WHAT TUITION INCLUDES
RCS tuition covers academic services used by all students, including many fees commonly charged by other schools such as facilities, textbooks, lab fees, and technology fees (including iPads for 9-12th grade). Additional fees may be incurred for services such as athletics, fine arts, field trips, and social events. Please contact the District Office for more information.
RCS OFFERS MULTI-CHILD DISCOUNTS TO FAMILIES
When more than one child from a family is enrolled at RCS, a 5% discount for each additional child is given. For example, if three children from a family are enrolled, a 10% discount is granted to the entire family. To qualify for this discount, every student must be a member of the family through birth, adoption, foster care, or full legal guardianship.
RCS has adopted a continuous enrollment system where students are continually enrolled from their initial admission until they graduate. Continuous Enrollment Payments (CEPs) are non-refundable. The deadline to opt-out of continuous enrollment for the following school year is February 1st.
Continuous Enrollment Payment
Per Student/Family Maximum $180/$375
CEPs will be split into three monthly payments in February, March, and
April. Families with immediate enrollment from January through May can
opt-out with no fees or penalties until the last day of school.
RCS will apply any paid CEP toward open invoices (tuition or incidentals)
should a parent decide to opt-out after payments have begun.
If a family opts-out for the next school year, then decides to re-enroll after February 1st, the CEP will increase by $50 per family.
