VCS is excited to begin offering need-based financial aid for the 2018-2019 academic year. Aid will be given in the form of a 25% reduction in tuition for families that qualify. We are currently in the process of finding a third-party organization that will partner with us to make the assessment of a family's financial need. Check back in at the website for updates or follow us on Facebook to hear more about the financial aid process. We will make an announcement when the aid applications are live.
