We believe that having families that span the socioeconomic spectrum is a critical component of a full and varied school community. Accordingly, the school supports a need-based tuition assistance program. The amount of assistance is based on the family’s financial situation and the availability of tuition assistance funds.
NCRC does not use financial need as a consideration in determining a student’s eligibility for admission. The admission and tuition assistance processes are separate and distinct. The admission process is completed before the Tuition Assistance Committee processes the tuition assistance applications. Acceptance to the school does not guarantee the Tuition Assistance Committee’s ability to meet the financial need of the applicant.
The program, funded by proceeds from the annual Tuition Assistance Auction, is available to families regardless of race, gender, religious, cultural or ethnic origin. Support is based solely on financial need and the availability of funds with priority consideration given to children already enrolled in NCRC. Families receiving tuition assistance are required to make some financial contribution toward tuition.
