REDUCE YOUR TUITION
EAGLE BUCK - REFERRAL PROGRAM
As we continue to grow Rosehill Christian School, we want to show our appreciation to our existing families by rewarding them with a tuition discount for referring new families to our school. When a RCS family introduces us to a new (K-12) family and they enroll their children, RCS will discount your tuition bill by $750 PER NEW Kinder-12th STUDENT ENROLLED. Not only will the existing family receive this discount, but the new family will as well.

For example: An existing family refers a new family with 2 children to RCS and they decide to enroll their children. Sixty days after the first day of the new students’ attendance, BOTH families will receive a discount of $1,500 from their tuition bills. (Not valid for new preschool students).

If you should have any questions regarding the Eagle Buck program, please contact the business office. Eagle Buck redemption requires that the new students are enrolled on the date of disbursement. Eagle Buck redemption requires that the Eagle Buck form be submitted during the application process. Eagle Bucks are not eligible for submission after the student begins attending RCS.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE POLICY
While the availability of school resources, the number of qualified applicants, and overall budgetary constraints influence financial assistance decisions, Rosehill Christian School is committed to making grants available to as many eligible applicants as possible. In an effort to make the process fair to all, Rosehill Christian School considers the following when making award decisions:

The primary responsibility for financing a student’s education rests with the family.

Both parents are expected to contribute to tuition. If a parent chooses not to work, Rosehill Christian School inputs an annual income for a non-working parent.

In the case of divorce or separation, Rosehill Christian School requires both parents to file an application for financial assistance. Rosehill Christian School is not bound by any divorce agreement specifying a parent’s responsibility for educational expenses.

Rosehill Christian School believes a family should invest in their child’s education before elective expenses, for example, secondary home ownership, club memberships, expensive car leases/purchases, and excessive vacations.
FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE GUIDELINES
 
 
 
 
 
 



The Board of Directors has adopted the policy of funding most of the school’s annual operating expenses with tuition dollars. This decision means that tuition controls, in large part, the quality of the education Rosehill Christian School is able to offer. While recognizing that some sacrifice is appropriate for something as crucial as a child’s education, the Board acknowledges that financial assistance will be necessary to build and maintain the sort of student body to which RCS aspires. Consequently, since the beginning of the school in 1990, an annually determined amount of funding has been devoted to tuition assistance. 

For the 2016-2017 academic year, Rosehill Christian School will distribute 2.0% of its projected tuition income in need-based financial assistance. 1.0% has been reserved for returning families enrolling in Kindergarten – 12th grades. The remaining 1.0% has been reserved for new families enrolling in Kindergarten – 12th grades. 

Families are welcome to complete the process prior to completing their application for admission. Please notify Aimee Froelich that you would like to be notified of the reward recommendation prior to completing the application process. Please note that RCS is frequently unable to fulfill the entire amount recommended.

In order for us to allocate our resources wisely and fairly, we have enlisted the help of Independent School Management's FAST (Financial Aid for School Tuition) program. ISM's FAST does not decide whether financial assistance will be given or how much to give; rather FAST provides a need-based financial aid analysis service. FAST provides the school with a report, which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. All information from FAST is kept confidential. Applications are reviewed by the confidential Financial Aid Committee. The committee then makes recommendations to the Head of School relative to the allocation of financial assistance resources for the upcoming year. Upon approval by the Head of School, financial assistance offers are sent to families.


FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PROCEDURES FOR PARENTS
The financial assistance process is outlined below.
Click the “F.A.S.T.” Button (located above-under Financial Assistance Policy), followed by “Start Application”. Financial information should be entered directly through the secure server. Space is provided to fill out additional information that may be pertinent to your application. If desired, you may utilize the “Quick Processing Wizard” to speed up the application process. Lastly, you will need to mail the required tax documents directly to FAST as directed on the application. 
There will be a non-refundable fee of $40.00 to process this application. Once completed the application will be available immediately for the Financial Assistance Committee’s review. You may be contacted by the Director of Business, Aimee Froelich if additional information is needed.


FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PROCEDURES FOR RCS
1. Once the application is entered the Financial Assistance Committee can access your application.
2. The Financial Assistance Committee then meets to review the FAST recommendation for each family’s completed online application.
3. Upon completing this review, The Financial Assistance Committee recommends to the Head of School allocation of financial assistance resources for the next year. Upon approval by the Head of School, financial assistance offers are sent to families.
It is Rosehill Christian School’s desire to extend financial assistance offers before families are required to sign and secure contracts. Unfortunately, this is not always possible. The most frequent cause of such delays is late application for financial aid.


SPLIT FAMILY FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PHILOSOPHY
As a general rule we require financial disclosure of all parents regardless of status by which they have filed their taxes…to include both natural parents as well as any step-parents where a divorced parent has remarried. Parents not fulfilling their court ordered financial responsibilities are not exempted, and in fact their refusal to complete disclosure forms may impair the child’s chances for assistance. The only exceptions made tend to be when we cannot identify a responsible party through skip-tracing. Custody arrangements don’t have much of a bearing on aid eligibility as we consider all parents to share responsibility for the child’s development and educational success.

Providing excellence in Christ-centered education as an extension of the Christian Home
