2017-2018 Annual Fund
To continue to serve the Lord and our students well in the areas of technology, safety and security, curriculum, and facilities, we need significant investment in our operating budget. The Annual Fund Campaign is a key event in raising these funds and making an education at Nampa Christian Schools accessible to as many students as possible. These gifts enable us to enrich and enhance our students’ educational experience through investments in state-of-the-art technology, innovative curriculum, and physical assets.
Your gift to the Annual Fund impacts each student at Nampa Christian ensuring...
Continued Spiritual Emphasis: Chapel services and spiritual emphasis weeks provide special times for praise, worship, and inspiration.
Academic Excellence with Biblical Integration: Students continue to achieve test scores higher than national averages. Our vision is to include more faith-based curriculum. When students truly understand something from a Biblical perspective, they gain a greater understanding of the character of God and have a greater understanding of God’s design.
Strength in Athletics: We are teaching and training our athletes to compete with honor, to the best of their ability, and to the glory of Jesus Christ. Competition provides excellent teaching opportunities to build character and perseverance.
Technology in the Classroom: Access to 21st-century technology learning tools in the classroom reaches diverse learning styles, keeps students engaged and ensures that students are prepared to meet current demands.
Professional Development: Training for our dedicated staff to maximize effective use of curriculum and technology in the classroom.
Upgraded Facilities: The increased used of technology at our campuses creates an increased need to upgrade facilities to comply. Safety is also a top concern and the Annual Fund will provide necessary updates.
Annual Fund FAQs
Doesn’t my tuition cover the school’s operating budget expenses?
No, tuition alone does not cover the cost of educating a child. In order to keep tuition costs at a minimum, The Annual Fund helps to bridge the gap between revenue and expenses and enables us to steadfastly maintain the best possible educational experience.
Why doesn’t the school charge what it costs for students to attend?
We strive to make an education at Nampa Christian Schools accessible to as many students as possible.
