Archbishop Curley-Notre Dame High School is a private, Roman Catholic high school in the Buena Vista neighborhood of Miami, Florida, United States. It is located and operated by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Miami.


In 1953 the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saint Augustine (which would see on October 7, 1958 the creation of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Miami) under the direction of Bishop Joseph Patrick Hurley would create two new Catholic high schools. Archbishop Curley High School (for boys) and Notre Dame Academy (for girls) were founded in 1953 in Miami, FL. Archbishop Curley high school would initially be administered by diocesan priest from 1953–1959, followed by the Congregation of Holy Cross Brothers from 1960–1970, and again by diocesan priests from 1970 until 1985. Notre Dame Academy was originally administered by the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Saint Augustine from 1953–1959. Then from 1960 - 1981 the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary would administrator Notre Dame Academy.

The two schools merged in 1981 onto the Archbishop Curley High School campus to form coeducational Archbishop Curley-Notre Dame High School. Since 1985 the school has been administered by the Congregation of Christian Brothers.[2]

"At the start of the 1960-61 school year, five black students made the jump from all-black Holy Redeemer, encouraged to do so by nuns. Three male students enrolled at Archbishop Curley, two female students at Notre Dame. The Archdiocese insisted the two schools to keep it low key. In places like Little Rock, Ark., the crucible of desegregation, troops had to be called out to escort nine courageous black teens past a hostile, seething mob."[3]

When reporter Gene Miller was dispatched by The Herald to do a story, Brother Keric Dever, the principal, said: “We are simply opening school. We are not making a fuss about this.”[3]
