Approximately 25% of students rely on tuition assistance to attend Notre Dame High School. Gifts to support our tuition assistance program help to maintain our tradition of making a Notre Dame education possible for the most qualified students regardless of their financial circumstances. Tuition assistance also helps ensure that we will continue to be ranked as the most diverse private high school in Santa Clara Valley. 

ThirtyOne Women 

Mary Quilici '75 Aumack and Maria Bellafronto founded ThirtyOne Women in 2011 as a way to help girls from low income families who attend Our Lady of Grace Nativity School afford a Notre Dame High School education. The concept is simple - a group of 30 women committed to giving a fixed amount each month for four years. The outcome - four years of a Notre Dame Catholic education for one young woman who then becomes the center of the circle and the thirty-first woman. The money generated by each group of women covers the costs associated with high school education including tuition, books, uniforms and other fees. The first two recipients of ThirtyOne Women scholarships graduated in June, 2016.
