Tuition Grades K-8

The Board of Directors is keenly aware of their obligation to ensure that Notre Dame Schools provide the best of Catholic education for your children while maintaining affordability. At its regular meeting on Friday, February 3rd, the Board of Directors approved the tuition amounts for students enrolled at Notre Dame Schools for the 2023-2024 school year.

Balancing considerations of affordability while maintaining the highest standards for excellence in academics and extra-curricular programming are central to tuition pricing.  The chief reason we raise funds for the annual fund, for Giving Day, for the Mane Event, and through LionSGO is to address the reality that the cost to educate each student is more than $2000 on average higher than the cost the schools charge in tuition.  This year, inflationary concerns and ensuring that every effort is made to remain competitive in attracting and retaining the highest quality faculty and staff are the key reasons tuition increases are necessary.

Our Notre Dame Schools leadership team is also committed to ensuring that every student who is currently enrolled remains enrolled next year notwithstanding the tuition increase. Our Tuition Assistance Committee exists to partner with you as best possible. If any concerns emerge, you are strongly encouraged to contact Mrs. Barbara Williams, Director of Admissions at 440-279-1129. Our ability to offer tuition assistance is the direct result of the generosity of so many in building a strong endowment, and a commitment by our Board to a financial aid budget that continues to grow each year. Thank you to the generosity of those who gainfully support this endowment, and who ultimately help to make assistance for those in need readily possible. If you wish to apply for tuition assistance, the online FACTS Grant and Aid application must be completed by March 31, 2023.

The National Blue Ribbon Notre Dame Schools will continue to provide a transformational learning experience with rigorous curriculum, exceptional programming, creative and collaborative learning opportunities in a safe physical and emotional environment. Thank you for partnering with us in our mission, to educate leaders who transform the world, as Jesus did, by living truth in love. May you continue to know readily the blessings of our good and provident God.
