Making an NCCL School Education Accessible
An NCCL School education is an investment in your child's future. We want to help by making tuition manageable for our families.
Approximately one third of NCCL School students are able to benefit from the school’s scholarship program. This support is rooted in our belief that a community works best when it includes a diversity of talents and attributes, including socio-economic, gender, cultural, and racial diversity. As a welcoming, inclusive community, NCCL School embraces and celebrates the commonalities and differences of our school and the wider world. We believe that a meaningful, purposeful life includes learning from all people — all genders, ethnicities, religions, and socio-economic backgrounds. We know that the best standards of education — and our own school values — find that children build higher levels of empathy and achievement in a diverse environment.
No candidate should be deterred from applying based on finances. The financial aid program is designed to establish the strongest student body for the academic program we offer, and to enhance the educational experience of all our students. All financial applications and awards are kept confidential and shared only amongst administrative staff.
Ann Brown Scholarship Fund
NCCL School is committed to enrolling students of diverse economic, racial, social, and ethnic backgrounds. We have established the Ann Brown Scholarship Fund, in honor of our founder, to provide financial assistance to families with diverse backgrounds.
How Financial Aid Awards Are Determined
A student’s financial need is defined as the difference between the NCCL School tuition and an estimate of what the student’s family can reasonably contribute for education. Regardless of the student’s talent and attributes, a candidate cannot receive a scholarship unless they qualify based on family income. In order to be considered for a financial aid award, families are asked to fill out a financial aid application. NCCL School computes an estimated family contribution using a family’s gross income, assets and liabilities, as well as taxes, educational expenses of other children, unusual debts, and medical expenses. The result of this computation is then used by NCCL School's Outreach and Financial Director and Administrative Director as a guide for determining the amount of the award.
