We appreciate that a Teton Valley Community School (TVCS) education is an investment for every family. Our admissions decisions are always made need-blind, without regard to a family’s financial situation. However, some families may find the need to apply to receive tuition assistance to assist them with funding an education.
Through tuition assistance and payment plans we make every effort to make education affordable. Over 50% of elementary students receive tuition assistance, reflecting our commitment to maintaining a diverse student body and helping ensure that a TVCS education is available to families regardless of the ability to pay.
TVCS has a need-based tuition assistance policy and for a school our size, we award a substantial amount of tuition assistance each year. However, it is important to remember that an independent school education is a choice for families. Both the school and the families make significant financial sacrifices to support this choice. Our policies and philosophy attempt to ensure that each family is subject to the same guidelines as we evaluate the needs of your family relative to the needs of other families in our school.
The deadline to apply for tuition assistance is January 31, 2017. Once the deadline is passed, families can still apply for assistance, with the understanding that little or no tuition assistance may be available. The tuition assistance program requires a family’s previous year’s completed taxes so the first step a family can take in the financial aid process is to complete personal and/or business taxes.
All inquiries, applications, and supporting documentation with regard to tuition assistance are treated confidentially.

The school cannot refund tuition or cancel unpaid obligations if your child is forced to withdraw during the academic year.
