NSCS does offer need-based financial aid to qualifying families. Financial aid is only available to full-time students. For more information regarding financial aid, please contact our Business Manager, Patti Cook, at pcook@nschristian.org or call 781.599.2040.


North Shore Christian School has partnered with Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST), a third party, to assist in handling our financial aid process. Based on your application and supporting documentation, FAST provides objective assessment of your financial need to inform the decisions of the Finance Committee with regard to Financial Aid Awards.

Financial Aid applications must be submitted online. To submit an application, click button below.

* Applications are available in English and Spanish.

Please understand that only applications that are complete will be processed. Completion requires filling out the application and submitting all required documentation (including but not limited to tax filings and W2s) to FAST in a timely manner. For assistance in filling out the application, you may contact FAST support by phone at 877-326 FAST (3278) or by email at help@ismfast.com.

New Families should complete their Financial Aid application at the same time as their Application for Admissions. Financial Aid is awarded on a rolling basis, based on availability.

Re-enrolling Families  may apply for Financial Aid beginning in January. All applications must be submitted by the February 25th enrollment deadline.
