Looking ahead to College

Notre Dame offers a college preparatory environment, allowing students the opportunity to earn more than 55 college credits. In addition, with access to our bridge program at Utica University and many dual enrollment classes at MVCC, many students complete their first year of college while enrolled at Notre Dame.

In 2021, 63 graduates earned over $6.3 million in college scholarships and are attending prestigious universities such as Dartmouth College, Rochester Institute of Technology, SMU, Union College, Virginia Tech, and more. Eighteen members of the class were members of the National Honor Society, and three received NYS Academic Excellence Awards.

Notre Dame students are offered numerous opportunities to get a head start on college planning, including one-on-one meetings with our Director of Guidance, Junior College Planning Night, College Visits, and Application Workshops. Notre Dame offers students a hands-on approach to college planning!
