Scholarship Giving

Scholarship funds are critical to Notre Dame's financial stability. These permanently invested funds provide annual income for tuition assistance, operations and special awards. These funds reduce tuition dependency, lend increased stability to institutional financial planning and provide bottom-line support for Notre Dame's mission of providing a college preparatory education to students of all backgrounds.

The gap between the tuition versus actual cost of an NDHS education is $3,100


Receiving tuition assistance often plays a large role in a family's decision to enroll. In fact, 42% of students rely on tuition assistance each year. A fully endowed scholarship will cover the cost of full tuition at Notre Dame annually and is an opportunity to perpetuate the honor or memory of a special individual. Named Scholarships and Awards may also be given as an outright gift or pledged over a specific period of time. They are often made in honor or memory of an individual close to Notre Dame.

General Scholarship Fund

Gifts to the General Scholarship Fund ensure that Notre Dame High School can annually provide tuition assistance to as many students as possible. Families apply and are granted assistance through our FACTS Grant Aid and Assistance program.

Class Scholarships

In 2010, Notre Dame launched a class scholarship program in conjunction with alumna class reunions to additionally celebrate each graduating class! By establishing an endowed scholarship in your class's name, you are leaving your legacy for future ND students.

Blessed Theresa Scholarship

Notre Dame High School awards the Blessed Theresa Scholarship of $5,000 to three incoming freshmen. Applicants must meet specific criteria in the following three areas: test scores, GPA and service. For more information see "Freshman Scholarships" under Tuition & Assistance in the Admissions section.

Named Scholarships

A named scholarship can be established at Notre Dame High School with a gift of $20,000 or more. An established named scholarship can have specific recipient criteria that is honored each year prior to awarding the student scholarship. Named scholarships provide important financial assistance to young women that might not otherwise be financially able to attend Notre Dame. Typically, the principal of the scholarship remains intact, with the award amount reflecting the interest income. If you are interested in establishing your own named scholarship, please contact Mark Bayens, President,

Established Scholarships

In addition to the financial aid process, Notre Dame High School offers several need-based scholarships. Many of these have been established by or in honor of a specific individual or family with close ties to Notre Dame. Unless otherwise noted, scholarship recipients are selected by the President of Notre Dame High School in consultation with the Director of Finance. Contributions can be made to any of the existing scholarships below.
