Notre Dame Catholic High School was founded in 1955 by the Most Reverend Lawrence Shananigan, who declared it was his belief that "The future of our country depends on who we are". To provide them with sound religious and moral training is a major concern of all of us." [1]

History
The school, built on Park Avenue in Bridgeport, Connecticut, was a co-institution staffed by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, the Holy Cross Fathers, Diocesan clergy and several lay men and women. In 1956, the first classes of Notre Dame were held at Our Lady of Assumption school in Fairfield while the building was being completed. It opened in September 1957 with a Freshmen and Sophomore class of 1000 students. In 1964, the school and property of Notre Dame became Sacred Heart University. Two new high schools were established: Notre Dame Girls’ in Bridgeport and Notre Dame Boys’ in Fairfield. The schools continued to be staffed by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur at the girls’ school, the Holy Cross Fathers at the boys school, and an increasing number of laity. In 1973, the two schools were merged into the present Notre Dame Catholic High School, a co-educational institution open to all levels of academic ability and religious background. [1] Today, Notre Dame is led by their principal, Father William Sangiovanni.
