Tuition and Fees

Private education is one of the most significant investments you’ll ever make. As a parent, nothing could be more important than giving your child exceptional learning opportunities in a safe, engaging, and distinctly Christian environment.  

Regardless of your unique goals, we believe a successful education produces students who are able to take what they’ve learned and apply it in a real-world context, making a positive impact that lasts far beyond their school years. This is the type of education we aim to make affordable and accessible to as many families as possible across the Charlotte area.

Assistance for Families

While education is a significant opportunity to invest in your child, we realize that tuition and fees add a major line item to your monthly budget. At NCA, we work with you to make the financial commitment possible through these options:

Monthly Payment Options

Tuition and resource fee payments can be spread over 10 months and automatically withdrawn from a checking or savings account.

Multi-Child Family Discounts

For each additional child that comes to NCA after your first, a tuition discount ranging from 3 to 10 percent is available.

In-Full Discount

A 3 percent discount on tuition (not fees) is available for a single payment to NCA for a family’s entire year’s tuition and resource fees.

Variable Tuition

A limited amount of need-based financial assistance is available through FACTS. More information is available at

Children’s Scholarship Fund

CSF offers a limited number of need-based scholarships to NCA families who apply directly at

NCA Commitment Credit

Long-time supporters of NCA are eligible for a $200 Commitment Credit per child, applied toward a fee of your choosing. This is a way for us to thank families for their generosity.

Northside Baptist Church Member Discount

A 10% discount (tuition only, no fees) is available to NCA parents/legal guardians who are active members of Northside Baptist Church.

Tuition Protection

Families can have extra peace of mind with this program designed to protect families should the party responsible for paying tuition, or that person’s spouse, pass away during the school year.

Discover the Value of an NCA Education

We understand the sacrifices parents make to send their students to a private school. At NCA, our number one priority is making sure you see a return on your investment. This could be a kindergartener who loves learning, a high school student who gets accepted to their dream college, or a middle schooler who matures spiritually, as well as academically. A dollar value cannot be placed on these things. We believe that once you explore all that NCA has to offer, you will see that the value far exceeds the tuition cost.
