Notre Dame Academy Offers $58,500 in Scholarships to Incoming Pandas

Notre Dame Academy has offered academic scholarships totaling $58,500 to 24 incoming freshmen based on their outstanding performance on NDA’s High-School Placement Test (HSPT), which they took in December 2020. 

Due to the generosity of the Sisters of Notre Dame and other benefactors, Notre Dame Academy awards several academic scholarships to the top HSPT performers each year. The scholarships range from $2,500 to $7,500. This year, NDA offered nine renewable academic-excellence scholarships to students who scored in the 97-, 98-, and 99-percentile on the HSPT and 24 benefactor scholarships based on academic performance. 

Notre Dame Academy is committed to its mission of educating women to make a difference in the world and offers a comprehensive tuition-assistance program that is available to prospective and current NDA families. Notre Dame Academy provided more than $1 million in financial assistance during the 2019-20 school year.

“At Notre Dame Academy, we are a community of lifelong learners with a strong commitment to academic excellence,” Notre Dame Academy President Laura Koehl said. “In the tradition of the Sisters of Notre Dame, we are dedicated to ensuring an education that is accessible to all young women. We do this through scholarships and grants, our unique work-study program, and by maintaining an affordable tuition.”
