Students may be accepted to Valor regardless of their family’s financial situation. After acceptance, Valor offers annual tuition assistance on the basis of financial need. Valor does not offer scholarships for academic, athletic or artistic merit, tuition loans or full tuition awards.
Consistent with the industry benchmark for private independent schools, Valor provides 20 to 25 percent of students with financial aid. At the same time, every family is expected to make some measure of sacrifice and financial contribution to attend Valor.
For the 2018–2019 school year, Valor expects to award over $2,000,000 in tuition assistance.
The admission process and the tuition assistance process are completely independent of each other. Admittance to Valor is determined without regard to a family’s application for tuition assistance.
The tuition assistance committee reviews financial aid requests after all the following:
- A decision has been made to admit the student;
- The student’s family has signed and returned the enrollment agreement; and
- The non-refundable enrollment deposit has been paid.
The amount of tuition assistance awarded is based on the demonstrated financial need as determined by an assessment of the confidential financial information the family submits through FACTS Grant & Aid Management, an independent third-party verification service.
If a family is awarded tuition assistance, the funds are applied only toward tuition. The family is still responsible for all other incidental expenses including books, co-curricular fees, optional student activities and fee-based classes.
The online application for tuition assistance opens each year in December. Applicants are encouraged to gather all of their financial information and tax documents before beginning the application process. If there is a split or blended family, each parent is required to submit their information to FACTS. The fee to apply for financial aid is $30. It is non-refundable and paid via credit card or ACH directly to FACTS.
To ensure the greatest availability of funds, the deadline to complete the FACTS financial aid application is February 1. For all families whose students are admitted and enrolled after the initial deadline, tuition assistance requests will be reviewed upon full completion of the financial aid application process.
The tuition assistance committee typically begins meeting in February to review and consider all verified financial aid requests. The committee continues to meet pending the availability of funds. Recipients will be notified electronically of the committee’s decision.
If a family considers the tuition assistance award received to be insufficient to secure final enrollment Valor, they will be released from their enrollment agreement and their deposit fully refunded provided they request so in writing prior to the deadline noted on the tuition assistance award.
All financial information and documents are kept in the strictest confidence. Valor expects that each recipient of a tuition assistance award also keep the amount of their award private and confidential.
Families are required to update their financial information each year in order to be considered for a tuition assistance award. Awards are renewed each year subject to a student’s continued demonstrated need, the student’s academic progress and continued alignment with the vision and mission of Valor.
After completing the application process, please submit copies of the required documents directly to FACTS Management Company either by mail or electronic method.
