Notre Dame Cristo Rey High School provides an affordable, Catholic, college preparatory education to families with limited income. All students must come from low to moderate income families who are committed to providing a challenging education to their children, but might otherwise be unable to do so. We approach our mission by educating every student who comes into our care with a unique academic and professional opportunity that sets them apart for the rest of their life.
Tuition for the 2018-2019 school year is $12,500 which includes all academic and athletic fees. With the help from our Corporate Work Study Program
and our Office of Mission Advancement
families are only responsible for $3,300 as tuition for the school year.
A limited number of scholarships are available to students enrolling at Notre Dame Cristo Rey as freshmen. These scholarships are based on various criteria including academic performance, HSPT (Entrance Exam) results, need, and other criteria.Financial Aid and Scholarship Information
NDCR offers financial assistance to students whose families demonstrate significant financial need. Each family's financial need is reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Based on available funds and the number of applicants each year, NDCR makes every effort to provide assistance to families who need help.
All families applying to NDCR must complete a financial assessment regardless of requesting financial assistance or not.
NDCR uses FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment
to determine the amount of financial aid given to families. We encourage families to apply online at: FACTS
If you prefer to complete the assessment by mail, you can pick up a paper form in our school at 303 Haverhill Street in Lawrence, MA. FACTS applications and all supporting documentation must be mailed directly to Facts Grant and Aid Assessment. Please use the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment self-addressed envelope provided in the application package to mail the following information:
- Signed and completed paper application (not applicable if applying online);
- A non-refundable application fee;
- Copies of your most recent tax forms including all supporting tax schedules; of the parent claiming the student as dependent;
- Copies of your most recent W-2 form for both you and your spouse; and
- Copies of supporting documentation for Social Security Income, Welfare, Child Support, Food Stamps, Workers’ Compensation, and TANF.
Families are required to reapply for financial assistance each year and every attempt is made to provide ongoing assistance to returning students that demonstrate continued need.
** Please remember that the school cannot provide financial assistance unless the FACTS assessment has been completed and verified **
