Tuition, Financial Aid & Scholarships
Catholic education is an investment.
We understand that Catholic education is an investment for our families. Providing students access to a world-class educational experience at Notre Dame, regardless of financial means, is a priority for us no matter the circumstances. We offer need-based financial aid to make the investment in a private education manageable. We look forward to helping you through this process.
Tuition Rates for 2023-24
Notre Dame Preparatory School (9-12) $19,800
Notre Dame Middle School (6-8) $17,700
Notre Dame Lower School (Pre-K - 5) $13,800
The Board of Trustees and the administration are committed to sound fiscal management so that we maintain that standard of excellence and, at the same time, set the cost of tuition reasonably and with great care each year. The Board of Trustees announces tuition for the following school year in mid-January. In addition to tuition, families can expect to see annual fees for academic materials and a device to be used as part of our 1-to-1 program.
Need-Based Financial Aid
We aspire to provide every family the opportunity to attend Notre Dame regardless of its financial background. Enrolling talented, bright and capable students from a variety of experiences and backgrounds is core to Notre Dame's mission: "With God, we form Christian people, upright citizens and academic scholars."
Notre Dame Prep Merit Scholarships
The five scholarship categories are detailed below. Beginning with the incoming Class of 2027, top winners will receive $5,000 for the freshman year, while honorable mention awards will range from $1,000 to $2,500. The Academic Scholarship Award will renew at the same level for the sophomore, junior and senior years provided the student earns a minimum 3.5 unweighted cumulative GPA. All other scholarships also will renew for the final three years provided the student’s academic, attendance and discipline records are all sound. An incoming freshman may apply for just one merit scholarship.
Applicants to Notre Dame Prep will submit their scholarship essay and email their request for a letter of recommendation through the application checklist. All items must be received by Notre Dame by the Dec. 16 admission and scholarship deadlines.* As such, Notre Dame strongly recommends that an applicant request his/her letter of recommendation by no later than Dec. 2.
*Priority consideration will be given to applicants who meet this deadline. Students who apply after the deadline must have all items submitted prior to scheduling their student-parent interview.
Please note: A merit scholarship may not be combined with an alumni award. All awards are posted to student accounts on Sept. 1.
