Notre Dame Among Top 50, Again
Notre Dame High School was named one of America's top 50 Catholic secondary schools by the Cardinal Newman Society’s National Catholic High School Honor Roll for the second time. The award is conferred on a two year award cycle, and Notre Dame was named to the top 50 for the first time in 2010 and now again in 2012. The purpose of the Honor Roll is to recognize and encourage excellence in Catholic secondary education. It is a critical resource for parents and educators that distinguish those schools that excel in three categories: academic excellence, Catholic identity, and civic education.
There are currently over 1200 Catholic High Schools in the nation serving over 590,000 students. The best schools demonstrate a balanced excellence, which includes an active Catholic culture, sound college preparation, and integration of Church teaching in all departments. These schools also display sound moral, catechetical, and civic formation that prepares students for vocations in the world as political, religious, scientific, and business leaders.
"Notre Dame High School continues to be recognized for their outstanding faith-based education,” said Most Reverend Richard Stika, Bishop of Knoxville Diocese. “I congratulate Notre Dame for once again being recognized as one of the top 50 Catholic High Schools in the United States for the second consecutive time. The good work being done at Notre Dame is a clear example of how the Church’s vital ministry of Catholic education is being implemented in the Chattanooga area.”
Perry Storey who has served as Principal of the school since 1996 stated that,“It is with great pride that we announce this accomplishment. I am blessed to have the opportunity lead a school community that has been such a great part of Chattanooga’s history for 136 years.Notre Dame continues her mission nurturing young adults and encouraging them to make good life decisions and care passionately about their futures as community leaders. “
One hundred percent of the Notre Dame Class of 2012 chose college as their post high school path. Those 104students were accepted to 99 different colleges and universities in 30 states and the District of Columbia, and they were awarded over $5.5 million in scholarships to pursue education at the college level.The 2012 graduates exceeded local, state, and national ACT composite and Benchmark College Readiness scores. In addition, Notre Dame Students performed over 10,000 hours of community service hours during theschool year and many alumni continue to give back in their everyday lives.
Mr. Storey alsostressed that “students at Notre Dame are engaged in a curriculum that provides them with the preparation needed for successful transitions.” With over 53 hours of Advance Placement and Dual Enrollment College Credit classes being offered, students can choose from classes that give them a head start by earning college credit while in high school.
