Tuition Assistance

Socioeconomic diversity is essential to the education provided by Village Community School. VCS is committed to making enrollment possible for qualified students who otherwise would not be able to attend. Approximately 21% of our families receive some tuition assistance.

Eligibility for tuition assistance begins in kindergarten. Because financial circumstances change, parents must reapply for tuition assistance each year. All tuition assistance applications and grant awards are completely confidential.

When beginning the VCS admissions process, please request our Tuition Assistance Guidelines to review eligibility criteria.

  • VCS uses the services of TADS to process tuition assistance applications. The TADS Application and Worksheet are available starting on September 8, 2015 using the following links:

  • Families must submit a copy of their most recent federal income tax forms (1040), as well as a copy of all W-2 and 1099 forms directly to TADS.  Divorced and/or separated parents are expected to submit independent financial information.
  • TADS applications must be completed by December 15, 2015.
  • VCS Tuition Assistance Committee makes all assistance decisions independently of admissions decisions. However, assistance notification occurs at the same time as acceptance notification.
