What is involved in the application process?

New Testament maintains a rigorous application process to ensure that we are a good fit with prospective students and families. Application involves a family interview and a formal application, as well as hands-on involvement by the student through a "Shadow Day." For specific details visit our admissions page.

What is a Shadow Day?

A Shadow Day is an opportunity for your child to see what life at New Testament is like. Your student will spend a full day "shadowing" his/her current grade level. We believe this gives the student the opportunity to experience New Testament first-hand.

What are the school's hours of operation and is there provision of extended day supervision for students?

The school day officially begins at 8:00 a.m. and, beginning in September 2012, ends at 2:45 p.m. Supervised care for students is available beginning as early as 7:00 a.m.

The After Care Program is a supervised program provided by the school which allows for child care after the regular school day and also provides opportunity for participation in extra-curricular activities or clubs.

After Care is offered from 3:00 - 5:30 p.m. on Mondays - Fridays when school is in session for a full day. After Care costs are paid separately from tuition.

How does NTCS make tuition affordable for families?

Tuition may be paid in full or may be spread out for ten monthly payments. Monthly payments are arranged through FACTS Tuition Management and are done through automatic withdrawals.

Families paying in full for the upcoming school year may be eligible to receive a 3% discount off the annual total tuition. The school's business office should be contacted for specifics regarding this discount.

To provide for financial assistance needs in an objective and confidential manner, NTCS has contracted with ISM/FAST, a division of Independent School Management of Wilmington, DE.  Aid is granted based on assessment of need and availability of funds. Requests for financial aid must be submitted annually.

Does the school have an athletic program? Are varsity sports available?

New Testament Christian School views athletics as an avenue for positive growth and achievement for the individuals involved as well as for the entire school community. As such, to provide for varsity sports, NTCS is a member of the Massachusetts interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA). Boys and girls in Grades 7 - 12 have opportunity to participate in soccer each fall, basketball each winter, and baseball (boys) and softball (girls) each spring.

What is New Testament's commitment to technology?

We understand that our students are immersed in technology at every age. The world is changing rapidly and students need to be prepared for the outside world. As such, we maintain a state-of-the-art computer lab with all grade levels (Pre-K - 12) involved in grade-appropriate instruction.

Because the online safety of our students is of great importance to us, an institution-wide filtering system along with clearly communicated  “Acceptable Use” policy information is utilized.
