COVID-19 Letter From The Diocese

March 11, 2020 Dear Catholic School Families, As you are no doubt aware, the State of Ohio has reported its first cases of the corona/COVID-19 virus, with reports of infection in Cuyahoga County.  I [...]

Mr. Bill Hobstetter, who drove the team bus for Notre Dame, passed away Tuesday. The Notre Dame Family would like to honor him as our # 1 FAN. Bill loved the kids as much as any fan ever did. He bought treats for teams and coaches after the games; bought T-Shirts and whatever else the kids were selling for fundraisers; sat behind the bench at games and haggled the referees, and showed up to games when he wasn’t even transporting the team. Bill had nicknames for all the kids, and always had game-day advice for the coaches and players. The teams always felt a win coming when Bill drove them to the games and sent them off the bus with a “high five"! Bill loved the kids’ energy and loved being among them. Mr. Hobstetter was one-of-a-kind as the Notre Dame students’ social media testimonials prove, and he will be missed. May God Bless Bill and the Hobstetter Family with Grace and Peace💙💛🏀🏈⚾️💙💛 ...

What students/parents say about us.

The Notre Dame Schools offer parents in this area a choice.  A choice to place their child in an environment that is grounded in faith, focused on academic excellence and committed to service to others above self.   Just walking through the school, you hear students saying “please”, “thank you” and just exercising common courtesy on a daily basis.   The small team sizes in all of ND’s sports allow my children to actively participate in any sport or activity of their choice.   Being a part of a team is teaching them invaluable lessons for life that sitting on the sidelines can’t.  And, Notre Dame CAN BE AFFORDABLE to anyone with scholarships always available.  There is always a way to give your child the best jump start to their future and The Notre Dame Schools is just that.

Jan Bailey, NDE Parent

As a Shawnee State University instructor, I am always impressed by the quality of students from Notre Dame High School.

Professor Dale Powell, Shawnee State University

If it wasn’t for Notre Dame High School, I wouldn’t have attended my dream college. I wouldn’t have been the places I’ve been, seen the things I’ve seen, or be the person I’ve become. Notre Dame has taken me places I never even imagined; there’s no telling where it will take you.

Kyle Tennant, NDHS Alumni

The Notre Dame Schools is the only school my husband Taylor and I considered for our 3 children. We are both graduates of Notre Dame and have been blessed with friendships that started in elementary school and continue today.   Everyday, we walk our children into a school filled with the children of our lifelong friends and drop them off into the classrooms of teachers we grew up with.   Notre Dame is more than a school to us;  it is a family.   A family that teaches the importance of loyalty, character, tradition and most importantly, a relationship with God.

We transferred our children to Notre Dame Elementary in 2018 and it has been the best decision we have made!  The academics and religion at NDE have been so successful in our children’s lives.  The experience at ND has exceeded our expectations and the added support within the classroom is remarkable.  With all the health issues that my daughter has been through, the administration, staff and ND families have rallied around our family and have shown unconditional support, understanding, prayer and love.  We are Family
