Scholarships & Financial Assistance
While we do all we can to keep tuition costs down, we realize that a private school education is still out of reach for some families. Scholarships and financial assistance help to bridge the gap for more than 90% of our upper school students and nearly 30% of lower school students. In fact, the Academy grants more than $700,000 in scholarship and aid support annually for upper and lower school students.
The only way we are able to go above and beyond for our families is through the generosity of alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends. We are grateful to all those who have chosen to make a Notre Dame education and experience possible for deserving students.
There are many ways that you can contribute. Gifts of any size to the Fund for Notre Dame will support our financial aid budget. In addition, a $10,000 philanthropic commitment over four years will allow us to provide a $2,500 Merit Scholarship annually to one student.
If you’d like to make a lasting impact, you may consider creating a Named Scholarship, which can be a special way to honor a beloved family member or friend. With a gift of $50,000 or more (payable over five years), your endowed fund will support students at Notre Dame in perpetuity. If you are interested in establishing a Named Scholarship, or have questions about how you can make a life-changing impact, please contact Lauren Marquis in the Advancement Office at (978) 649-7611, Ext. 321 or at [email protected].
Thank you to all those who have committed to making a Notre Dame education a reality for talented students regardless of their financial means. Students seeking tuition assistance are encouraged to apply for a scholarship by the priority deadline of December 31st.
