Tuition & Payment Plans

To Be Considered for Enrollment at Virginia Chance School After touring, your first step in the admissions process is to submit an Application for Admissions and $115 application fee per child and additional papers referenced on the Application & Registration insert. Forms provided by the school are in your tour packet.

When Enrollment Decisions are Announced at Virginia Chance School Upon receiving a response 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). 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.

Tuition Payment Plans

The annual tuition balance is paid in full by June 1. Tuition Refund Plan is optional.

Plan 2 – Two Payments
60% of the annual tuition paid by June 1.
40% (less the registration fee) paid by December 1.
A tuition Refund Plan is required.

Plan 3 – Twelve Payments
Twelve monthly payments, including a 5% monthly service fee, with the first payment due June 1. 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 3% 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.
