  • Our Financial Aid Policy

    Education is an investment, and families should expect to contribute to the cost of their child’s education. A Vermont Academy education offers students the opportunity to be known, inspired, supported, and part of something bigger. We are committed to providing an outstanding student-centered experience where the values and student outcomes are tangible.

    Approximately 40% of Vermont Academy students receive financial aid, totaling 3.5 million dollars in awards annually.

    Financial Aid grants are determined by a family’s demonstrated need, the merit of the applicant, and many other factors, after thoughtful consideration by the financial aid committee. To fairly and objectively determine a family’s demonstrated need, Vermont Academy partners with School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS), a third-party financial aid assessment organization. Each family completes a Parents’ Financial Aid Statement (PFS) and submits it to SSS by NAIS for Parents.

    Families should request to have their PFS sent to Vermont Academy (School Code: 7936).
    Although Vermont Academy benefits from a considerable financial aid budget, there is no guarantee that the full amount a family qualifies for will be granted in financial assistance.
