Begin Here. Succeed Anywhere.

RCDS Alumna Hannah poses smiling with her high school diploma.

"RCDS teachers encouraged us to immerse ourselves in the learning so we could understand it on a deeper level. I embrace this mindset as I enter my freshman year at Notre Dame. Many of my friends describe how hard the academic transition has been for them. For me, this step is just a continuation of my learning and 
it all started at RCDS."

– Hannah Reynolds,
RCDS Class of 2015;
