COSTS & FINANCIAL AID
VCS is offering a number of Financial Aid Scholarships that will be granted only to those families who meet the criteria established by the Financial Assistance Review Committee. Due to the increasing number of Financial Aid applications the school receives every year, the committee will be granting a maximum of one scholarship and half per family. It is then the responsibility of the applicant to pay $225 for the second half of the second scholarship and $450 for any additional child.
Financial Assistance will be only for tuition purposes. Other fees such as registration and cost of books must be PAID IN FULL prior to start of classes.
