...educating its students in mind, body, & soul with the love of Jesus, the discipline of Joseph, & the faith of Mary.


The courses which are offered at Notre Dame fulfill the requirements of the Louisiana State Department of Education for graduation. The courses  also provide a challenge to a fairly wide range of student abilities. To graduate with a Notre Dame diploma will require more work than the State  minimum requirements. Seven courses will be taken each year that a student is enrolled at Notre Dame. To be eligible for a Notre Dame diploma a student must accumulate 28 credits.
