Funding Your NDA Education
Notre Dame Academy is committed to supporting families and students from a range of socioeconomic backgrounds as they navigate affording Catholic education.
We understand and appreciate the financial commitment families undertake in deciding to send their children to NDA. NDA is the grateful recipient of generations of generosity that has helped to keep the school within the financial reach of all families. The cost to educate a student at NDA currently stands at nearly $11,000. Thanks to the generous support of benefactors and the forward-thinking stewardship of prior generations, the tuition charged to families is considerably less.
As a Catholic school, we work closely with the Diocese of Green Bay’s parishes to keep NDA accessible for all.
We look forward to working with your family as, together, we nurture our students and continue to build upon our tradition of Catholic education excellence.
Please email AffordNDA@notredameacademy.com if you have any questions.

Tuition Grant Program
The goal of NDA’s tuition grant program is to provide assistance to families who show a demonstrated financial need. In helping to cover a portion of the cost of tuition for qualifying families, we remain committed to making a Catholic education attainable for all who wish to attend. Currently, close to 50 percent of our student body receives financial assistance with more than $2,600,000 awarded annually.
Often the terms “grants” and “scholarships” are used interchangeably. NDA only uses grants to describe support offered by NDA. Scholarship often implies a merit component, which we do not offer. NDA offers need-based financial aid only.
Tuition grants/named scholarships are based upon a family’s demonstrated financial need as determined by the software program NDA uses that is similar to many colleges and universities.
The tuition grant process is confidential and begins February 1, 2022. Applications are due Friday, April 15, 2022. The application will be made available in January 2022. We strongly encourage all families needing assistance to apply.
Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP)
Notre Dame Academy participates in the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP), also known as the School Voucher Program. This program allows eligible students who reside in Wisconsin, meet state requirements and are selected by the program to attend Catholic school tuition-free. The application process for the WPCP is described at this link.
Scholarships Requiring an Application
NDA is able to offer two additional need-based scholarship opportunities that require an application through the generosity of Robert M. Duerr, Jr. and the Leo & Fran Frigo NDBA Scholarship Funds.

Click here for more information about the Leo & Fran Frigo NDBA Scholarship Fund.
Both applications are due on Friday, April 15, 2022.
Note: Some Green Bay Diocesan elementary schools have school-administered scholarships. Please contact your elementary school for more information.
Wisconsin Tax Credit
The Wisconsin Department of Revenue - Schedule PS (Private School) allows parents to deduct up to $10,000 per student in grade 9-12 at a Catholic high school, regardless of income. Parents with students in grades K-8 at a Catholic grade school may deduct up to $4,000. If a student moves from grade 8 to high school in the same tax year, parents may claim both tuition expenses up to $10,000.
Paying Tuition with Scrip Funds
Most Green Bay Diocesan Catholic grade schools use Scrip, a tuition reimbursement incentive program. Some schools allow you to, once you hit your minimum, transfer your funds to NDA to help offset the cost of high school tuition. Please contact your Catholic grade school for more information. Note: NDA does not have a Scrip Program.
