Tuition Payment Plans

Early Discounted Payment

For families of students at the full annual tuition amount, net tuition may be paid in full by April 1 with a 2% discount. The enrollment deposit is not discounted. This payment plan is not available for students at a reduced tuition amount.

Applying for flexible tuition

MVS uses a platform called Clarity to help assess families’ affordability when considering flexible tuition for students in grades K-12. Based on the financial information parents provide, Clarity calculates an estimated amount that a family can contribute towards tuition. MVS uses that estimated family contribution as a guide to making fair and balanced decisions about the net tuition amount that a family will pay.

Complete financial applications for returning families are due by February 1 each year prior to the year for which flexible tuition is sought. Apply early to ensure timely consideration.

Complete financial applications for prospective families are due either by February 1 or by the time the admissions file is complete if that’s later than February 1.
