Dear Notre Dame Catholic School Community,
I would like to take a moment to share some of the accomplishments our school has enjoyed to this point in the school year. Student enrollment has increased nearly 20%, and we expect that trend to continue. We have also seen a 72% increase in year-to-date fundraising thanks to the tireless efforts of our administrative staff, parent-volunteers and the generosity of community supporters. Enrollment and fundraising were at the top of my priority list when I took on the role of school president this past summer. I am happy to report that we are making significant progress in each category with an eye towards continued growth. And so the work continues.
Today I am very proud to reveal part of our ongoing efforts to make our educational experience an affordable option for all who desire it for their children. The annual tuition rate will be reduced starting in the 2020-2021 academic year. While there is financial risk in reducing our tuition, I feel it is the right thing to do for our school’s families. Please see the school’s web site for the updated Tuition and Fees Schedule. We are also assessing our tuition assistance process to ensure that it efficiently meets the needs of both current and prospective school families.
I hope this news further confirms to you that we are constantly looking for ways to improve the experience for our students, their families and all who want to be a part of Notre Dame Catholic School. If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know. My office door is always open to our school community. Thank you for your continued support and prayers for the success of Notre Dame Catholic School.
God Bless and Go Knights,
Daniel Escobedo ’01
