Tuition & Fees
2015-2016 School Year
APPLICATION PROCESSING FEE: $100 PER STUDENT FOR NEW STUDENTS ONLY (Non-refundable)
The Application Processing Fee is required at the time of application to NRCA. This fee covers some of the costs associated with the application process and any testing that is required.
REGISTRATION FEE: $504.00 PER STUDENT FOR K5-12TH GRADE (Non-refundable)
The Registration Fee is non-refundable unless a student is placed in the wait pool and the parent requests a refund prior to an opening in a class.
STUDENT RESOURCE FEE: $480.00 PER STUDENT FOR K5-12TH GRADE (Non-refundable)
The Resource Fee covers most books, student insurance, student association dues, designated student supplies, and classroom teaching supplements. The book portion of this fee is a prorated fee based on some books being consumable and some lasting more than one year. Academic books, tests, and supplies range from $300.00 to $600.00 per student based on grade level. If a student withdraws, the Resource Fee is not refunded and any books or supplies are forfeited.
CAPITAL FEE: $384.00 PER STUDENT (Non-refundable)
The Capital Fee covers the acquisition, upgrade and improvement of our facilities. This fee helps cover expenses like painting, replacement of carpet, repairs to classrooms, restrooms, maintenance of playgrounds, landscaping, impact charges, etc.
NEW FAMILY FEE: $500.00 PER FAMILY (Non-refundable)
The New Family Fee is a one time fee payable within 5 days of acceptance to NRCA. This fee is used for the continued development and advancement of NRCA’s academic programs. Failure to pay this fee within 5 days will result in forfeiture of acceptance to the school.
TUITION ASSISTANCE: Tuition Assistance Awards are based on the family’s demonstrated need as determined by FACTS Management Company (‘FACTS’). FACTS is a third-party agency that makes financial needs assessments for schools. FACTS uses information supplied by the applicant to assess financial need. Applications are made online at nrcaknights.com under the Admissions link. Each award is made in the form of a discount on tuition and is for one year only, based on availability of Tuition Assistance funds and is awarded to returning families first. The deadline for initial awards is March 31, 2015. Applications submitted after that date will be reviewed and awards will be based on the amount of assistance remaining. New students must be accepted by NRCA prior to Tuition Assistance being requested.
WITHDRAWAL FEE: $500.00 PER STUDENT: Students are considered enrolled for the entire school year; therefore, budgets and teacher contracts are set accordingly. The early withdrawal of a student creates an opening which NRCA may not be able to fill with a viable candidate. Students who withdraw anytime between July 1, 2015 and April 30, 2016 will be assessed a $500.00 Withdrawal Fee per student in addition to the Registration, Resource and Capital fees. Also, the full month’s tuition is due for any month in which the student(s) attends one school day. All fees are due in full and are non-refundable. Refunds are for tuition only, and will be made on accounts that are paid beyond the current month. Official transcripts, report cards, and records cannot be released or sent to other schools if an outstanding balance remains at NRCA.
ANNUAL FUND: The Annual Fund provides resources for our school, outside of the normal operating budget, that directly impact our mission of Christian education excellence. NRCA is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, and your contributions help make NRCA an institution of excellence in academics, fine arts, and athletics. Please pledge to make your tax deductible gift to the Annual Fund by December 31, 2015.

12 Month Plan
(Drafted by FACTS)
Registration: 1st Installment paid January 1 of previous school year as registration for next year.
Advantage: The 12-month plan combines the yearly tuition with registration, resource, and capital fees and divides the total by 12, for 12 equal installments. The 1st and 2nd installments are made in January and March of the previous year and go towards payment of the registration, resource, and capital fees. Students who withdraw after these months are responsible for payment of any fee amount not covered by the first two installments.
FACTS Management: All monthly tuition payments are made, via electronic funds transfer, to FACTS Tuition Management. The annual fee for this service is $41.00 PER FAMILY.
9 PAYMENTS (1st payment - September 5th and 9th payment - May 5th)
Only full-time Aftercare is available (no drop-ins). Aftercare is not held on half-days, teachers’ workdays, school holidays, or summer vacation. All monthly Aftercare payments are made via electronic funds transfer to NRCA on the 5th of each month.
LATE FEES: A late fee of $30.00 is assessed each month if resource fees, capital fees, tuition installments, and/or aftercare payments are not paid by the due date. A returned check or draft results in a $30.00 returned check charge.
NO BILLING STATEMENTS: NRCA does not send statements or invoices.
After school care begins upon dismissal of school and ends at 6:00 p.m. Only full-time aftercare is available; no drop-ins. Students are considered enrolled for the entire school year. If a child leaves the Aftercare program during the school year, they may not return to the program for the remainder of that school year. The full month’s payment is due for any month in which the student attends one day. The Aftercare program is not available on half-days, teachers’ workdays, school holidays, or summer vacation.
