An Investment in Your Child’s Future

Investing in a private school education is one of the most important decisions you will make with and on behalf of your child. The long-term benefits of a Notre Dame education far outweigh your up-front investment. Notre Dame graduates are highly regarded by admissions officers throughout the nation, with over 90% of our students getting into their first or second choice colleges. In addition, our students earn millions of dollars in college scholarships and financial assistance every year, making tuition at Notre Dame recoverable through reduced college costs. 

An Affordable Education


Thanks to our generous alumni and friends, Notre Dame is able to award 60% of our students with financial aid and/or scholarships each year. The average financial aid currently given to junior high students is $2,071, and the average financial aid currently given to high school students (grades 9-12) is $3,129. Families who wish to be considered for financial aid must apply each year their son or daughter attends Notre Dame HS.


Following is the tuition cost for the 2020-21 school year:


7th – 8th  grade $5,995

9th – 12th grade $8,995

Notre Dame High School is pleased to offer the following discounts: 

NDHS Teachers- 85% off

NDHS Staff- 50% off

Catholic School Teachers- 75% off


We are deeply appreciative of all of our parent volunteers and the contribution of their time and talent through the parental commitment program.  Their efforts directly affect the bottom line at Notre Dame, helping the school to save on overhead expenses and enabling us to pass down the savings to you.


There are additional opportunities for families to utilize to reduce their tuition payments.  Using SCRIP for tuition credits and inviting others to join our school community through our Crusader Ambassador Program, are some examples.  


  • Through the Crusader Ambassador Referral program, families are awarded $500 in tuition credit for every new student referred to our school.  To learn additional details about this program, click here.


  • SCRIP is a fundraising program that sells gift cards for various local and national retailers. Not only does Notre Dame earn a percentage on every card sold, but currently enrolled families also earn tuition credit. This program is an excellent way for parents, alumni, and friends of Notre Dame to help raise funds for our school programs with no time, effort or financial commitments.  To learn more, click here.

Tuition Payment Plan

Notre Dame offers three different tuition payment plan options through the FACTS tuition and management program.  Tuition bills are mailed in June. Upon receiving your tuition bill, families log into their FACTS account to select one of the following payment plans:


  • Full Payment Plan: The full balance must be paid by July 1, 2020.


  • Semester Payment Plan: 50% of the balance is due by July 15, 2020, and the balance paid in full by January 15, 2020. There is no fee related to this plan.


  • Ten Month Payment Plan: The balance is divided over 10 equal monthly payments (July 2020 through April 2021) via an automatic withdrawal from a checking or savings account. There is a $50 fee for enrolling in this payment plan.


You will have the ability to manage your account and have access to account managers to answer your questions 24/7 via the FACTS secure website. Updating your personal information, checking your account balance, and adding bank information can be done easily online.
