Scottsdale’s preeminent Catholic college preparatory high school will send the largest number of acceptance letters in school history, to the Class of 2020 on Feb. 19.

Notre Dame Preparatory is attracting more and more students each year, according to a press release. This fall marks the third consecutive year in which NDP’s application pool exceeded the previous year’s total. With more than 450 applications submitted, the NDP Class of 2020 will be drawn from the most competitive admissions pool in the school’s history.

“Families are drawn to NDP by our combination of faith-centered formation experiences, college prep curriculum and excelling co-curricular activities,” stated Matt Rylski, admissions director at Notre Dame Prep, in the release.

Each year the school adds to its academic and athletic accomplishments while systematically growing the campus and student population.

According to Principal Jim Gmelich, NDP feels like a small school but has all the opportunities that big schools provide.

“It is really the best of both worlds,” he stated in the release.

Notre Dame Prep opened in 2002 and is a Catholic diocesan college preparatory high school with a co-ed enrollment of 894 students. The school has received national recognition for the caliber of its academic and athletic programs.

Notre Dame Preparatory located at 9701 E. Bell Road in Scottsdale.
