How Can You Help?

Information iconWays To Support NCS

For over 30 years, Northside Christian School has committed itself to preparing tomorrow's leaders through a comprehensive education of academics, athletics, and fine arts, woven together with faith.

Contrary to popular belief, tuition does not cover the full cost of educating each student. It takes a combination of tuition and charitable donations to provide the distinctives that private Christian school education offers: small classes, exemplary teachers, resources that many public schools cannot offer, exceptional offerings in exploratory subjects, more personal attention, an unapologetically Christian environment, and so much more.

Paying tuition gives your child access to all of this. We must rely on the charitable gifts of our parents, grandparents, alumni and friends to help cover the "gap" between what tuition & fees cover and the actual expense of operating NCS. There are many ways you can partner with Northside Christian School to continue its commitment to excellence.

Annual Fund

An investment in the Northside Christian School annual fund is an investment in the academic, spiritual and experiential enrichment of today"s youth and tomorrow"s leaders. Tax-deductible contributions to our annual fund help bridge the gap between tuition revenue and the actual cost of school operations.
