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. Please refer to our financial brochure for a list of additional charges and our school policies.
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. Monthly payments are due and payable at the 1st of each month.
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 prompt payment discount of $5 per student will be given if the account balance is paid in full by the 10th of each month. When the 10th falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the discount will be given if the payment is received by the next business day. Payments are considered late after the 20th of each month.
There is a $150 discount per student if tuition is paid in full by July 31, 2019. Families receiving the annual tution discount are not eligible for the prompt payment discount.
For families with 4 students, a family discount of $1,600 per year divided over 11 months is given to the 4th student.
Families are encouraged to pay online using FACTS Family Online (ParentsWeb). You may also pay with check or cash at the business office. Two-party and post-dated checks are not accepted. Credit/Debit cards are accepted for donations only.
