Notre Dame awards a number of academic scholarships based on performance on the TACHS exam (standardized test exams for New Jersey students) and prior school records. Scholarship consideration is given to students who list Notre Dame as their first, second, or third choice with preference given to first and second choice candidates. There is no separate exam for those who seek scholarships. Notification of a scholarship award is included in the student’s acceptance letter.
