RC Christian School admits students on the basis of parental and personal spiritual commitment, entrance exams, and previous school record.
Online Enrollment - New Students
The Board of Trustees for Rapid City Christian School is aware that tuition can be a prohibitive factor for families considering a Christ-centered education for their children. With that in mind, they strive to keep tuition as low as possible while maintaining an exceptional faculty and an increasingly impressive facility.
Additionally, for those not sure they can afford tuition, RC Christian School is able to provide the Tuition Assistance Scholarship (TAS) program, which assists approximately 20 percent of students enrolled. It may be applied for after the enrollment process is complete and all application and registration fees are paid. The maximum financial aid granted is 50%

For a student to re-enroll for the following school year, a re-enrollment form must be completed and returned to the school with the applicable registration fee by March 1.
