At Notre Dame High School, we model the generosity, humility, and faith of our founders and sponsors, the School Sisters of Notre Dame. The SSND tradition has been, and our vision remains, that a Notre Dame education should be available to all interested and capable students, regardless of their economic status or background.

Notre Dame proudly ranks among the most affordable Catholic all-girls’ high schools in St. Louis. Tuition for the 2017-2018 school year is $11,800. Costs not included in this number are books, uniforms, retreat fees, and iPad. Notre Dame uses FACTS Tuition Management for collection of tuition payments.  New families need to enroll online at https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3fdnc and choose their payment plan.  Existing families will be automatically reenrolled in FACTS and do not need to do anything unless you would like to make a change.  Please contact FACTS customer service if you have any questions at 1-866-441-4637 or Monika Pagano at (314) 544-1015, ext. 1091.  

To meet our objective of making a Notre Dame education affordable to any young woman regardless of her family’s socio-economic background, we are proud to offer tuition assistance through financial aid and scholarships. Through the generosity, kindness, and commitment of our alumnae and benefactors, Notre Dame is able to offer assistance to roughly 30% of our families annually.
