Founded in 1873 by the School Sisters of Notre Dame, a teaching order from Germany, Notre Dame Preparatory School is one of Baltimore's oldest Catholic, college preparatory schools for girls. The school's original mission--to foster academic excellence, spiritual growth and practice of social justice in its students--has inspired more than 6,000 living alumnae and continues to inspire the approximately 800 girls currently enrolled in grades 6-12. Notre Dame Prep is located in Towson, Maryland, north of Baltimore City.

Where Girls Become Women Who Transform the World

As a Catholic, independent, college preparatory school for girls in grades 6 through 12, Notre Dame Prep inspires students to pursue academic excellence, spiritual growth and the practice of justice. Infused with the spirit of the School Sisters of Notre Dame and rooted in the teachings of the Catholic Church, the NDP community strives to answer God’s call “…to act justly, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly with God.” (Micah 6:8)
