Information for New Upper Level Families

Welcome to Notre Dame Prepartory Schools Upper Level!

To make your transition to high school as easy as possible, here is all the information you will need to prepare for your first day of school. Please read the information below and the attached files (at right) carefully, as they address many topics. (Please note that your mailed admission packet may include some handouts which are not attached below.)

Some Important Information:

Course Scheduling:   Course scheduling for your daughter will take place on March 29 or March 30, 2017.  Please choose the day most convenient for you; click on one of the links below. Each program begins at 3:30 p.m. promptly with a presentation on curriculum and scheduling procedures. At that time, faculty members will inform you and your daughter of her course and phase assignments, and assist her in choosing an elective. Please bring the elective sheet with you on scheduling day with your daughter's selections.    

Tuition: The Board of Trustees has set a tuition rate of $19,400 for the 2017-2018 school year. Recognizing that tuition is a considerable expense for NDP families, we offer two payment options:

  • Full payment of tuition and fees are due by August 1, 2017. Checks should be made payable to Notre Dame Preparatory School (NDP).
  • A payment plan that will be debited from your checking, savings, or credit card account, beginning July 2017. FACTS Tuition Management administers this program, which costs $46 per account for a 10-month payment plan, or $20 for a one or two payment plan. FACTS also offers a Peace of Mind tuition insurance program for a $17annual fee. Information about FACTS will be mailed in late May 2017 with your tuition statement for the 2017-2018 school year. If you have questions, please call LeighAnn Schneider at (410-825-6202, ext. 1008).

Enrollment Contract: Please complete the enclosed enrollment contract along with a $750 non-refundable registration fee, in the enclosed blue envelope marked Admission Office. To assure that you meet the 4 p.m. March 3, 2017 deadline, please mail your contract, reservation card and deposit no later than March 1, 2017.

Placement Tests:  Your daughter should plan to take the modern language, English and math placement tests on Saturday, March 11, beginning promptly at 8:00 a.m. and ending at 12-12:30p.m. New students are required to sit for the Language Placement exam. All entering students are required to take the English test. Eighth grade students currently enrolled in Algebra I or II or Geometry who want to be considered for placement into Geometry, Algebra II or beyond in ninth grade must take a Math Placement Test. 

BYOL Program:  At right is information about the Bring Your Own Laptop (BYOL) Program and the Laptop Information Sheet, which outlines all of the details of our laptop program.

Uniforms: You will be able to order your daughter’s uniforms on scheduling evenings.  Representatives from Flynn and O’Hara Uniform Company will be here from 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on both evenings to take measurements and accept orders.  They require a 50% deposit on uniform orders.

Trading Post:  Trading Post will be open on March 29 and March 30 from 3:30 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
