We recognize that parents make many important decisions about their child’s education. At Vermont Day School, we strive to make our education affordable to a diverse group of families, while balancing our budgetary needs to ensure a healthy and thriving school environment. Please find information regarding tuition and financial aid below.
As approved by our Board of Directors, tuition for the 2018-2019 school year is $12,500 per student.
Tuition can be paid either in monthly payments (ten equal payments starting August 1) or in two installments. For installments, the first payment (50%) is due on August 1; the second installment (50%) is due December 15.
Financial aid is available to students on the basis of demonstrated financial need and Vermont Day School’s available funds. Financial aid awards are reviewed annually and are contingent upon continued demonstrated need. Returning student applications (and new applications from siblings of current students) that are submitted on time will be reviewed before awarding aid to new students.
We have selected School and Student Services (SSS) by NAIS (National Association of Independent Schools) to manage our financial aid application and documentation process. To help you get started, we suggest that you explore the resources and step-by-step guide on the SSS website. You may also refer to our Financial Aid Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) document.
How to Apply
To be considered by our Financial Aid committee in our first round of decisions, please complete your online application (www.sssbynais.org/parents) using our school code 9089 by February 1, 2018 for current families and March 1, 2018 for new applicants. After these dates, new and returning family applications will be reviewed on a first-come basis if funds are available.
SSS will request a variety of financial documents, such as your household tax returns (and supporting schedules), W-2s, current mortgage and investment statements and evidence of any extenuating financial circumstances. This information is also reviewed by our Financial Aid committee, who holds it in strict confidence.
