Affordability and Scholarships

Our goal is to make a Sion education available to talented students from all economic backgrounds.

At Notre Dame de Sion, we admit students based on their ability to succeed, not their families’ ability to pay. Sion offers various forms of financial assistance to help make the school affordable. This includes need-based assistance and scholarships, academic and merit scholarships, multi-child discounts and professional discounts.

ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS

Each incoming freshman that scores at or above the 80th percentile on the High School Placement Test (HSPT) administered at Notre Dame de Sion will automatically receive an academic scholarship. This scholarship is renewable each year through the student’s senior year, provided that she maintains the required Grade Point Average or above. (Please note, you must register and complete the HSPT to qualify for our academic scholarships).
