A Notre Dame Education



The English Department of Notre Dame High School, in accordance with the Holy Cross educational philosophy that seeks the formation of the whole person, has established a curriculum that produces graduates who are critical and considerate thinkers, speakers, and writers. Grounded in the NDHS Integral Student Outcomes of Educating the Heart and Mind, the English program emphasizes the development of oral and written comprehension, critical thinking skills, and coherence, cogency, and fluency in the expression and communication of ideas as well as provides experiences and activities that will help students become discriminating users of print and non-print media. The English curriculum encourages the intellectual and empathetic development of each student through varied writing tasks, articulate speech, thoughtful decision-making, intellectual risk-taking, and compassionate understanding. Literary, informational, and media texts, selected for excellence in both content and style, promote Catholic social teaching, aesthetic appreciation, multicultural and historical awareness, and analytical evaluation skills.
