Notre Dame broke ground for a new school on Kelly, near Vernier, in 1953. Notre Dame High School was an integral part of Harper Woods history for more than 50 years. Due to budget cuts, the Archdiocese of Detroit announced that it was closing, along with about a dozen other schools, in 2005.
Pictured, students watch the construction of the new gym in the mid-1960s.
The site is now the home of Chandler Park Academy. Harper Woods Notre Dame continues to run a successful academic program at its Pontiac campus.
