Tuition & Payment Plans

To Be Considered for Enrollment at Virginia Chance School After touring, a link is provided to submit an Application for Admissions and $115 application fee per child is collected electronically to submit the application for review.

When Enrollment Decisions are Announced at Virginia Chance School Upon receiving an acceptance to your child’s application, please secure your child’s enrollment by paying a non-refundable $800 registration fee (or a non-refundable $200 registration fee for Elementary financial aid applicants). If you are put on a waitlist your registration fee is only due at time of full acceptance, but please note that your reply time from waitlist acceptance is shortened as we must move to the next acceptance quickly. So waitlist waits can be long but the time to perform will be short. The $800 yearly registration fee goes towards the tuition amounts shown below.
NOTE: 12 Monthly Payments Plan: school is in session for approx. 9.5 months- please carefully consider additional summer expenses if choosing this payment plan because tuition payments will pull over the summer while school is not in session. Many of our families need care over the summer like our Chance Summer Under The Trees summer camp which will be an additional expense over those months. Other Payment Plans include once annually or bi-annually.

A tuition Refund Plan is required.

Tuition Refund Plan
Virginia Chance School partners with Dewar Insurance to offer the Tuition Refund Plan (Tuition Insurance) as a means to ensure your annual financial obligations. Parents paying tuition in full have the option of participating in the Tuition Refund Plan; families who do not pay the total annual charges by June 1 must take part in the Tuition Refund Plan. Fees are a 2.6% percentage of the tuition amount for which families are responsible at the time of enrollment. The Tuition Refund Plan is not a full refund of the total cost but a percentage of the monthly payment. The signed enrollment contract is binding as of June 1, at which time parents are liable for the school year’s entire tuition.
