Tuition and Financial Aid

Affording A Notre Dame Prep Education

We want anyone who desires a Notre Dame Prep faith-based, college-preparatory education to receive it. Watch this video with NDP Finance Director Lisa Johnston and see how NDP can work for your family.


Catholic families must provide proof that they are registered, active, and participating in their Catholic parishes. A parish verification form is required for the discounted tuition rate.

Regular Tuition Rate- $20,000 for non-Catholics
Practicing Catholic Tuition Rate - $16,850 (You must provide a Parish Verification Form to pay this tuition rate)

  • Payment plans are being adjusted for next school year to align with the ESA calendar and will begin on July 15th. While we offer payment plans for family convenience, tuition is a full-year commitment upon which the school relies. Payment options are: 

  •  1-pay (July 15) * 
    *Families who prepay for the entire year on or before July 15, will receive a discount of 2% on their tuition. 
  • 2-pay (July 15, December 15) 
  • 4-pay (July 15, October 15, January 15, April 15) 
  • 10-pay (July-April) 
  • For more information contact Benny Mazariegos in our Finance Office,

To ensure that we are assisting families in need of financial aid, both short-term or long-term, we have created an internal scholarship committee to review applications and award scholarships.

We have a set of criteria that will be necessary before applying for NDP financial aid. This needs to be done each year.

  1. An application through Catholic Education Arizona (CEA) will need to be completed. This allows a third party to review financial needs.
  2. At least one other application to another Student Tuition Organization (STO) will need to be completed. For a complete list of STOs visit:
  3. You must attend a scholarship coaching session from any Student Tuition Organization such as Catholic Education Arizona, Arizona Tuition Connection or Institute for Better Education. We hold sessions on campus and STOs hold them both in-person and virtually.
  4. Your student(s) must be in good standing in academics and behavior.
  5. Your student(s) and/or family must be engaged in some way in the life of our school.

The NDP application can be found below. The deadline to apply is May 31 for July reimbursements. Families can apply anytime throughout the year if their financial situation changes.

The Glenn Family

We decided 15 years ago that Notre Dame was the only place we wanted our firstborn to go to high school. The small class sizes and community kept us coming back! We have three kids who are NDP graduates, and our youngest daughter is now a freshman here as well.

Meet The Glenn Family

The Glenn family has been part of the NDP community for more than 15 years. 

Greg and Michelle have sent all four of their children to NDP starting with Quinton '10, Sydney '12, Haydon '18 and their youngest daughter, Parker, is set to graduate in '25. 

The three eldest children utilized the various educational pathways at NDP to find success not only in their careers, but also in their lives. There was no question, the Glenn family would send their youngest to NDP as well, as they saw firsthand the benefits. 

"We always knew sending our kids to NDP was our most important investment. Now, watching them succeed in life, we are even more sure of that! We are so thankful to NDP!" Michelle said.
