Admission to Notre Dame
Notre Dame begins reviewing applications in November for the following year. Applicants to grades PK to 8, and 10 through 12, will receive their admission decision within one to two school days following the student interview. Applicants to grade 9 will receive their admission decision on Jan. 24, 2020. Because Notre Dame begins enrolling students in late January/early February, families are encouraged to submit their applications before Jan. 17, 2020. Applications will be accepted after that date, with admission offered as space permits. Students who apply for admission to 9th grade after January 17 will be eligible for merit scholarships, provided they have taken the High School Placement Test on Nov. 23 or Dec. 7, 2019. Students who apply for admission to 6th grade after March 6, 2020 will not be eligible for merit scholarships.
