Thank you for your interest in Notre Dame Catholic School!
Notre Dame continues a century-long tradition of academic excellence and spiritual formation in Wichita Falls dating back to its beginning as the Academy of Mary Immaculate in 1904. In that time our mission has remained consistent – helping our students grow in their faith, as well as gain knowledge and skills that prime them for success both inside the classroom and beyond our walls. Our enrichment courses and extra-curricular offerings in music, art, theater, foreign language and athletics also offer students the opportunity to develop into well-rounded individuals. Most importantly, Notre Dame strives to produce fully-formed disciples of Jesus Christ.
I invite you to learn more about our school, tour our classrooms and find out how Notre Dame can be the educational experience best suited for your family. Faith, Academics, Student Life – it is all here! I look forward to showing you more about what makes our school such a unique educational option.
