Admissions Process

Thank you for your interest in Ecole Notre Dame des Victoires. We look forward to meeting you and your child and introducing you to the Notre Dame des Victoires community.

For Kindergarten, children must be five years old by September 1st and meet the minimum requirements.

We encourage you to attend Family and Class Masses or attend some of the many school activities. You may request a list of upcoming school events from the office. Participating in these activities will give you a flavor for the NDV community as well as allow you to meet NDV parents and ask them questions you may have about the school.
