NMCS is an independent, Christian school. Tuition provides about 80% of the cost of education. The rest of the need is met through a combination of donations, gifts from our Endowment Fund, and several other sources.



Families may qualify for a need-based scholarship. At NMCS we are a Christian community. If you desire a Christian Education for your children and believe that the cost is prohibitive for you due to your income, we encourage you to apply for a scholarship. If you want to send you children to NMCS, we will help you find a way to do it. For more information, please contact the school office at (231) 825-2492.
