Benefitting Students of Today and Tomorrow

Change a student's life. Create opportunity for academic and spiritual growth. Join us for an elegant evening of good friends, dining and funding the dreams of current and future Pilots.

Together, we raised a record $95,000 at Dream Flight 2017, allowing more students to say “yes” to an SJND education. We seek support from our SJND community to help us meet the increased needs of our families. The benefit is generously hosted by the Kelly family, so all sponsorships, donations and ticket sales directly provide young men and women in need with scholarships and tuition assistance.

  • 30% of SJND are first generation college students
  • 99% of the Class of 2018 attended college
  • More than 50% of SJND students receive tuition assistance to support their journey
  • "Graduates of Catholic Schools are more likely to vote, earn higher wages, more committed to service..." - The Alliance for Catholic Education at the University of Notre Dame

2018 Christi Matri Award

SJND is proud to present the 2018 Christi Matri Award for Outstanding Service at Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School to Kerry O'Hara '70 Plain.

The Christi Matri Award was established in 2017 to honor an individual who through their service to SJND, has exemplified the values of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur and the Brothers of Mary (Marianists), unifying our school community in the spirit of family nurtured by Mary, the mother of Christ.
