Tuition

Full Program or Pick & Choose

River Tech Elementary is designed to offer a full program from kindergarten all the way through college by 2023 (we currently offer K–6, for ages 5–12).

Planned Timeline:

2021, K–6, for ages 5–12

2022, K–7, for ages 5–13

2023, K–8, for ages 5–14, plus college coaching*.

*We will not offer traditional high school, but will instead offer college coaching, in which we teach you how to get an accredited Bachelor's degree for less than $10,000 by age 18. 


In addition to being an independent school, River Tech is also a Homeschool Resource Center serving the larger homeschool community by offering the ability to pick & choose the classes you want. 

That brings us to your first decision. Do you want to enroll your child(ren) in River Tech K–6, or do you want to do most of the teaching yourself while picking a few classes you like?

Structure of this page

First we will look at the cost of each track/class. Then we will look at the cost of the full program.

Is there a sibling discount?

Yes. 

2 children = 9% off total tuition.
3 children = 17% off total tuition.

4 children = 25% off total tuition.

5 children or more = 33% off total tuition.

Is full tuition paid in months that contain a vacation?

Yes, except for summer. Monthly tuitions are to be paid from August 25th–May 25th, i.e. ten months of the year. (The tuition price takes into account that some months contain a vacation).

For the full K–6 program, it is also possible to pay annually.

We will also offer free classes from time to time. For example, right now we offer five extracurricular classes for FREE until September.

Does tuition include textbooks?

Yes, tuition includes all textbooks. Tuition also includes the use of an extensive collection of tech equipment and software (computers, video cameras, editing software, etc.).

Students are encouraged to acquire and bring their own personal laptop/tablet for classes, so they can keep working on projects at home. For example, imagine your child is working on a 3D model in Blender at school. It would be nice, if your child could keep working on his project at home. However, this is not mandatory.

 
For additional details, see enrollment.

Do we offer scholarships or grants?

Not at this time.
