TEST & APPLY. Register for the High School Placement Test and Complete an Application for Admission

Each student interested in applying to MND is required to take the High School Placement Test

(HSPT). Parents can register their eighth-grade daughter to take the HSPT at any all-girl or co-ed Cincinnati Archdiocesan high school, but we encourage her to take the test at MND. The HSPT is administered on Saturday, November 17, 2018. On the day of the test, if the student would like MND to consider her test results, it is important to mark Mount Notre Dame as a designated school. Good Luck! CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION.


MND offers academic scholarships, merit-based awards and alumnae legacy awards. In the fall, eighth graders can apply online for a variety of scholarships (named and merit), which will have a November 18, 2019 due date. The scholarship application will be available in the fall.

MND also provides tuition assistance through tuition grants and named scholarships. In the fall, parents can visit www.online.factsmgt.com to complete a FACTS application (due November 18, 2019).
