Tuition and Fees

Tuition and Fees
 
Redeemer congregation has a passion for Christian Education and wants to keep it affordable for both member and non-member families.  The cost of educating one child at Redeemer Lutheran School is over $4900 per year. We realize that such a cost would inhibit many famlies from enrolling their children.  Therefore, Redeemer Church has made affordable, excellent, Christian Education our highest priority, devoting 72% of our member offerings to subsidize the cost of education.  

Every student who is enrolled at Redeemer receives a financial grant from Redeemer Church that covers most of the education costs.  We call it a Partner Grant, since the entire congregation is partnering with our school parents to pay for their children's education.  For example, 1st-8th grade member students receive a Partner Grant of $4230.  1st-8th grade non-member students receive a Parnter Grant of $3080.  Preschool education is also subsidized, but at a different level.

The cost for incidentals such as hot lunch, band, athletics, field trips, and piano lessons are not covered by the Base Tuition/Fees.

*The $45 increase from 2017-18 for 1st-8th grade (and $25 for Kindergarten) is due to a new technology fee that helps cover the replacement costs of chromebooks and smartboards.  This fee should not increase significantly over the next five years.
