our graduates meet University of California and California State University requirements. The Advanced Placement pass rate is far above the national average, and 100 percent of our graduates go on to college.
At Notre Dame you will find classmates, teachers, and staff who will help you to explore your talents and to achieve success in a variety of places—academics, the arts, athletics, clubs and community service. Most importantly, Notre Dame faculty and staff model values that will inspire you to be a confident woman who will make a difference in the 21st century.
