Balancing your ability to send your child with the actual cost of education
A Nebraska Christian education is a financial and spiritual investment in your child’s future.
Our goal is to keep tuition affordable for the average family. The 2020-21 per-pupil cost of education in Nebraska was $15,550.26. While our average per pupil cost is around $10,000, other schools across our state and in our conference with similar enrollment sizes have per pupil costs well over $20,000 and some have broached $30,000. Two large variables that make this possible include: 1) Faculty & Staff contribute by accepting wages and benefits below the market in order to serve your child at Nebraska Christian and 2) Generous Donors provide gift income that funds an Opportunity Grant to provide a more affordable tuition rate well below the actual cost of education. This grant is available for each dependent K-12 student of a Nebraska family.
Because tuition costs are significantly lower than the actual cost of education, all families receive financial aid through the already lowered tuition costs. However, in addition to the Opportunity Grant, there is a limited amount of additional financial aid available for families whose financial situation makes it difficult to pay the tuition we do charge. This additional financial aid may be applied for after a student is admitted. (Apply now here.)
We desire a joint venture in faith with families who desire to partner with NC to equip their child with a Biblical Worldview that empowers them to stand on Truth. We have been blessed to be able to say that we don’t turn families away due to lack of finances. Together, we can find a way.
