$260.00 for current NCS students re-enrolling after February 10, 2023
This fee does not apply against tuition.
Tuition includes books, student accident insurance, and a student activity fee for home ball games and music/drama productions.
*If paying semi-annually add $150, quarterly add $225, and monthly add $300.
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 $50 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.
Any past due balances must be paid before your child(ren) will be permitted to return to school after each scheduled break (e.g. Fall Break, Christmas Break, Spring Break).
K – 1st – Each classroom will have a full set of iPads.
2nd – 8th – Each student will be issued a Chrome Book or an iPad based on their grade level.
9th – 12th – 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.
Each student in grades K-12 must purchase a meal plan (funds are added to the student ID in FACTS) at the beginning of the school year ($225 for K-5, $330 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.
The Ancillary Fee is $195 for K5, $215 for 1-5, $205 for 6-8, $200 for 9-11, and $285 for Seniors and will cover things like yearbooks, field trips, and most classroom supplies. For middle and high school students, it will also include one standard PE uniform, and for seniors it includes their cap and gown.

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.
As a means of encouraging parents of students now enrolled in NCS to actively tell other families about the benefits of a Nashville Christian School education, we have in place a referral incentive program whereby a tuition credit of $500.00 will be given to current NCS parents for each new family they are responsible for bringing to NCS for the coming school year.
The following criteria will be used to determine who will be eligible to receive the enrollment incentive: The referred family must list the currently enrolled family by name on the application for enrollment.
- The referred student must not be a sibling of a currently-enrolled NCS student or a child or grandchild of a former NCS student.
- The new student must complete one full year at NCS, and his or her tuition account must be current before the incentive is earned. A credit memo dated May 1 will be posted to the referring family's tuition account to reduce their balance due. If the referring family's tuition has been paid in full at that time, the credit will apply to the following year's tuition account or will be refunded if they only have a graduating senior.
- The referral incentive credit is not transferable and is good for the following school year tuition only.
- If there is a student in the referring family that is in our Student Employment Program (SEP), the referral credit will apply to the student's SEP balance, thus reducing the number of hours the students will have to work.
- The maximum tuition credit that can be awarded is $5,000.00 per referring family.
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.
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.
LIFE (Learning is for Everyone) Program
The LIFE Program is available to students K-12 who have been diagnosed with learning differences or medical conditions requiring support services in the classroom setting. Provision of LIFE services is contingent upon student enrollment and teacher availability. Click here for more information about the LIFE Program and fees.
Nashville Christian School offers need-based financial aid for grades K-12. Our Board of Trustees budgets a set amount of aid for new and existing families each year. The amount of aid available to eligible families is determined by an evaluation of need by: the Facts Tuition Management Company, a school administrative committee, and the available budgeted funds.
All need-based aid is awarded annually. Each family must apply each year as awarded aid is not renewed. Students receiving financial aid in grades 6-8 must participate in at least 2 extracurricular activities.
The deadline for financial aid applications is January 31, 2023.
To apply for 2023-2024:
- Complete a NCS K-12 Application for admission.
- Go to online.factsmgt.com/aid and follow the aid application instructions. Our school number is 15039, and their financial aid application fee is $35.00. While FACTS does not have a deadline for receiving online aid applications, it would be to your advantage to apply as early as possible since there is a limited amount of aid available each year. If you have a question, you may call FACTS at 866-315-9262. If you need to fax documents to them, that number is 866-315-9264.
