Grades 1–12

About River Tech School

River Tech School is designed to offer a full program from first grade all the way through college, including elementary school, middle school, high school, dual enrollment, and college coaching. We are currently accepting school kids ages 8-13.

You can choose to enroll your child in our five days (recommended) or four days (Mon-Thu) program. School lasts from 8.30 am-2.30 pm. 

What Does "Competency-Based" Mean?

A child that signs up for our 1–12 program, is enrolled in five "tracks": (1) Math-track, (2) Composition-track, (3) Life-track, (4) Tech-track, and (5) Arts-track.

Each track has four levels of competency. A student begins at a level and proceeds to the next level when he has mastered the level he is at. This competency-based method replaces artificial "grades" and allows each student to learn at their own pace.

If a student excels at a subject, they can move faster, and if they find a subject harder they can move slower. Read about the tracks here.

What is School tuition?

You have two options...

Option 1: You can sign up for 5 days a week, 8:30–2:30 pm, for $575/month.

Option 2: You can sign up for 4 days a week (Monday-Thursday), 8:30-2:30 pm, for $525/month.

Registration costs $120.

School Tuition for 5 days a week is  $6900/year. To make the monthly tuition as low as possible, tuition is spread over twelve months. I.e. tuition is paid twelve months per year which comes to $575/month.

School Tuition for 4 days a week is  $6300/year. To make the monthly tuition as low as possible, tuition is spread over twelve months. I.e. tuition is paid twelve months per year which comes to $525/month.

For students beginning in September, the first tuition is to be paid before July 25th, and every month after. (I.e. July 25th, August 25th, September 25th, etc.). For students beginning in the middle of the school year, two months' tuition is to be paid initially. 


The reason you pay an extra month initially is because there are many start up costs when a students begins (such as desks, school books, and other equipment/materials).


You can also choose to pay for the entire school year all at once, before July 25th, with a 5% discount. For 5 day students it comes to $6555. For 4 day students it comes to $5985. 

You must set up automatic payments, either through our website, or you can have your bank send monthly checks. If you send checks, make them our to River Tech, and mail them to 1517 E 1st Ave, Post Falls, 83854, ID. (Do not send them to the school address).
