Financial Aid

2022-2023 Tuition

At Notre Dame High School it is our commitment to make an ND education possible for families from socioeconomically diverse backgrounds.   Each year we have been able to award over $1,000,000 in need-based aid.

The Financial Aid Office works to assist families for whom the cost of private Catholic school tuition is the only barrier to attendance. Although we cannot fully meet each family’s financial need, we will work collaboratively with families. All financial aid awards are based upon a family’s demonstrated financial need (as determined by FACTS).  ND does offer academic and performing arts scholarships.  ND does not offer full-tuition awards or athletic awards of any kind.

All financial aid awards are based on a family’s demonstrated need, and there is no expectation of re-payment. In order to receive financial aid in subsequent years, it is important to note that financial aid is based primarily on a family’s continued demonstrated need for funds. Families must re-apply for financial aid each year.

For ninth-grade applicants, applications for financial aid are available online beginning in October. If submitted by the November deadline, families are notified on or about December 15 of any financial aid award. If a financial aid application is completed after the November deadline, families may not be notified of a financial aid award until early May. The Financial Aid Application is done online through our partner company FACTS. Your most recent tax return and W-2 Forms, in addition to a $30.00 fee, are required to complete the application.

Returning families must also re-apply for financial aid on an annual basis. Applications are available for current families beginning in January.
