Payment Options

Tuition and Selected Annual Fees

NPS offers two options to pay for tuition and selected annual fees:

1. Payment in full prior to June 1, 2018
2. Periodic payment plans through the FACTS Tuition Management Program

FACTS Management offers NPS two types of periodic plans: 1) one with three payments in June, September, and December respectively and 2) a ten-payment, monthly plan that starts in May or June. Payments can be made through direct debit or by credit card. The FACTS fee is $46-$66 per family and an additional convenience fee (2.85% of the payment amount) is charged by FACTS to utilize the credit card option. (Direct debit from a checking account does not incur the credit card convenience fee.)

Please note that the deadline to enroll with FACTS Management is May 1, 2018.

Each student's invoice for the 2018-2019 school year includes the following fees, of which tuition and, for families new to NPS, tuition insurance are mandatory. You may also include the optional fees listed below in your preferred payment option. Details regarding the insurance programs are available from the brochures linked below.

Setting Up Your Payment Option

Payment in full prior to June 1, 2018
Should you choose to pay in full, please submit your check to the School prior to June 1, 2018. The payment amount should equal the amount invoiced for the 2018-2019 school year, which you will receive in an April letter. Due to the fees imposed on credit card transactions, the School cannot accept credit cards for this payment option.

Re-enrolling with FACTS for 2018-2019
If your enrollment with FACTS remained active throughout the 2017-2018 school year, you will be re-enrolled automatically for 2018-2019 using the amount invoiced for the 2018-2019 school year, which you will receive in an April letter. You will have the opportunity to make banking and demographic changes to your account by accessing your FACTS account after April 1 and before the new contract with FACTS takes effect on May 1.

Non-tuition and other Optional Charges

Incidental charges including After School Programs, After 3 Club, Early Birds, the flu clinic, and drop-in fees are billed to families during the school year using the FACTS incidental billings program – regardless of whether a family has chosen FACTS as the means for tuition payment. This service is available to all families at no additional cost and has several benefits: the ability to pay from a bank account or with a credit card, email invoices and balance reminders, etc. Monthly, families will be billed for incidental charges from FACTS directly, so please be on the lookout for emails around the end of each month from “FACTS Management Company.”
