Throughout our almost sixty year history, we’ve been committed to serving the local community by providing need-based tuition assistance, which currently amounts to more than $1,400,000 per year and is granted to approximately 26% of our families. Applications for tuition assistance must be submitted each year a child is enrolled at VMS. Grants are awarded on the basis of a family’s demonstrated need. To help evaluate need, the VMS Tuition Assistance Committee employs the nationally standardized system, FACTS Management. After reviewing a family’s application, FACTS computes a figure for the family’s expected contribution towards tuition.
This information is for current and new families who have applied for or are interested in applying for Tuition Assistance.
We aim to make a VMS education available to all remarkable students, regardless of their financial resources. We offer flexible payment plans and award more than $1,400,000 million annually in need-based tuition assistance.

Developing the ability to think critically was central to my experience at VMS. Whether the topic was art, geometry, literature, or even soccer, we honed our ability to think critically about the subject at hand, and more often than not, its broader implications.
