Variable Tuition

At New Life Academy, we are committed to making private Christian education accessible for families with varying incomes so that more students have the opportunity to flourish in a Christ-centered community where they are known, loved, and valued. Variable Tuition is a need-based tuition assistance program for grades K-12 that helps with the accessibility of a Christian education, thanks to the generosity of our annual donors. Our Variable Tuition model considers your full financial situation, including your debts and other financial commitments, ensuring that the best education for your children is affordable. When you apply for Variable Tuition, the process is confidential, and your application is submitted to a third-party service: FAST (Financial Aid for School Tuition). Once processed, we provide transparent and accurate tuition costs, making it easy for families to discover the accessibility of a New Life education. Please note, there is a $53 nonrefundable application fee through FAST. The purpose of Variable Tuition is to allow more students access to a quality Christian education.

I know he’s going to do great things for other people in the world because he has such a great foundation.


Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes — families can make their tuition payments monthly, bi-annually, or annually.

How does NLA determine if a family is eligible for reduced tuition?

NLA partners with FAST, a third-party financial processor for private schools nationwide. FAST examines a family’s overall financial situation.

Is Variable Tuition available for students in all grades?

No. Variable Tuition applications are available for students in grades Kindergarten-12th. Variable Tuition is not available for Early Education students in Preschool Prep, Preschool, or Pre-K.

Could applying for Variable Tuition diminish the chances of my child being accepted to NLA?

No. Your application for Variable Tuition will be reviewed separately. Submitting an application for assistance has no bearing on your child’s admissibility.

Should we apply for admission to New Life first, or start with the Variable Tuition application?

The first step in the admission process is to create an admissions account in our Veracross Admissions portal. You can access the online application when you log on to your account. Families can apply for Variable Tuition at the same time, even if all admissions application requirements are not yet complete. This helps ensure that your Variable Tuition award gets processed before an offer of acceptance is given.

Do we need to apply for Variable Tuition every year?

Yes. A new application must be submitted every year. Since financial pictures can change from year to year, this ensures that NLA is able to provide funds based on need.
