Ever heard of NDSP?

Yeah, me neither… until we moved to England.  NDSP is short for Non DOD Schools Program.

It’s a program for children of families who are stationed OCONUS that provides tuition for school when there are no DOD Schools available.

This program will provide tuition up to a certain amount depending on the area, so your child/children can attend a school of your choice at no cost to you*.

This program has been a wonderful opportunity for my family, as we are not near a DOD school so we have been able to send our children to fantastic private schools that we were able to choose at no cost to us*!

It has given my children an amazing experience and opportunity they otherwise wouldn’t have.

So if you are a military family living overseas and there is no DOD school be sure to check it out!
