About the School

For more than 100 years, Notre Dame has educated teachers who lead, prepare and transform their students every day.

We understand that education isn't just a job--it's a vocation, that leads to personal fulfillment, professional development and social responsibility.

Notre Dame is the top preparer of initially certified teachers among private colleges in Maryland. We welcome experienced teachers who wish to earn a master's degree, as well as women and men who seek to change their career--in less than a year! Our unique Accelerated Certification in Teaching and 10-month Masters of Arts programs prepare passionate, award-winning educators who have gone on to teach throughout the state, across the country and around the world.

Our flexible programs allow students to attend classes at convenient off-site locations, including Anne Arundel Community College, the Higher Education and Conference Center in Aberdeen (HEAT Center) and the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center (SMHEC), as well as our Charles Street campus.
