The Valley School Financial Aid Program 
The Valley School financial aid program advances the mission of the school by supporting the cultivation of socio-economically diverse classrooms. Financial Aid is provided to families who demonstrate a gap between the amount their family can contribute to the cost of education and the actual cost of attending The Valley School.

Information About Financial Aid at Valley
Families requesting financial aid awards go through the financial aid process each year. Financial aid awards are based on each applicant’s unique circumstances. If you request financial aid, an enrollment contract reflecting financial aid will not be provided until all required financial aid documents have been received. All financial commitments to the school must be up to date to be considered for financial aid the following year. Financial aid allocation and management decisions are made by the Financial Aid Committee, comprised of the Director of Admissions and Community Relations, Director of Finances and Operations, and the Head of School.
Separated or Divorced Parents: Both natural parents are responsible for a child’s tuition and both their incomes need to be considered when evaluating the need for financial aid. If either parent has remarried or has a domestic partner, these adults should be included in the financial aid application as well.
Employment Status: In the case of parents who choose not to work when all children in the household are in grade levels at or above Pre-kindergarten, an annual salary will be estimated and factored into the SSS calculation. An explanation of circumstances will be requested on the financial aid application about the non-working parent’s plans for eventual employment.
Please see The Valley School Financial Aid Manual for additional information.
