Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to The Notre Dame School’s website. For generations parents and students have discovered and made their way to our Catholic School in Portsmouth. Like a hidden gem, The Notre Dame Schools has become the answer for those parents who find themselves asking one of life’s most frustrating questions: Where can I find a school that will enable my child to realize his/her untapped potential and receive a quality Catholic education? You need a turning point for your child. You have found The Notre Dame Schools.

We believe strongly in our school, and it is my hope that our website can provide for you a healthy and transparent glimpse of the Notre Dame Schools. Through the various links and pages you will learn what makes Notre Dame such a unique Catholic school: academic success through student accountability; athletic success through excellent sports and training programs; a fresh start for those needing a new environment; a school that is simultaneously traditional, relevant, and personal.

The mission of Notre Dame Catholic Junior and Senior High School is to provide all students with a Catholic environment and the resources to develop in stewardship, leadership, scholarship and citizenship in accordance with God’s teachings.
