Presidents Email – December 3, 2018
New Saint Andrews College
Merry Christmas. This letter is the third in a series of five end-of-the-year emails highlighting areas where New Saint Andrews College plans to grow and seeks your help in doing so. As part of our Build NSA fundraising effort, we are pleased to be able to offer our students need-based scholarships. NSA charges the most affordable tuition that we can; however, for some families, that tuition is still out-of-reach.
Because NSA does not receive government support, we do not look to federal and state funding to run our institution as is ubiquitously common in higher education. In other words, our mode of operation is highly unusual, and we like it that way. As a result, we are not beholden to federal and state strings which are attached to government funding. Our professors are at liberty to teach the truth without fear; our students are free to think, speak, and write without cowering in the face of political correctness, and that is priceless.
The education that we offer is grassroots, and our funding is grassroots. That is where you can help: many small donations accumulate to fill our recurring scholarship reservoir. Every dollar that is donated eases the financial sacrifice that is part and parcel of our daily work here at the college. Literally, a donation of $10.00 per month given to our Scholarship Reservoir fund (https://www.nsa.edu/buildnsa/) makes a difference in our operations. It all adds up, and we are grateful for all of it. So, please consider helping to shoulder one of the costs of academic freedom.
Recently, NSA has instituted a work-study program to enable students with substantial financial need to offset a portion of their tuition by working in positions at the college, many of which provide direct benefit to the student body. For example, the college is now able to keep our library open weeknights and Saturdays through the service of work-study students. So, your donations to the Scholarship Reservoir fund bless both the students who acquire workplace skills and the college which keeps administrative expenses lower.
As the end of the year draws near, NSA would like to recognize and thank Logos Online School which is one of our partners in the work of classical, Christian education. Logos Online School exists to support parents in their biblical responsibility to train up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. To this end, it provides Christ-centered, computer-based, classical education that is both convenient and affordable. The Logos Online class format is very interactive, as can be seen in its sample classes. Open enrollment for the next school year’s online classes begins January 22, 2019.
Thank you for your interest in New Saint Andrews College and in Logos Online School. As the sun begins to set on 2018, please consider giving to NSA’s Scholarship Reservoir fund. By doing so, many students will be blessed, not only financially, but also academically, as they are able to attend a college which stands strong on the word of God against the current prevailing idols of political correctness.
President of New Saint Andrews College
