Welcome to the School Liaison Program

As you may be aware, we are in a unique situation at the 422d Air Base Group as there is not a DoDEA School on our installations. Please read through the information below to start the process of PCSing In or Out of the SLO Program.

Schools In the UK: Your Options

There are 3 main options when deciding what school system to participate in while stationed at RAF Croughton.
  • Local British State School (Free)
  • Independent British School (Tuition Based)
  • Homeschool
The British School system is structured differently from the US school system in many ways, but the schools in our area provide a top-quality education. School in the UK starts at age 4 with reception, which is similar to Pre-K.

If you are interested in homeschooling, please contact the school liaison office at your earliest convenience for further information.

Non DoD Schools Program (NDSP)

The Non-DoD Schools Program (NDSP) can fund your child to attend a tuition-based school or to be homeschooled. NDSP will pay for tuition and some expenses can be reimbursable, such as textbooks and transportation, up to $53,400 /year, depending on the grade of your child. Home Study families are able to receive up to $10,500/year in grades K-6 and $21,500/year in grades 7-12. Some restrictions do apply in both cases.

To see the allowable/non-allowable expenses for both beyond tuition, please go to www.dodea.edu/nonDoD.

Steps to Register or Out-Process

Now that you know about the program, select either option below to make sure you are properly registered or outprocessed from the program.

Youth Sponsorship from Child & Youth Programs

Does your child want their own sponsor? Youth Programs can put them in contact with a local youth who can tell him/her more about England and RAF Croughton.

If interested please contact Youth Programs at (314) 236.8543 or +44.1280.708543 or 422absyouthprograms@gmail.com
