About PND

Welcome to Peoria Notre Dame High School

Centered around daily opportunities to develop personal relationships with Jesus Christ, Peoria Notre Dame offers a robust college-preparatory curriculum and engaging athletic and extracurricular opportunities. Its nationally recognized and expansive academic pathways provide students with college credit, critical thinking skills, real-world experiences, and career exploration, while its teams, clubs, activities, and classrooms infuse in students a love of community and lifelong learning. With faith as its foundation and service at its core, PND inspires students to live as Catholic witnesses in the modern world.

Our Christ-centered and academically excellent education prepares students for college and equips them for successful and fulfilling lives; our many athletic teams and extracurricular activities help to develop our students in various ways outside the classroom.

We celebrate our more than 150-year tradition of shaping the leaders and faithful citizens of this generation, showing each student that God has a plan for their lives and fulfilling that plan leads to the deepest of authentic human happiness. In all we do, we model and teach Catholic values, seek excellence in all we do, enjoy a united family environment, and provide a safe and virtuous learning environment that supports both the individual and the entire community.

Our History

Few schools have a heritage as unique as that of Peoria Notre Dame, a result of the rich legacies of the Academy of Our Lady, Spalding Institute, and Bergan High School.

Founded following the consolidation of these three schools, Peoria Notre Dame remains proudly rooted in long standing traditions while pursuing the latest educational and technological innovations.
