Experience Peoria Notre Dame

The four years you spend at Peoria Notre Dame will help you go further in your journey of becoming who God has made you to be.

With thousands of alumni across the country, Peoria Notre Dame students are proven to take what they’ve learned in these halls out into the world to make a difference.

“PND inspired and empowered me to move past my own academic boundaries and strive to be more accountable and transform for the common good, said Mitch Gilfillan ’02. “PND develops young students who are intellectually distinguished, morally courageous, and compassionate in the service of becoming impactful ‘agents of change’ for the world.”

The experience you will have at Peoria Notre Dame is one that will provide you with a genuine community of support.

“The community of Peoria Notre Dame truly seemed like it wanted me to succeed,” says Frankie Boley ’16. “I wanted to be involved in every way that I could in high school, and my teachers and advisors fully supported it. It was a place that gave me a good education to prepare me for college along with lifelong friends.”

“Every club and activity I have participated in has taught me new skills and insights that cannot be learned in a classroom setting.”
