About Notre Dame

Principal Welcome


Welcome to Notre Dame of De Pere! Whether you are a current school family or considering joining our school family, we are glad you are here.

The strong partnerships between our school staff, parents, and the parishes of St. Francis Xavier and St. Mary are at the very core of the outstanding Catholic education provided at Notre Dame of De Pere. Together we lay the foundation for students on their path to becoming future leaders of the Catholic faith and the greater community. 

Mrs. Molly Mares, Principal

Notre Dame of De Pere is proud of its longstanding tradition of academic excellence. We believe that the partnership between our staff and our families is an essential component of each student’s success. We utilize these partnerships to meet the needs of each individual and cultivate greater community connections for the benefit of all. We know that it takes a village to raise a child, and we are proud to help create that supportive environment for each of our students and families.  

In the Fall of 2020, Notre Dame of De Pere moved into its new home at 137 S. Superior Street. This address is inspired by the Bible verse Luke 1:37, “For nothing shall be impossible with God.” The spirit of determination and unwavering faith in this verse so perfectly represents our school culture. 

Our innovative, inspiring new building has allowed us to continue to uphold the strengths of our programming while also developing new student opportunities. The design of the building gives each developmental level its own identity and space while also affording us the opportunity for cross-grade level collaboration. Many of the spaces in our school are designed for flexible use ranging from traditional instruction to student collaboration. Our Prayer Room offers a space for quiet prayer and reflection for classes to visit as a part of their regular school day. We are also in the process of growing MakerSpace and STEM programming. It is truly an exciting time to be a part of our school community.
