President's Message

Greetings from Notre Dame High School! And in this current culture of ‘make-overs,’ welcome to the newest look of our website.

We hope it will better provide you with what you need in the manner in which you need it – be it the quick announcement about an upcoming game or the in-depth information about a program such as Student Services.

As part of our transition, we have spent much time working with our marketing partners to create an overall look that speaks to who and what we are in this 21st century – still the only Catholic secondary school in the Chattanooga area.

Imagine this – Notre Dame High School is in our 142nd year of operation! One-hundred-forty-two years! And though our legacy is lengthy, so much continues to change and progress. After all, were she still the same as when the Dominican Sisters founded her in the 1870’s, we’d all be so vastly disappointed.

Instead, we live, breathe and grow. Best of all, our graduates are accepted all over the country with an amazing 92% of last year’s class receiving scholarship offers of merit.

How perfectly symbolic that Thomas Edison invented the light bulb in those earliest days of our existence! And just as he was beginning to shed light on the world, our first faculty had already begun to spread the True Light to our youth.

We’ve never stopped … and we never will.

George Valadie

President
