After the establishment of the University of Notre Dame in Indiana, a group of Holy Cross Brothers traveled to Southern California in the 1940s. In 1941, the Brothers were invited to staff St. Anthony's Parish High School in Long Beach. In 1945, the land at the corner of Riverside and Woodman was purchased for $45,000. In 1947, Notre Dame High School opened as an all boys school with a freshman class of 125 and a faculty of five, four of whom were Holy Cross Brothers.
In 1983-84, Notre Dame began a new era of co-education with the admission of the first female students (66 sophomores and 119 freshmen). This addition created many changes at Notre Dame: the facilities were adjusted to meet new needs, new faculty were hired and the athletic department was expanded to incorporate girls’ sports. This addition also led to the 1987 closing of Corvallis High School in Studio City.
Notre Dame's campus has significantly grown since the Riverside Building was built in 1947. In May 1951, the gymnasium used today was completed. The Woodman Building followed in September 1956. Buildings, such as the five classroom Annex, have come and gone. The Allegretti Building was opened in May 1987 which provided an office complex and classrooms in the area between the Woodman and Riverside Buildings. Most recently, there have been two major classroom buildings built: the Fritz B. Burns Center for Arts and Technology in January 2001 and the Hampton Science Center in January 2007.
