Registration Now Open!
Registrations for the 2023-24 academic year, which is at our Annandale, VA campus, are now open.
Currently enrolled families receive class placement priority until Jan. 15.
Tuition rates are adjusted for inflation, guided by the federal cost of living adjustment (COLA) percentage.
A very limited amount of tuition assistance is available for families in need, and a committee will consider all applications and financial data.
Payment of the first of ten equal payments secures your child’s enrollment.
Once you complete your registration, you will be invoiced for tuition, typically paid in ten equal payments, with the first payment due after registering. This payment is non-refundable and secures your child's (children's) place in the program(s).
We offer several methods of tuition payment, including electronic, which do result in fees charged to the Center on Redemptive Education. For example:
PayPal charges the CRE ministry 3.49% + $.49 for all transactions except charitable donations.
Credit card transactions charge the CRE ministry 2.9% for all transactions.
- ACH (electronic bank transfers) charge the CRE ministry 1% for all transactions.
Checks mailed to CRE result in no charge, so all of your payment goes directly to ministry.
We offer all of these options for your convenience. Please choose the option you prefer; we just provide this information so you are fully informed.
Paying your invoice for recurring (e.g., monthly) tuition payments
On your invoice, choosing the Bank (ACH) option means more money goes to ministry and less to credit companies and other payment vendors.
Discount for four or more children
Families enrolling four or more children in 3-day programs
pay regular tuition only for the first three and
receive a 50% discount on each additional child's tuition.
We want to make it possible for your family to experience Redemptive Education.
As a Christian ministry, we aim to care for those in need while applying sound stewardship principles to ensure a sustainable ministry. We will do our best to make it possible for your family to afford tuition while also making sure we have sufficient resources to pay and retain the best teachers and responsibly balance the budget.
Supporters of the ministry have provided some funding as gifts to assist families in need. CRE also expands this fund as budget allows.
Since these funds are quite limited, we carefully review each request in light of available aid funding.
If you have applied and interviewed and have been accepted, but you know that you cannot afford full tuition, you may apply for tuition assistance. You will fill out a form that includes submission of family information and federal tax return documentation. You will note on that form how much tuition aid you are requesting. We encourage families to submit a completed tuition assistance application form with all documentation as early as possible.
A committee that meets regularly will review your information and request along with other applications for assistance.
The timing of when you receive notification of the committee's decision depends on the time of year and the number of other applicants. We do remain mindful of your family's need to make decisions and do our best to communicate the decision as soon as possible.
CRE does not make public announcements about which families receive awards, and families receiving awards should protect this confidentiality as well.
