The Toronto Catholic District School Board is using an online application process for the 2021-2022 academic school year for all secondary schools. Applications will be done centrally through the school boards admissions department. 

The online application site will be open beginning October 8th through October 29th, 2020. Applications received after that time will be placed on a wait list. A parent guide will also be available on the board admission site. Please note parents must have a functioning email address in order to apply. 

Acceptance to Notre Dame is based on the number of applicants and the demand for that year. There is no way to predict how many students will apply or be accepted on a yearly basis.

Parents are cautioned every year to make an informed choice by talking to their elementary school teacher/principal about their child's needs and are encouraged to attend the secondary school open house in their area. 

Once your daughter has been accepted to Notre Dame, you will receive your acceptance package and be asked to complete an Option Sheet, in consultation with the Grade 8 teacher.  The Notre Dame registration evening will be held on February 18, 2021 from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm.

Transition to High School Summer School Program
Why not start your high school experience this summer earning a credit?  Notre Dame High School is offering HIF1O1 Exploring Family Studies, a summer school program for all incoming Grade 9 students who have been accepted to Notre Dame. 


This course explores the challenges faced by all people: how to meet basic needs, how to
relate to others, how to manage resources, and how to become responsible members of society. Students will acquire knowledge and skills that are needed to make the transition to adulthood. Teachers will instruct students in developing interpersonal, decision-making, and practical skills related to daily life. Students will explore the functioning of families and the diversities found among families and within society.

The four week program runs during the month of July.  Activities include opportunities to build essential math and literacy skills, foundations in leadership development, outdoor/recreational excursions as well as a variety of creative/artistic pursuits. This is an excellent opportunity for students to meet new friends and become familiar with their new school. 

Program registration for the Transition Program will take place  on Thursday, February 18, 2021 at Notre Dame High School from 5:00pm - 7:00pm.  The registration form will be included in the student registration package mailed home. The last day to register is yet to be determined but will be mid March 2021.  For more information please contact the school.
