2021-2022 Tuition Assistance
Through our tuition assistance program, a quality Christ-centered education is available to most anyone who desires it. Affordability should not deter families from applying for admission to the school. Most people find that with tuition assistance they are able to comfortably afford an NHCS education for their child.
Tuition Assistance awards are based on the family’s demonstrated need as determined by FACTS Management Company. FACTS is a third-party agency that makes financial needs assessments for schools. FACTS uses information supplied by the applicant to assess financial need. Each award is made in the form of a discount on tuition only and is for one year only, based on availability of Tuition Assistance funds and is awarded to returning families first.
Applications submitted by prospective families will be reviewed once the family has completed a campus tour with a member of admissions personnel.
PLEASE NOTE: If a student receives any additional funds such as the Opportunity Scholarship, Disability Grant, etc. after a tuition assistance award is offered, the award will be adjusted to reflect the additional income, according to the FACTS assessment of financial need.
Applications to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment are made online at northhillschristian.com, under the Admissions tab. Select Tuition and then Tuition Assistance. Click on the link to FACTS. New applicants will need to create an account. Returning applicants can log into their existing account.
FACTS charges a $35 non-refundable application fee, payable by credit card, at the end of the application.
