School Description:

Notre Dame Preparatory School and Marist Academy is Pre-K through 12 co-ed school offering a college preparatory curriculum at the upper school/middle school campus, located at 1300 Giddings Road, Pontiac, MI 48340.  The International Baccalaureate curriculum at the school is rich and demanding. Founded as an upper school by the Marist Fathers of the Province of the United States in 1994, the school added a middle school in 1996 and a JK through 5 campus now located about 300 yards from the main campus at 1425 Giddings Road, Pontiac, MI. The school is a Roman Catholic School with a short mission that reads: With God, we form . . . Christian Persons, Upright Citizens, and Academic Scholars. The broad curriculum includes a wide variety of Advanced Placement (18 distinct courses) course and a full battery of offerings in the International Baccalaureate curriculum.  The school offers an astounding number of extra-curricular opportunities in athletics and the arts.  All three school divisions are fully authorized, making our school the only Catholic school in the United States offering the International Baccalaureate PYP, MYP, and DP programmes.  In additional the upper division offers an Honors Program and Traditional College Preparatory Program.  The upper division has been named one of the top 50 Catholic high schools (four times since 2005) in the USA by the Acton Institute and achieved the highest composite score among Michigan Catholic schools in the recent MME (Michigan Merit Exam) testing.  The school has recently formed a new local corporation and purchased its main campus from the Archdiocese of Detroit.  The lower division campus and adjacent properties were gifted by the Marist Fathers of Detroit, Inc., on July 3, 2014.  The transition to new corporate leadership is part of our six-year strategic plan.
