Education is enhanced by diversity, and one of our strategic goals is creating an increasingly inclusive school. So that our community includes families of every socioeconomic status, NCS provides more than $3.9 million in financial aid annually. For 2018-2019, 19% of the student body receives financial aid. Amounts range from 11% to 98% of total tuition costs, and the average award for tuition is $33,000; NCS also makes awards for extracurricular activities, including Extended Day, travel opportunities, and more.
Financial aid is awarded on the basis of demonstrated financial need, which we define as the difference between a student's educational expenses and the family's resources. NCS does not offer academic, artistic, or athletic scholarships.
