The academics at Notre Dame Prep are very challenging,unless you are in the phase two only accepted because you are a legacy kind of girl. The classes in which you are enrolled in are harder than most college courses especially if you are in Parallel. NDP offers many different courses for everyone.
There are many activities and sports that receive constant awards and recognition. Most noted is the Lacrosse team, which constantly goes to championships, also since pretty much if you are on the varsity team, you will get recruited by the college of your choice. Other sports teams constantly win awards, championships, and recognition. The other activities include theater(dominated by Ms. Ward who constantly makes the drama kids cry because of her overpowering spite towards being young), speech and debate, various language clubs, PAW, SADD, Student Council, Campus Ministry, Camp Umoja, etc.
Notre Dame Prep girls buy coffee at Starbucks, and shop at Towson towne center
NDP: Lets shop!
NDP 2:OK! but i have to do my parallel homework first.
NDP: Alright, I'll meet you there later, in Sepohra at 3.
