At this year’s Salsa Sampler our goal is to raise over $175,000 to support programs critical to our student success. Through the use of state CHOICE funds and private donations, Notre Dame is able to provide our low-income students access to a college preparatory curriculum that is supplemented by extended day, extended year and our Graduate Support Program. However, the CHOICE voucher funding only meets 70% of the cost, and in order to provide this high quality programming we must fund raise over $1.2 million, annually.
Sponsored by the School Sisters of Notre Dame, Notre Dame School (NDS) fosters respect, responsibility and sharing of personal talents while preparing students for admittance to a college preparatory high school. A Catholic school in an English and Spanish bi-literate setting, NDS puts an emphasis on leadership skills, critical thinking, and social justice while empowering students to make positive contributions to society.
