NCS Tuition Assistance Program
Thanks to generous donors, the NCS tuition assistance program makes Christian education possible for nearly 100 students each year who wouldn’t otherwise be able to attend our school.
Nanaimo Christian School’s tuition assistance program provides temporary financial assistance toward the payment of tuition fees for parents/guardians who are unable to pay the full cost of Christian education.
Up to 50% of tuition support may be offered, pending the application review, in the first year with lower amounts provided in subsequent years. The goal of the program is to assist families in transitioning to independently covering the costs of tuition depending on individual circumstances.
The total amount available for assistance is spread out among the applications on an as needed basis. Once the total amount has been allocated, no more applications will be received.
Complete the online tuition assistance application* by May 15.
Applications are reviewed in confidence by the Finance Committee.
Once reviewed by the finance committee, applicants are contacted by email by July 31 and informed of the level of assistance provided.
* Families who require tuition assistance MUST reapply each year, whether their financial situation has changed or not.
As you consider submitting an application, please make the request only if it is truly needed. We want to support families who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford the cost of Christian education. Here are some specific circumstances that may determine application acceptance.
May be accepted if:
Loss of employment without the ability to replace income
Terminal or significant health issues without the ability to borrow
Marital breakdown without the ability to replace income
Willingness to pay a portion of the tuition
Will likely not be accepted if:
Ability to borrow funds
Ability to sell certain non-essential assets or investments
Chronic requests for tuition assistance where lifestyle suggests that spending is not well controlled
Lack of effort to raise money from friends, family and church
Evidence of spending demonstrating that tuition is not a priority (i.e. tropical vacations)
Unpaid tuition balances from previous years -- unless you arrange payment or a payment plan of the unpaid balances
