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 $3.5 million in financial aid annually. For 2017-2018, approximately 20% of the student body received financial aid. Amounts ranged from 2% to 98% of total tuition costs, and the average award was $30,003.
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.
