The cost of providing Christ-centered education at Redeemer Christian High School is funded by both parents of children enrolled in the school and a non-parent supporting community. We do not operate on a fee-for-services-rendered basis because the value of Christian education is immeasurable in financial terms, and the viability of the school depends on much more than the financial contributions of parents. For example, the efforts of unpaid volunteers, and the significant assets such as the land and building which have been provided by previous supporters, contribute substantially to our ability to offer a comprehensive education program.
Nevertheless, to ensure adequate financial resources for the operation of the school and equitable sharing of that obligation, tuition at Redeemer Christian High School for domestic students for the 2013-2014 school year is 13% of your total family income from all sources to a maximum tuition of $13,500 per year and a minimum tuition of $7150. This tuition is a family rate, not a per student rate. There is an additional fee of $500 for every extra child enrolled at Redeemer.
EXAMPLES for 2013-14 school year:
If your total family income from all sources is $100,000 per year, you will pay $13,000 tuition for one child, and $13,500 for two children.
If your total family income from all sources is $90,000 per year, you will pay $11,700 tuition for one child, and $12,200 for two children.
If your total family income from all sources is $80,000 per year, you will pay $10,400 tuition for one child, and $10,900 for two children.
You may be asked to provide copies of your income tax returns to verify income.
Families with younger children enrolled in the following feeder schools will receive a reduction on their tuition at Redeemer Christian High School, as well as a tuition reduction at the independent elementary school where their younger children attend. Feeder schools we have this agreement with include:
Ottawa Christian School,
Community Christian School,
Timothy Christian School,
Renfrew and District Christian School,
St. Timothy's Classical Academy,
and Bishop Hamilton Montessori School.
Families are requested to pay a $300 Student Incidental Fee. $100 of that is for a non-refundable textbook fee. Students can draw from the remaining $200 for expenses, like the cost of a class trip, sports team fees, the purchase of a new gym T-shirt, OC Transpo bus tickets, etc. Parents are also required to submit a $500 Volunteer Hours cheque, which will be returned uncashed the following June if they complete their volunteer hours for the school year.
Redeemer Christian High School is a Registered Charity with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). As such the school may issue charitable donation receipts for a portion of your tuition (the after "cost-per-pupil" amount). This means that for most families, the after-tax cost is less than the pledged tuition amount.
