Progress 2019: Notre Dame Regional High School Provides Real-World Experiences to Students
Tuesday, May 14, 2019
Notre Dame Regional High School provides numerous ways for students to be formed by the school's motto: "Enter to Learn, Leave to Serve."
The high school is proud to be a STREAM school -- as identified by the National Catholic Education Association -- providing a challenging science, technology, math and arts curriculum through the lens of faith. This designation exemplifies a commitment to teaching both Catholic Church doctrine and living a life representative of Church values.
One of the innovative programs recently started at Notre Dame is Dog Fight, the school's version of Shark Tank, in which business law students face head-on a panel of experts at a local bank boardroom, gaining valuable real-life experience.
Service-learning opportunities such as mission trips and service days are available, as well. One of these opportunities is an annual service trip through the Franciscan Volunteer program, a cooperative effort with two Catholic high schools in New York. Through this program, students engage in various service projects in Cape Girardeau and/or New York for seven days, working in soup kitchens, food pantries and homeless shelters.
Opportunities like these shape Notre Dame students into educated, well-rounded, caring people with an interest in seeking out ways to positively impact their community.
