An investment in early education has an impact that lasts a lifetime

The Green Vale School recognizes that investing in an independent school is a decision that requires considerable thought and planning. As a school we are committed to creating a community of learners and attracting families and students from across Long Island who will help enhance the vibrancy of the school. To make Green Vale more accessible, we have structured our tuition to be all-inclusive and created a  series of flexible payment plans, as well as a robust tuition assistance program.

Affording Green Vale

  • Flexible Payment Plans: In order to manage expenses, Green Vale offers its families a number of flexible payment options through SmartTuition. Tuition may be paid annually, semi-annually, or structured over 10 months, and deducted automatically from a checking account or credit card.

  • Financial Aid: Green Vale offers tuition assistance to qualifying families. Information regarding our tuition assistance policies and procedures may be found below. 

  • 529 Plans: As of 2018, the IRS now permits up to a $10,000 per year distribution from 529 accounts in order to finance private school education (K-12). Please consult your financial advisor to learn more.

Starting in November, once accepted, families who would like to be considered for Financial Aid may submit an application through the School and Student Services (SSS) platform. The information included in the SSS application will provide the School’s Financial Aid Committee with a recommendation on how much a family can contribute. All awards are made on an annual basis and Families pay all incidental expenses and any tuition not covered by the financial aid award. Contact the Business Office for additional information.

Recipients of financial aid are expected to meet the same standards of performance as all students and must demonstrate financial need annually. All information received by the Financial Aid Committee is held in the strictest confidence.

Tuition Insurance

In these uncertain times, many families want the peace of mind of knowing that the investment that they have made in school tuition is protected should unexpected circumstances occur. Families have the option of including Tuition Insurance through A.W.G. Dewar, Inc, for an additional monthly annual fee.
