The most important requirement for admission to New City Christian School is a caring adult—parent, extended family member, or guardian—willing to make a commitment to his or her student’s success by faithfully partnering with the school. As a school community we use Covenants or promises as the basis for our relationships. Our Board, our faculty and staff, our parents, and our students each have a Covenant which outlines responsibilities and also demonstrates what we can expect from others. You can view our covenants here to understand the level of commitment we require. We invite all interested families to visit New City as the next step for admission. Our school was founded to address the particular needs of African-American children from lower-wealth households. However, we welcome students from all races, backgrounds, and ethnicities and believe that our curriculum and methods will well equip all of our students. Our desire is to offer a truly affordable private education to any family willing to faithfully uphold the mission of New City. Our tuition is based on a sliding scale and we also provide generous scholarships for our students.
