Tuition for Siblings
Tuition for siblings: A family is charged graded tuition for a maximum of three children in grades K-12. For the second child, deduct $250 from that child’s total tuition; for the third child, deduct $500 from that child’s total tuition; for the fourth and additional siblings, excluding Pre-K, pay a flat rate of $750 each.
Tuition is prorated from the start date for those who enroll after the first day of school.
- $15.00 non-refundable enrollment fee.
- $200.00 deposit, which includes a per family $50.00 Home and School Association fee that helps fund numerous projects and learning/safety tools for our students, faculty and staff; and a per family $100.00 Technology fee that helps fund enhanced access to, and use of, technology in the classrooms. The balance of this deposit is applied to a family’s total tuition bill for 2018-2019.
- New K-12 families must also pay a $150.00 on-boarding fee.
Pre-K (3 and 4):

New families needing financial aid would ideally apply by March 1, 2019, to receive optimum aid, although some aid may be available after that date. (See Financial Aid below.)
Financial Aid is need-based and available for all families, regardless of religious affiliation, with students in Grades PreK-12. Interested families are encouraged to apply online from the RCS website (FACTS icon). FACTS applications and supporting documents must be received and verified by March 1, 2019, for returning students (except second round). Second-round financial aid is primarily for families with business income or families accepted after March 1. (Some funds are set aside for second round.) Following the above guidelines, these applications are due June 1. Financial aid can be applied for after June 1, although funds may not be available.
FINANCIAL AID MAY BE FORFEITED IF ENROLLMENT CONTRACT AND FEES ARE NOT RECEIVED BY JULY 1, 2019.

- Payment in full – made by July 1, 2018.

To reduce monthly payments, families may make an additional payment in May, 2019.

- When withdrawal is due to verifiable job loss, tuition will be prorated.
