List of 7 frequently asked questions.

  • Q. How can I support the Spring Benefit?

    1. Attend:  You will not only be supporting our outstanding faculty, but you will also have the opportunity to spend time with members of the NCS community. There will also be dinner, drinks, and an auction for your entertainment.  Invitations will be mailed in January.
    2. VolunteerWe need volunteers and you can donate your time as it is available. We have roles for any level of involvement you can give! Contact Kate Hornyan for a specific role.
    3. Donate:  Our Benefit relies on the generosity of our community to be successful. You can be a patron donor and make a cash donation to the event, donate (or procure) auction items, or be (or find) a sponsor.
  • Q. What kinds of items do you want for the auction?

    If it’s something you would like, chances are good that other NCS families would like it too. Our auction includes vacation homes, concert tickets, behind-the-scene tours, fashion accessories, wine, and more! Contact Kate Hornyan or fill out the donation form to submit an item for auction.
  • Q. What is the difference between a patron and a sponsor?

    “Patron” is the term that we use to describe our individual donors who give to the benefit at a level above the ticket price. This contribution can be made at five different levels (the highest being $5,000) and is considered an outright donation.  The gift goes directly to funding faculty salaries.
    A “Sponsor” is a company or group of persons who give to the benefit in order support student scholarships. This provides them the opportunity to get company or personal exposure at the event.  There are many levels of giving for sponsors, topping out at $10,000 for the premier sponsorship.
  • Q. What does the Spring Benefit support?

    Funds raised by the Spring Benefit will go to support faculty and staff salaries and development as well as the student scholarship endowment. At NCS, we believe that our best resource is our educators so we want to ensure continued development to bring the best teachers and teaching practices to our students. Additionally, we believe that all students deserve a quality education, regardless of their family's ability to cover tuition; growing the scholarship endowment helps ensure that deserving students for years to come are able to attend NCS.
  • Q. Who attends the Spring Benefit?

    Anyone can attend the NCS Benefit, although it is mostly attended by parents and current faculty and staff.
  • Q. What should I wear?

    Come dressed in whatever you comfortable in! This event is casual, jeans are acceptable, and many of our guests come dressed to the theme.
  • Q. Where should I park?

    Parking is available in the Cathedral garage at normal parking rates. Our event patrons at the $5,000 and $2,500 levels will receive reserved parking in the Athletic Center garage.
