Tuition assistance is available for families who qualify through the following avenues:
1. The BISON Children's Scholarship Fund – This is a privately funded tuition assistance program for low-income children living in the eight counties of Western New York: Erie, Niagara, Genesee, Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Wyoming and Orleans. Families awarded a BISON Children's Scholarship can enroll their child in any kindergarten through 8th grade private school of choice in Western New York. Scholarships are awarded by annual lottery drawing and are not academic or race-based scholarships, but awarded solely based on need. Families apply online annually by the stated deadlines.
2. Families need to complete the NCCS Tuition Assistance Application and submit the required documentation by the stated yearly deadline. Families must be registered and have paid the registration fee and cannot have any outstanding debts to the school to be considered for tuition assistance. The NCCS Tuition Assistance Application is available from the school's finance office. For more information, email .
Both tuition assistance options must be applied for annually. NCCS will not consider any family for financial assistance unless the BISON application has been submitted. BISON funding neither includes or excludes a family from receiving NCCS tuition assistance. All applications will be considered.
NCCS offers scholarships, which vary for each academic year. These scholarships typically are awarded at the end of the year awards banquet. For information on scholarships, please contact Principal Ludwig at .
