The Vanguard School is an independent 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization.In order to make The Vanguard School possible for our families, the price we charge for full tuition does not actually cover the total cost of a Vanguard education. Education for students with complex learning differences requires smaller classroom sizes and greater resources than a typical school classroom. This expense is another reason why other schools cannot adequately meet our students’ needs. Our annual campaign helps bridge the gap between expenses and tuition.
Our student body is inclusive. We offer need-based scholarships of various sizes in order to serve students from all backgrounds. We believe the right student for Vanguard should not be denied this opportunity for an education due solely to insufficient family funds.
Social skills are a challenge for some of our students, and some have school anxiety after a long history of being bullied at other schools. Immersion in a boarding school environment allows students to bond as friends and family. As a boarding school, our costs also include residential staff and 24-hour, 7-day a week, operational expenses. We need you in order to make this possible.
We are a non-profit organization dependent on your annual campaign gifts. With your help, we’re able to maintain our high standards and continue raising the bar.
