Application Forms

Thank you for your interest in enrolling your child in Notre Dame Catholic Schools for the 2018-19 school year! We are very excited about the quality and direction of our programs and look forward to having you join the Notre Dame family. You are always welcome to visit our schools for a tour.

Our admissions process is a sincere attempt to look at each child’s individual learning needs to determine if we have the most appropriate educational environment for him/her. Past school records and enrollment forms equip our admissions committee with information to best place each student. Please be sure to provide all requested documentation. 

Please note that applications for both Universal Pre-K and Montessori Pre-K are not available online due to the additional paperwork required for those programs. These applications may be pick-up at Notre Dame Elementary School during regular school hours.

Acceptance letters are sent in late April-early May.  We look forward to assisting you with any questions or concerns you may have during this important process.


Jim Jones, Admissions Director
