  • Tuition fees are calculated for the oldest to the youngest
  • Tuition may be paid using one of three payment plans – annual,
    semi-annual and monthly. Monthly payments can be broken down
    to 10 or 12 equal payments.
  • Payments are due by the 15th of the month, unless the treasurer is notified of a different date.
  • Tuition fees are calculated on the basis of the entire year, therefor, no reductions can be made for vacations or holidays.
  • If a student leaves the school for any reason, or enters after the school year has begun, then charges are prorated according to actual number of days enrolled.
  • If a payment does not come in by the 15th of the month, the first reminder letter is sent on the 20th. If a payment still is not made by the 15th of the following month, a second reminder letter is sent of the 20th of that month. If a payment is still not made, the treasurer notifies the school board where a decision will be made as to whether or not to personally contact the family. This decision is determined by the effort that the family is showing in working on the past due amounts

There is a discount on tuition for pastors and all full time NRCS teachers.

Parent Participation Hours

Each family is expected to perform 30 hours of parent participation services to NRCS. In lieu of the parent hours, there will be a $450 charge, or $15 for each hour not met. The school’s budget relies heavily on parents helping in many areas, also there is greater school satisfaction when parents are involved in the operation of NRCS.

Fund Raising:

  • Fundraising projects must be coordinated and approved by the administrator and the board president.
  • Fundraising should not interfere with the regular giving to the school for current operating funds.
  • The project should have a particular purpose which will be of benefit to the educational program of the school.
  • The project will be of benefit to and assist in the unity and cohesiveness of the school community and the student body.
  • Fundraising projects should be spaced out on the calendar so organizations are not in competition with each other.
  • Organizations within the school may conduct various minor fundraising projects to raise funds for their organization for some specific purpose (e.g. Sports, library, etc.). Each organization is responsible for ideas, planning, promotion, etc.
