Tuition AssistanceNotre Dame is always working to maintain a reasonable tuition rate. All our efforts are concentrated on this goal. We want catholic education available to as many young men and women as possible. 2016-2017 Tuition Tuition for the 2016-17 school year is $13,950.00 which includes an activity fee, plus $150 fundraising fee. This is payable in 12 monthly installments. There are tuition reductions for second and third children concurrently at Notre Dame. Tuition payments are made in twelve equal monthly installments beginning in May. Tuition payments may also be made in two lump sums. These payments must be kept up to date. A tuition reduction of $300 is offered for accounts paid in full by June 15 for the following school year. Tuition may be paid by credit card (Visa or Mastercard). Financial Assistance Each year, Notre Dame raises a limited amount of funds, which the school then uses to finance a Grant-in-Aid Program. These awards are need-based. In order to give as many students as possible the opportunity for some financial aid, individual grants are usually limited to approximately the amount of one monthly tuition payment. Each award is for one year only. Families must reapply for Grant-in-Aid funding annually. For ninth grade applicants, applications for 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 any financial aid award until early May. Applications are returned to FACTS using your most recent tax return. A fee of $30.00 must accompany the application. A link to the on-line application can be found by clicking here. Returning families must also re-apply for financial aid on an annual basis. Applications are available for current families beginning in January. Sallie Mae Partnership Notre Dame has entered into an agreement with the Sallie Mae Corporation to provide low interest educational loans to qualified families. Applications for this assistance are available in the main office or on-line. Further information can be obtained on Sallie Mae's website.
