Admission & Costs

To secure your place in a cohort, complete these three simple steps:

Decide if CREST is for you. Our students are typically from their mid-30’s and way beyond, and from many walks in life: people in business, ministry, not-for-profit, men and women.

Fill out an application using the link above. Contact us and we would be glad to answer any questions you have along the way.

Secure your place with a $500 deposit.  Use our online secure payment system, or send us a cheque. Your place is not secured until you make a deposit.

 As of September 15, 2017 the tuition is at the regular rate of $3997 per year.

The cut off date for the next Alberta Cohort is October 2, 2017. The cut off date for the next Ontario Cohort is November 1, 2017.

 Here’s how your refundable deposit works:

$500 and your application form indicates you are seriously considering CREST and want to secure your spot and tuition rate, but you may need more time to arrange funding. The $500 is refundable if you have to withdraw (less $100 admin. fee if after 30 days)

Tuition covers:
  • Three Encounters each year, each consisting of 3 days
  • Coaching sessions
  • Curriculum

Additional Costs:

  • Accommodation:  We negotiate with our venue to get the best possible price for our students. Please budget for what you would typically pay at a hotel for 3 nights lodging as well as meals.
  • Books: approximately $100
  • For Ontario cohorts: Additional cost of approximately $230 per Encounter which covers Continental breakfasts, lunches, coffee breaks, and additional venue costs.

Note: Couples who have done CREST together find it very beneficial. To encourage couples to take CREST together, we offer a $800 discount for the second tuition.

Withdrawal Policy:

If you withdraw before the first Encounter of the CREST year, we will refund your money for that year, except for a $100 administration fee. (Additional fees may be withheld if withdrawal is less than one week prior to the first Encounter.)

By attending Encounter 1 you are making a commitment to the year journey with others, including your fellow students and coaches. Therefore, there are no refunds after the first Encounter of either year.
