Tuition assistance is available to students with demonstrated financial need and has no bearing on admission to Notre Dame High School. Tuition Assistance applications for the 2020-2021 school year will be available online through TADS on November 1, 2019.

Notre Dame has an annual non-refundable registration fee of $650 for all students. This year we are pleased to provide a flat Book Rental Fee of $400 for all students, representing a significant savings.
