Although our campus remains closed, summer at Notre Dame is still open. This summer Notre Dame academic courses will be running on a virtual platform.  All Classes will meet virtually each day.  Notre Dame teachers will provide the instruction in virtual meets and instruction will include whole class and small group instruction. Students who partake in these summer opportunities will have an opportunity to receive full credit for their coursework. Those students interested in the non credit courses will receive an academic experience that will keep them sharp and prepared to begin the 2020-2021 school year.
