Tuition & Assistance
For most families, investing in a private school education requires careful financial planning and a serious commitment on the part of both the family and the school. We are committed to making the VES experience available to as many families as possible and look forward to working with you.
Because each family is unique, we are here to help you determine the best plan for this important investment.
To begin the process of providing a rewarding experience at VES for your son or daughter, we invite you to start by discussing the options available with your admission counselor. You may find that you qualify for a financial award, which you also can supplement with loans or a combination of payment plans.
VES subscribes to the principles of School and Student Services (SSS) for tuition assistance. To be considered for need-based assistance, parents must complete the Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) by January 15, 2020, and submit your 2018 and 2019 tax information by February 1, 2020. We will communicate decisions regarding financial assistance on March 10, 2020.
