An Investment in education.
We are committed to making a VCHS education accessible to as many families as possible. We know a private school education is not inexpensive, but we believe the investment is truly worth every penny. Our qualitative and quantitative results prove it. VCHS graduates not only gain admission to their 1st choice colleges, but they succeed where they land. From a dollars and cents perspective, the VCHS class of 2023 received average Annual Merit Scholarships of $9,350 from colleges and universities where they now attend. All that to say, a VCHS education makes a profound difference on each student’s success trajectory.
We offer a FLEXible Tuition program that provides an affordable solution for families from a wide range of economic backgrounds who are unable to pay full tuition.
