Enrollment hits 10-year high at NDCL

With enthusiasm, energy and excitement, 731 students began the new school year last week ready to “restore the roar” to Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin’s campus of faith and learning, according to the Munson Township-based school.

According to Director of Admissions Michael Suso, the school’s highest enrollment in a decade includes 179 freshmen and 16 transfer students. Students hail from seven northeastern Ohio counties, including Lake (42 percent), Geauga (32 percent) and Cuyahoga (23 percent).

On the first two days of school, students met their new teachers and participated in orientation sessions with administrators, counselors, campus ministers and student leaders. In his remarks to the students, President Michael Bates highlighted several enhancements to the campus, including new lighting and ceiling tiles in all classrooms and corridors, renovations, new signage and the ongoing construction at Lion Stadium with the addition of a concession stand, spirit shop and permanent restrooms.

“If the spirit shared by our students and faculty on the opening days is any indication, this promises to be a great year,” commented Principal Joseph A. Waler.

Starting Monday, the Student Activities Board (SAB) and their advisers lead “Restore the Roar Week,” which included themed dress downs, lunchtime treats and spirit activities to kick off the 2021-2022 school year.
