The Institute of Notre Dame (IND), located in the heart of Baltimore, offers a unique educational experience for high school girls. Founded by the School Sisters of Notre Dame (SSND), our students are independent young women of strength, compassion and character. IND opened its doors 168 years ago. We share the SSND message of hope, faith and education for all. The urban experience develops our students’ inner strengths, increases their depth of character and prepares them for the “real-world.” Strong and meaningful traditions connect our girls to the 11,500 alumnae who came before them. Our unique location in a vibrant, creative city affords our girls many opportunities to learn, work, volunteer and enjoy themselves all over Baltimore and beyond. IND is first in Maryland to offer all three programs developed by Project Lead the Way®, the nation’s top provider of STEM curriculum—Biomedical Sciences, Engineering and Computer Science. Five new courses, a new dance studio, arts scholarships and planned upgrades to our historic auditorium enhance our already popular Visual & Performing Arts Program. With more than 40 clubs and activities as well as 19 sports teams, our girls have many opportunities to pursue interests outside the classroom.
