Academics as Special as You

IND believes you deserve an education that meets your strengths, your goals, your needs. Get ready to be challenged to do your personal best, as you design a schedule that suits you within four learning levels. IND’s faculty place you individually, so you could be in different levels in different subjects, such as Honors English and College Prep math. It’s all about you—your strengths, your goals, your needs.

A School for All Girls

The School Sisters of Notre Dame envisioned the Institute of Notre Dame to be a school that included all girls - and we live up to the faith of our founding mothers. The first quarter of 2013, two of every five students made the honor roll. Eleven percent of IND students are also members of the National Honor Society, a prestigious society that requires rigorous scholarship and community service. These students go beyond academic success and demonstrate excellence “in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Character.”
Established by the

Notre Dame in 1847.
