We aim to provide the highest-quality elementary and secondary education at a price within reach of the typical Hoosier family, with financial aid to those willing to review their family budgets with a financial counselor and reach out to private sources of scholarships such as grandparents, extended family, and local businesses.
To provide the highest-quality education, our first imperative is to attract and retain the best teachers. To do this, we will pay them a wage comparable to that of their pupil’s family earnings, depending on their level of experience, demonstrated teaching quality, workload, and stage in life. The median annual Hoosier family income was $59,428 in 2013, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
While managing family finances is ultimately a family’s own responsibility, we are happy to assist families in making Redeemer Classical within reach for them. We encourage families to first discuss private sponsorship of their children with family members such as grandparents, their churches, and friends who are business leaders and philanthropists. We will enthusiastically explain our centuries-affirmed model and its merits to any and all such contributors to education excellence in Fort Wayne.
Every family will be required to personally pay $500 per student each year, regardless of their level of outside financial assistance.
For the 2017-18 school year, our tuition rates are $4,000 per student for students in the half-day entry-level forms, Form A and Form B, and $5,500 per student for students in full-day forms, Forms 1, 2, 3, and 4 if tuition is paid in full before the school year begins. These tuition rates are at approximately the local and state average for private schools.
Families who do not pay tuition in full before the school year begins must pay tuition monthly – $425 per month for Forms A and B and $575 per month for forms 1, 2, 3, and 4 – for 10 months, starting in August.
These tuition amounts are “all-in,” meaning they include all tuition, fees, and curricula (but not personal items such as school uniforms and school supplies). This is to relieve families of constant fundraising requests and unanticipated mandatory fees for this, that, or the other.
