The simplified tuition rate for grades TK-8 combines the cost of most educational field trips that are part of our curriculum, miscellaneous fees, and classroom supplies. Tuition for grades 9-12 does not include miscellaneous fees and school-related trips.
The annual tuition amount is the cost of attending RAA for a school year. For your convenience, the annual tuition charge is divided into 11 installments and billed July through May. The monthly installment plan is designed to divide the cost over 11 months and does not signify the cost per month to attend RAA. A monthly statement will be emailed to the financially responsible party. Tuition payments are due and payable according to your FACTS payment schedule.
No refund will be given for extended absences or vacation periods.
Redlands Adventist Academy does not want finances to be an obstacle that prevents a student from receiving a Christian education at RAA. There are sources of tuition aid available which are outlined in the Financial Aid & Scholarship Program page. The enrollment and aid assessment applications online must be completed to be considered for financial assistance. You maximize your access to financial assistance by applying early.
A discount of $150 per student will be applied for families choosing the annual tuition plan in FACTS. The deadline to signup for this plan is July 10, 2021.
Families are encouraged to pay online using FACTS Family Portal (ParentsWeb). Payment methods are ACH, credit, or debit cards. You may also pay with a check or cash at the business office. Two-party and post-dated checks are not accepted.
