In order to allocate need based tuition assistance wisely and fairly, The Village School uses the online FACTS service as the standard submission format and processor for all tuition assistance applications. The application process is straightforward and you may navigate in and out of the program, allowing you to complete an application partially and go back to it at another time. Customer service is available from FACTS at the following numbers:
Tuition Payment Plan: 866.441.4637
Financial Aid Application: 866.315.9262
FACTS does not decide whether tuition assistance will be given or how much will be given; rather, FACTS provides a third party, need-based tuition assistance analysis service, which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. The Village School Financial Aid Committee uses the analysis provided by FACTS to aid in making financial aid determinations. All information from FACTS is confidential. Because need is assessed annually, a new FACTS application must be completed every year.

If there are any special circumstances of which the School’s Tuition Assistance Committee should be aware, you may explain these circumstances on the FACTS application. The Village School Tuition Assistance Committee reviews the completed FACTS application and any related information and determines financial aid awards after a student has been accepted to The Village School. These decisions are sent out on a rolling basis. All awards are confidential. Upon accepting a tuition assistance award, families agree to keep the award confidential. Willful breach of confidentiality may require a review and potential repeal of the award.
