Tuition & Financial Aid

Payment options with FACTS include check processing, ACH Transfer, or credit/debit card. Please note that payments by credit/debit card will incur an additional 2.85% servicing fee. Three- and Ten-Payment Plans incur a one-time service fee of $50 per family when setting up a FACTS account.
|NPS offers 3 payment plan options:|
|1 Payment||Due in full in June|
|3 Payments||Payments in June, September and December|
|10 Payments||Monthly payments beginning in late May or early June, going through late March or early April|
We are committed to making our program accessible to families of all socioeconomic backgrounds and strive to provide financial aid grants to all qualified applicants for admission with demonstrated need. We encourage anyone with concerns about affordability to apply for financial aid.
In addition to providing tuition support, our financial aid program offers discounts on additional program fees including Early Birds and After 3 Club, After School Programs, Lunch Program, Community Events and NPS Summer Camp.
