FOUR MILLION SCHOLARSHIP DOLLARS

EARNED BY OUR 2015 GRADUATES! 

Notre Dame H.S. offers an array of courses to meet the diverse interests of our small student population.  Students study theology in addition to the NYS diploma requirements and student-chosen electives earning a Buffalo Diocesan Diploma as well as a NYS Regents Diploma. The course catalog is dictated by student interest and, therefore, changes accordingly each year.

 

Students have the opporutinty to earn college credit while attending NDHS through our partnership with Alfred State and Genesee Community College's Accelerated College Enrollment (ACE) Program. Currently, students can choose from 16 college credit courses.
