Financial Aid

Great News!  The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains is accepting applications for EITC scholarships for WVMS enrolled students from May until August 1, 2014 for the 2014-2015 school term.  Scholarships are available for Pre-school as well as K+ students through the Foundation.  To begin the application process, visit www.community-foundation.org and choose the appropriate scholarship category for your child(ren).  Fill in the online application and then mail, fax or email a copy of your federal tax return to the foundation.  Parents will be notified via email by the end of August regarding their child(ren)’s eligibility.

Financial aid is available outside of the EITC program as well.  This year WVMS will again utilize the online service of Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST) to process applications. FAST will be the standard submission format for all applications.

FAST does not decide whether financial assistance will be given or how much to give; rather FAST provides a need-based financial aid analysis service which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. All information from FAST is kept confidential. Results are reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee that will make determinations based on next year’s budget. The Head of School will then send financial aid offers to families.

As a reminder, you must reapply each year. To start the process, please do the following:

Following the above guidelines will help the school reach its goal of having award determinations made by March 15, 2014. While no financial aid procedure can be entirely equitable – there are simply too many individual factors and extenuating circumstances – this new process that has been selected should serve WVMS well. Among its many features will be the ability to further secure your financial data, and maintain the high degree of confidentiality that past recipients most appreciated.
