School-day open house sessions to feature Notre Dame lower and middle schools in real-time


Notre Dame will be hosting special school-day open house sessions on Tuesday, March 20, and Wednesday, March 21, as its lower and middle schools open their doors during the day when classes are in session. It is an opportunity for parents to sit in the classrooms, roam the hallways and watch Notre Dame students and teachers in action — in “real-time.” 

NDPMA, which offers the rigorous International Baccalaureate program in all three of its divisions, plans two open house sessions—morning and afternoon—on both days. See schedule below.

Kathleen Offer, who heads Notre Dame’s admissions group, said the school looks forward to these school-day events because it gives prospective parents who still may be undecided about a school for their children an up-close view of all the great things going on at Notre Dame during the day. 

“We are pleased with the number of students who have already initiated and—in many cases—completed the admissions process at all three divisions of the school,” Offer said. “More importantly, we continue to be impressed by the quality of these students. Every day we receive more records and applications from young men and women who are outstanding scholars, athletes, artists, leaders and faithful servants. Without reservation, we believe that the students coming our way will continue to strengthen Notre Dame according to our mission.”
