The first step in the admissions process is to submit an application, either by applying online or printing out a hard copy application.  Hard copy applications may be faxed to Notre Dame at (607)737-8903 , delivered to the front office in person, or mailed to the following address: Notre Dame HS Admissions, 1400 Maple Ave, Elmira, NY 14904.

Upon receipt of your completed application packet, it is reviewed by the admissions committee.  The committee determines not only if the prospective student will be a good fit for Notre Dame, but also if our school best fits that student’s unique interests and needs.  We also attempt to meet with the child and parent to have a better opportunity to understand the reason for their desire to attend Notre Dame HS that may not be reflected in the application itself.    


Typically, after all of the required application materials have been submitted to Notre Dame, families should be notified of acceptance via a letter mailed home within two to three weeks.


Please note that there is NO application fee as we want anyone who wants to explore the possibility of entering Notre Dame HS to do so without a financial risk.  After receiving the acceptance letter, a registration fee of $100 to reserve your child’s spot is due.


All general inquiries regarding the application process should be directed to Brett Moore  at (607) 734- 2267 option 8 or
