Redeemer believes that families from all income levels and from all racial and ethnic segments of the community should have the opportunity to enroll at the school. Thus, RCS actively seeks donations to fund our financial assistance efforts to our community, remembering our Lord’s concern for the poor, the alien and the outcast. Tuition assistance is generally provided to families on a first come, first served and as-needed basis. Levels of assistance offered will depend on a number of factors including total (gross) family income, number of family members, number of children enrolled at RCS, and any additional extraordinary financial circumstances. Half-day students are not eligible for tuition assistance.
In order for us to allocate our resources wisely and fairly, we have enlisted the help of Independent School Management's FAST (Financial Aid for School Tuition) program. ISM's FAST does not decide whether financial assistance will be given or how much to give; rather FAST provides a need-based financial aid analysis service. FAST provides the school with a report, which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. All information from FAST is kept confidential. In extenuating circumstances, FAST recommendations may be appealed in writing to the Board of Directors.
