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 2020-2021 tuition rates of $6,950 for high school, $6,450 for junior high, $4,950 for elementary, and $3,750 for kindergarten. We are able to keep our rates lower because of the gift income we receive from generous donors each year.

Besides this automatic amount of financial aid that every student receives, 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, and usually fewer than 25% of our students are eligible to receive it.

While it is our desire to see the enrollment of children at NCS 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 NCS.

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.
