Grades 1-7

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

Students at École Notre Dame des Victoires (NDV) come from different and far-reaching neighborhoods throughout San Francisco, as well as from various cities within the greater Bay Area. The administration and the faculty welcome a diverse student population thus creating a rich academic environment for all its students. NDV does not discriminate on the basis of race, national and/or ethnic origin, sex, or disability in its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic programs, or other school-administered programs.

We encourage you to attend some of the many school activities, which are offered virtually this year due to COVID-19.  In particular, our annual fundraiser, the Bal de Paris will be a spectacular online event based on the works of Jules Verne with raffle and live art auction benefitting NDV.   Attending the Bal de Paris, or any of the many events will give you a flavor for NDV’s singular community.
