Independent education is an important investment in your child’s future. VAIS Independent schools have a history of producing graduates who are successful and accomplished. VAIS Schools offer their current students the support of a nurturing community and the benefits of extraordinary teaching. Independent schools are funded partly by the tuition for enrolled students. However, tuition alone does not include the total cost of an independent school education for families. Additional costs may include special fees, books, supplies, trips, meals, activities, sports, and transportation. To guarantee that the greatest numbers of students are able to take advantage of these educational opportunities, our schools are committed to helping students with financial needs. For parents wishing to learn more about financial aid options, VAIS recommends contacting schools directly. To find a school, please search VAIS Schools.
