NDP Wins Two Regional Awards for Workplace Quality and Service

Notre Dame Preparatory School (NDP) recently received two regional awards recognizing the school’s quality work environment and service mission:

  • For the eighth consecutive year—and each year since the program’s inception—NDP was named among The Baltimore Sun’s Top Workplaces. In particular, the school received special recognition in the area of “meaningfulness,” which is the second time in the last four years that NDP was celebrated for this quality. NDP placed 4th among 25 mid-size employers.
  •  NDP’s Camp Umoja, a summer camp for Baltimore City youth, was honored at the 44th Annual Mayor’s Business Recognition Awards. This award is given annually to those organizations which have demonstrated significant leadership and service for a better Baltimore and have committed resources to improving the quality of life in Baltimore City. Since its founding in 1985, approximately 3,300 campers and 1,650 volunteer counselors have been involved in Camp Umoja.

“These two honors speak to two essential components of Notre Dame Prep: our people and our mission,” says Sister Patricia McCarron, SSND, Ph.D., headmistress. “Our faculty and staff’s passion and commitment to our students is exemplary, and our school’s commitment to the practice of justice brings deep meaning to our mission to educate young women to transform the world!”

Founded in 1873, Notre Dame Preparatory School is a Catholic, independent, college preparatory school for approximately 800 girls in grades 6-12.  The School Sisters of Notre Dame sponsor the school, which is dedicated to educating girls to become young women who will transform the world.

School Sisters of Notre Dame in Japan have reported they are fine after Typhoon Jebi struck earlier this week and from the earthquake that shook Hokkaido Island. They conveyed minor damage to homes and schools, and a few people with injuries from broken glass and falling objects. The earthquake paralyzed the northern island of Japan, and our SSND sisters are located in the southern central island.

Please continue to pray for all who have suffered from these, and other natural disasters here in our country and around the world.
