Notre Dame College Prep (NDCP) is a male-only Roman Catholic secondary school in Niles. In the tradition of Holy Cross, an NDCP education emphasizes the formation of the hearts and minds. This approach promotes the development of the whole person. We believe such an experience is critical, since society has a great need for people who lead their lives possessing intellectual curiosity, strong moral character, and social responsibility. We further believe the quality of education is dependent on the quality of the people engaged in this purpose. Consequently, Notre Dame educators are people of faith who motivate, inspire, and lead the student towards academic excellence while fostering critical thinking, creativity, and leadership.
