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.
It is expected that all families applying for VMS Tuition Assistance, whether new or current, will carefully read the Tuition Assistance Handbook. We aim to make a VMS education available to all remarkable students, regardless of their financial resources. We offer flexible payment plans and a commitment to work with families and their financial needs throughout their years at VMS.

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.
