Financial Assistance

Each year the Vanguard School offers a limited amount of financial assistance to applicants based on financial need. The amount of funding available each year varies, and any assistance given to students is only valid for the school year indicated. Families must reapply each year for financial assistance.

2018-2019 Applicants:

The Vanguard School is now partnering with School and Student Services (SSS) in its financial assistance process. Please click here for instructions on completing your online Parent Financial Statement (PFS) financial assistance application.

To begin your PFS Application, or to log in to an existing PFS Application, please click the following link: https//sss.secure.force.com/familyportal.

Please note that applications for financial assistance will only be reviewed by The Vanguard School's Financial Assistance Committee if and when the student has been offered enrollment to The Vanguard School. Also, SSS does not award financial assistance. All information provided to SSS is used by The Vanguard School's Financial Assistance Committee in determining financial need.
