2024-2025 Tuition

The Riverside School Board realizes that a private education is a significant financial undertaking for any family and their goal is to make sure it remains manageable for everyone.  To that end, RCS offers discounts, Variable Tuition, and financing plans for families at all income levels.  In fact, approximately 60% of RCS students are not at the highest tuition rates. 

If the tuition rates present a financial challenge for your family, then we encourage you to apply for a personalized variable tuition rate.

Variable Tuition

Tuition rates personalized for your financial situation.

Variable tuition (VT) allows families to receive a tuition rate that is personalized to their financial situation. Through fundraising events and generous donations, RCS typically provides over $300,000 to supplement tuition for families, making an exceptional Christian education affordable and accessible.  The maximum award is 50% of tuition costs.


If your total tuition for full-time students in grades K-12 exceeds 10% of your family income, consider applying for the RCS Variable Tuition Program through FACTS Grant & Aid. This process is secure, and awards are confidential. Variable Tuition is exempt from any additional discounts (other than full payment).  Families must re-apply every year for Variable Tuition.
