Annual Pay Discounts:
Families choosing to pay tuition in one payment by July 15 reduce their tuition by 2%.
The majority of our families choose this option and pay the balance of their tuition, after deposit, in 12 equal monthly payments through SMART.
Early Childhood Program and Flexible Spending Accounts:
If your employer offers a Flexible Spending Account, you may be eligible to pay all, or a portion of, your Early Childhood tuition (nursery/preschool) and aftercare costs with pre-taxed dollars. Age limits may apply. Check with your employer for details.
Full tuition is paid for the youngest child in the family. There is a 15% discount for the second youngest child, 25% discount for the third youngest, and 35% discount for the fourth and subsequent child(ren). The largest discount is applied to the oldest enrolled child.
The Erica and Frank Merkling Scholarship:
The interest from a generous endowment is used to cover up to 90% of tuition for one qualifying, new grade school student. Application procedures are the same as for Financial Aid. The scholarship was set up to follow the student throughout his/her academic career at HVWS, or until such time the family’s economic circumstances change. For this reason a new scholarship may not be available every year.
