2024-2025 Tuition Rates



The NSBA office will automatically re-enroll all current students unless a parent/guardian has already notified the NSBA office that their child will not be returning to NSBA.

  • The NSBA office will email all parents/guardians and notify them of the automatic re-enrollment on March 25, 2024.
  • Parents/Guardians will have until April 1, 2024, to contact the NSBA office to notify of their desire to withdraw their student(s) from re-enrollment.
  • Fees will be automatically added and financial payment plans will be set up to match the 2023-2024 settings that the parent/guardian selected. If parents/guardians wish to make adjustments, they will have the opportunity to do so prior to finalizing their financial agreement.
  • A re-enrollment fee of $50 will be charged in FACTS by NSBA in April 2024 for the 2024-2025 school year.
  • Upon completing your financial contract, FACTS will charge a fee of either $55 or $25 depending on the payment plan you select. The only way to avoid this fee is to pay the year of tuition in full by the August 2024 deadline (upon which NSBA will cover the cost of the fee for you).
  • Note: Classroom space is limited, and current families have right of refusal through April 1, 2024, for their child’s current spot in the class. Beginning April 2, 2024, vacant student spots will be made available to new families for the 2024-2025 school year.
