Test & Apply
Entrance Placement Test & Application for Admission                                                                             
Beginning in July, parents can register their eighth-grade daughters to take the High School Placement Test, which takes place on Saturday, November 21. The test can be taken at any all-girl or co-ed Cincinnati Archdiocesan high school, but we encourage her to take the test at MND. Through the school’s website, complete the online test registration and pay the $30 registration fee.  On the day of the test, if the student would like MND to consider her test score, it is important to mark Mount Notre Dame as a designated school.
Eighth graders and parents can complete a simple online Application for Admission. Even is the student takes the HSPT at another school, she should be sure to complete MND’s online Application for Admission. A completed HSPT registration serves as the application for admission to MND.

Scholarships, Awards and Financial Assistance (Optional)
MND offers academic scholarships, merit-based awards and alumnae legacy awards. Eighth graders can apply online for a variety of scholarships (named and merit), which have a November 23, 2020 due date. The scholarship application will be available in the fall. MND also provides tuition assistance through financial aid and named scholarships.  Parents can CLICK HERE to complete a FACTS application (due November 23, 2020). A Tuition Assistance & Scholarship Meeting is held on Tuesday, October 27 at 6:30 PM for interested parents. MND accepts the Ohio EdChoice Scholarship.

MND awards Billiart Scholar Honors Program Scholarships to incoming freshmen who score in the 90th percentile or above, or who score a Cognitive Skills Quotient (CSQ) of 125 or above on the HSPT. This academic program is named after St. Julie Billiart, the foundress of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.
