Affordability

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 average total cost of educating a child in Nebraska is $12,600*. This is significantly higher than our 2021-2022 tuition rates of $6,950 for high school, $6,550 for junior high, $4,850 for elementary, and $3,950 for kindergarten. We are able to keep our rates lower because of the gift income we receive from generous donors each year.

Because tuition costs are significantly lower than the actual cost of education, all families receive financial aid through the already lowered tuition costs. However, a specific fund for families who can still not afford tuition at the listed tuition rate is in place. We operate under the principle that any family who desires Christian education can receive such here at NC. Therefore, after a family steps out in faith and is accepted to Nebraska Christian, they may apply for additional assistance. (Apply now here.)

While it is our desire to see the enrollment of children at NC be as small a strain on a family’s finances as possible, we do not want to be the only ones making sacrifices and exercising faith on a family’s behalf. We want this to be a joint venture in faith.

We realize this is a delicate balance, but, seeking God together, it is our goal to find that balance with families that enroll at NC.

Multiple Child Discount

We know that tuition costs can rapidly add up for families who wish to enroll multiple children at Nebraska Christian. For this reason, we have a multiple child tuition discount that applies to all families who have at least two children enrolled full time in grades K-12 at NCS. These automatic discounts are 10% for the second oldest child, 30% for the third oldest child, 50% for the fourth oldest child, 70% for the fifth oldest child, and 90% for the sixth oldest child from the same family.

No Hidden Fees!

Because we realize that a Christian education is a major investment for a family, we are completely transparent with our tuition and fees.

We have a flat rate tuition that includes all book and activity fees. The only additional fees are a yearly registration fee of $75, a graduation fee (seniors only), individual field trip fees, and fees for optional services like dorms, lunch, and busing.
