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, over 50 % 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, 2023. Applications are due Thursday, April 20, 2023.
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 (for incoming families only)
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.
Both applications are due on Thursday, April 20, 2023.
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.
