Tuition, Financial Aid and Scholarships

The 2024-25 middle school tuition is $14,700 for the first child. A multiple child discount is available, reducing $250 for each additional sibling in grades K-12. At the time of registration, new Valley Catholic Middle School families with students in grades 6-8 pay $1,325 to guarantee their child’s place in the class ($325 registration fee and $1,000 tuition deposit). Both are non-refundable.

We use the tuition management company FACTS to evaluate financial need.

Tuition covers approximately 80% of the actual cost of a VCS education. Visit A Valiant Partnership to learn how tax deductible, charitable donations help keep tuition rates as affordable as possible.
