Quinte Region Christian schools are coming together under one governance model. What does this mean for you? A single tuition model for starters! If the idea of paying ‘double tuition’ has kept you from enrolling your kids in both Christian elementary and high school, then it’s time to explore Christian education again. If you’ve never enrolled your child in a Christian school, the tuition rate for families new to Christian education is 50% off for your first year!
