Support Us

As a private school we must fund our operations entirely through tuition and the charity of others. Can your time, talent, or treasure help our ministry?

To ensure excellence in education and keep tuition accessible at Notre Dame School, we engage in a variety of major fundraising efforts. All families benefit from these activities as they bridge the gap between our actual cost to educate each child and the tuition we assess families.


Donate your time and talent to help us be our best. Parents and grandparents are always welcome.

Annual Fund: Students 4 Students

Instead of selling wrapping paper or magazines, our student-led letter-writing campaign sees 100% of donor contributions supporting our school.
