Notre Dame Urban Education Center is committed to provide transformative educational services where the need is greatest. Most of our families are not able to afford the services we provide. While NDUEC relies heavily on volunteers, there are costs associated with running the four educational programs. NDUEC looks to the generosity and support of the local community. We invite you to join us in empowering children and strengthening families to achieve success in school and in life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there really a need for NDUEC?

Nearly 6% of children in Northern Kentucky dropout of school between 7th grade and high school. Recognizing the need for educational support, NDUEC was established and provides one-on-one tutoring, academic support, cultural and arts enrichment, and structured fitness for the under-served children in our community.

Why should I invest in NDUEC?

Beyond access to health, safety and social services, children need opportunities to enrich their lives and help them be successful. Your contribution enables children and families access an intensive level of academic support and enrichment, and to benefit from this effective program. Your contribution enables children and families to participate in our educational programs.

What difference will my gift make?

Your investment supports the four educational programs: Homework PLUS, Early Learning, Summer Academics, and Family Support. Through the collaborative efforts of the Sisters of Notre Dame, local community organizations, volunteers, and generous donors like you, our students improve their grades, their self-esteem and their journey toward academic success and a more productive and fulfilling life.
