Financial Aid Assessment

It is the hope of Notre Dame Academy that all who seek Catholic education for their children are able to realize that goal regardless of their financial situation. We are committed to providing financial aid to our students and families to the very best of our ability. Tuition assistance for students in grades K-8 is available on a needs basis. Funds are set aside to assist parishioner and non-parisioner families. 

Notre Dame Academy uses a nationally recognized service, TADS, to process financial aid applications. TADS applies standardized criteria to determine to what extent each family needs assistance to pay for one year’s tuition. TADS provides a framework through which household need can be measured fairly and equitably. 

The TADS Financial Aid Worksheet below, is designed to assist in completing the application. Most schools in the Archdiocese use this confidential service to assist clergy and school personnel administer financial aid to families.

Application Information

Applications for tuition assistance may be completed online at http://www.mytads.com/ or mailed directly to TADS**. The $34 processing fee is made payable to TADS. Failure to pay the processing fee may delay the evaluation.
