Notre Dame does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, creed, color, or national and ethnic origin in administration of educational policies, scholarship programs, athletic, or other school-administered programs. We welcome students who are not Catholic, although parents and students must understand that participation in Catholic religious instruction, school activities, and community service related to the Catholic identity of the school is mandatory.



Tuition is established annually by the School Board and approved by the Parish Finance Council. Tuition and school fees are determined in the spring of each year. The School Board supports a tuition rate for parishioners and a premium tuition rate for non-parishioners.

In addition to tuition, each student is assessed a fee for technology and educational materials. 



Timely tuition payments are crucial for managing the cash flow of the school’s annual budget.


In order to make Catholic education available to those who recognize its value, a limited scholarship program is available to assist families who cannot afford the full tuition. Parents needing assistance should fill out the Grant and Aid application on FACTS.
