Authentic Community

Finding your way during high school years is not always easy, even more if you moved to live in France and have a different culture and language. New culture, new language, new school, new environment, new friends. 

At Notre-Dame International High School we are aware of these challenges. We have created a favorable environment so that our students can acclimatize, grow, develop their abilities, make long-lasting friends and take part of a community. 

Even if you join a larger community of about 3000 students on our campus, our classes are small to keep a family dimension and give outstanding individual attention. 

Everything is done with the community here: the students live and study together. The returning students guide their new classmates. Teachers help students to grow beyond the classroom and supervise students’ clubs and projects.

Plan a Successful Future

Enrolling in the best universities, shaping your professional plans… everything starts here. We set the academic bar high to enable our students to have a bright future.

Our blend of exceptional and caring teachers, AP classes and high academic standards create the best study environment to succeed and acess world-class universities.

We provide French classes at all levels, from beginner to advanced, as well as enrichment classes taught in French by French teachers.

Travel to France to meet your new classmates coming from all over the world and improve your French language skills while you upgrade your academic profile.

When they're rooted in a NDIHS education, students are ready to take on any challenge

My daughter had the opportunity to go for one semester to Notre-Dame. By far, one of the best experiences for her and all our family. We made new friends, who became family. I definitely recommend this experience for any student who wants to experience a unique time in Europe.

Georgina M. (mother)

I attended during the first year of the school. It was my first opportunity leaving the US and I had such an amazing experience with the close-knit professors and I am friends with my international classmates to this day ! A quintessential French town near Paris surrounds you and you will feel nostalgic the minute you leave.

Geena-Louise B. (student)

Thank you to all of you, we are so happy to knowing NACEL and Notre-Dame International High School, we felt really appreciated for everything which being well organized for us. The best!

Jenny Y. (mother)

We are thankful that she had this opportunity and are very happy to see her growth. We will plan for Raquel’s younger sister to attend NDIHS in a couple of years.

After more than six months I know that my feeling was right and this experience will be with me, unforgettable. I have been in boarding schools before, but only here I really understood how small this world is. How close we are to each other. What a family we are here. When I’m back at my country I even talk with my friends about this school using a word Home! As it is. This boarding school is my life now.
