Notre Dame recognizes the value and impact of athletic programs on learning and that learning doesn't take place only within the four walls of the classroom. Families choosing a college preparatory education expect successful co-curricular offerings and should consider a learning environment that includes superior athletic offerings alongside superior academic offerings. Notre Dame provides exceptional athletic programs and facilities designed to advance our learning environments and in support of our mission to prepare students for college.

Athletic Expenses

Notre Dame has a pay to play policy to supplement the costs of providing exceptional athletic programs. The cost of operating athletics programs at Notre Dame is partially covered by tution income and partially covered by associated fees. The estimated cost of participation for one student per season is between $500 and $750. The following fees and expenses apply to students and families that wish to participate in co-curricular athletic programs:

Athletic Fee

An athletic fee of $250 is charged per season to each student participating in a particular sport. The maximum fee charged per student per academic year is $500 or two seasons, regardless of the number of seasons in which the student participates per school year. The maximum fee charged per family per academic year is $750 or three seasons, regardless of the number of seasons or student athletes (who are siblings) per school year. The athletic fee supplements the costs associated with the administration of athletic programs, including facilities, transportation, officials, and uniforms (when retained by program).

Program Fees

Each program has unique program and equipment needs and costs associated with participation. The program fee will be determined by each individual program based on needs and required equipment. The program fee might include a spirit pack, sport-specific supplemental insurance, fundraising commitments, tournament fees, or similar costs per each season.

Personal Items

The unique nature of each program will require student athletes to purchase personal items such as swim suits, personal uniform items, under garments, shin guards, cleats, mouth guards, or similar personal items required but not provided by the program. Some of these costs might be included in the program fee or may require an individual purchase by the student athlete.
