Affordability

Tuition Adjustments

 

The Schoolhouse has an ongoing commitment to affordability and community diversity. Since not every family can afford full tuition, we provide aid by adjusting families' tuition costs, based on their calculated need. More than a quarter of Schoolhouse families have their tuition costs reduced each year. Applications for a tuition adjustment can be accessed online. Preschool families must apply for Child Care Subsidy funds first, before requesting a tuition adjustment.

Afterschool families may also receive Act 166 funds and Child Care Subsidy funds but are not eligible for any other adjustments to their Afterschool costs.

Act 166

Guardians of 3 and 4 year olds may be eligible for Act 166 funds to help with the cost of tuition. You should contact your local school district for more information and to apply. General information can be found here. The Schoolhouse does not provide an application for these funds and is not involved in the application process.

 

Child Care Subsidy

To learn about and apply for child care financial assistance through the State of Vermont, call the Child Development Division (CDD) (800) 649-2642 or (802) 241-3110 or click here. The Schoolhouse does not provide an application for these funds and is not involved in the application process.

Sibling Discount

The Schoolhouse offers a 10% discount for families with more than one child enrolled. Each enrolled sibling after the first enrolled child will receive the tuition discount. A sibling must be enrolled full time to receive the discount. If there is a difference in tuition between siblings, the discount will be taken from the lesser tuition.
