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.
