Tuition Assistance

Notre Dame High School awards tuition assistance using a needs-based evaluation (FACTS Grant & Aid online application) for families who could not otherwise afford to attend. Notre Dame does not offer academic or athletic scholarships. All TSSAA rules and policies are in effect. Families are required to apply each school year and submit the required tax documentation by the deadline in order to be considered for tuition assistance. There is a $35 application fee due at the time of application submission. Catholic families must also submit a completed Parish Affiliation Form signed by their pastor, in order to apply for tuition assistance.
