The Village School accepts students on a “need-blind” basis; we believe that tuition expenses should not be an impediment to enrollment. Through funds specifically set-aside within the school’s operating budget The Village School offers financial aid to families who could not otherwise afford to enroll their children at Village. Village does not grant academic, athletic, fine arts, or any special interest scholarships.
Financial aid decisions are not based solely on income, as many factors can determine a family’s ability to pay. The Village School partners with School & Student Services (SSS) though National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), to guide us in awarding financial aid for students in 6th grade and above. All aid is based on demonstrated financial need, and parents of candidates must provide confidential financial statements in their applications. All financial aid information is held in the strictest confidence.
How to Apply for Financial Aid
All applications for Financial Aid must be completed and submitted through our partners the School & Student Services (SSS) of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).
Families initiate an application for financial aid by completing the online Financial Aid application for SSS.
