All plans with the exception of the annual plan must be paid through automatic bank draft on the 10th or the 25th of the month through FACTS Management Company. Their fee of $20 per family for semi-annual drafts or $38 per family for quarterly or monthly drafts will be drafted when you enroll with them online. (for re-enrolling families, it is drafted after we receive and process the NCS financial agreement.) If you choose to pay on the annual plan and wish to pay with a credit card, your total fees will be increased by 3% of the amount charged. NCS reserves the right to assess a 1.5% per-month late fee for all payments, regardless of payment plan, that are not made as scheduled.

Technology Fees
K – 3rd – $200 –  Each classroom will now have a full set of iPads.
4th – 8th – $300 – For this age group, we will continue to partner with Apple and each individual student will have a new iPad with the most current technology.
9th – 12th – $150 – It has been determined that the best device for high school curriculum is a laptop. You will have the following options:

  • Purchase or provide your own laptop (from Apple, Best Buy, Staples, etc.) based on specifications provided by NCS.
  • Lease/Purchase plan from an NCS specified vendor. NCS is working with a vendor to provide a Lease/Purchase plan for parents. Parents can either purchase this laptop from the vendor or do a Lease/Purchase plan so they can pay for the laptop over time. This plan will also include a service plan for any repairs needed.

Meal Ticket
Each student in grades K-12 must purchase a meal ticket (funds are added to the student ID in RenWeb) at the beginning of the school year ($200 for K-5, $300 for 6-12.) These funds may be used throughout the school year for breakfast or lunch purchases in the NCS cafeteria, and you may add funds as needed by sending a check to the cafeteria. Families paying by bank draft may add this to your total to be drafted, and we will use the first $200 or $300 of your July draft to cover your ticket so funds will be available to your students on the first day of school.

Sibling Tuition Discount
If more than one child from the same family is enrolled in grades K-12 at NCS, deduct $750.00 from the 2nd child's tuition and $1,000.00 from the 3rd and succeeding children's tuition.

Uniforms
Our dress code for students in K-12 requires them to wear uniforms. Required shirts are purchased from Parker Uniforms. Additional information about the dress code is available in the student handbook.

Pro-Rating
If your child is enrolled after the beginning of the school year, your fees (except for the bank draft fee) will be pro-rated based on the school's 178-day school year.

Accident Insurance
Student accident insurance is included in your tuition and covers students during school activities.  This coverage is secondary to your personal coverage, and it is your responsibility as parents to make sure the school office is aware of any injury to your child which occurs during a school-sponsored activity and requires the services of a doctor or health care facility.

After School Care
After-school care is available for students in grades K-8 until 6:00pm.  Call the Lower School office at 356-5600 x 150 for information and an application. Click here for more information .

Financial Aid
NCS does not receive any outside assistance with financial aid, but we do offer a limited amount of assistance to qualified families. Students in grades 9-12 who participate in our varsity sports programs are not eligible to receive financial assistance unless they participate in our student employment program, in which case they may apply their earnings to their tuition.  For an application and information, contact the business office at 356-5600 x 115.
