Helping to Keep Tuition Affordable

Charitable Tax Receipts

Tuition Payments to Rhema Christian School qualify for Charitable Tax donations after deducting a cost per student (CPS) – estimated at $3,100. The Federal Government allows parents/guardians who choose a faith-based school for their children to use a portion of the tuition fees as a charitable donation for income tax purposes. Through a formula, schools calculate what the Federal Government calls the cost per student (CPS). This figure is re-calculated each school year. The CPS is charged for each student attending the school. The CPS is deducted from tuition fees paid and the remainder qualifies as a charitable donation for tax purposes.
