Affording a new covenant education
Choosing your child’s school is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent. Providing a private education is also one of the most expensive, requiring planning and sacrifice. You need a strategy.
All costs considered we believe that New Covenant is the highest value among local school options. We invite you to consider all the available financial strategies, and you may find that New Covenant is more affordable than you thought. Talk to us about ways we can help.
- Make a sustainable plan. You need a plan that not only works in kindergarten, but for the foreseeable future.
- Adjust your standard of living. Chances are that tuition can rival a new car payment, a mortgage, or an expensive vacation. Adjust your expectations realistically.
- Open a VA-529. You can now pay for your child’s k-12 education with pre-tax dollars. The savings can be hundreds of dollars, which over time, make tuition more affordable. Our Business Office can show you how.
- Compare apples to apples when evaluating costs. Many schools have multiple fees that make them more expensive than they first appear. We believe in tuition transparency. View our tuition schedule with all fees here.
More than one child?
New Covenant offers discounts when multiple children are enrolled.
- First two children are 100% (means-tested tuition assistance may apply)
- Third child 20% off
- Fourth+ child 50% off each
