“To show great love for God and our neighbors,
it is how much love we put in the doing that makes our offering something beautiful.”

Mother Teresa


Notre Dame School has offered a highly respected program of academic excellence for 80 years and counting. Our curriculum follows the standards set by the Diocese of Sacramento which meet or exceed California State Standards. To view the content standards are for each grade; please visit the Catholic School Department's website at http://csd-sac.org/academics.

High-achievers and well-above-average test scores are the products of a committed and hard-working faculty and extensive program of study. Our students consistently excel at the high school level, as evidenced by their involvement in AP courses, student leadership, and placement in colleges and universities of their choice. In addition, Notre Dame students have earned honors in local and state-level speech and essay contests, spelling and geography bees, and science and history fairs. Thus, our graduates demonstrate preparation for a rich and full academic life - at the primary, secondary and collegiate level.
