Welcome Message

Welcome to the Non-DoD Schools Program (NDSP). Receiving orders for an overseas assignment can be the beginning of an exciting adventure for a military or Department of Defense (DoD) civilian family. There are many important decisions that coincide with a transition to a location that is remote or in an area without the support normally associated with an overseas assignment on an installation. Choosing the educational option that will be most effective for your child will be one of the most critical decisions you will make.
