An early investment in education has an impact that lasts a lifetime.
We recognize that investing in an independent school education requires considerable thought and planning. The Green Vale community is bolstered by our record of attracting families from throughout Long Island who want to cultivate their child's academic and personal potential in an environment that is both stimulating and nurturing.
In addition to structuring tuition as all-inclusive, there are a number of other avenues to make Green Vale more accessible:

Flexible Payment Options 
Green Vale offers a number of flexible payment schedules through SmartTuition. Tuition may be paid annually, semi-annually, or structured over ten months, deducted automatically from a checking account or credit card.

529 Plans 
As of 2018, the IRS 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.

Tuition Assistance 
If you value the benefits of an independent education, but worry about the affordability, here are a few things you should know:

  • Applications for admission are considered on a need-blind basis.
  • Each year Green Vale awards over $1.5 million dollars in tuition assistance. 
  • Students entering Pre-Kindergarten through 8th Grade are eligible.
  • 19% of Green Vale families currently receive some tuition assistance.
  • All families contribute some portion of tuition. 
  • Recipients must demonstrate financial need annually.

Applying for Assistance 
Families seeking to be considered for financial aid must submit an application through the School and Student Services (SSS) platform. The information reported in the SSS application will provide our financial aid committee with a recommendation of how much a family can contribute. 

All information received is held in the strictest confidence. Families pay all incidental expenses and any tuition not covered by the financial aid award. 

Tuition Insurance 
Many families want the peace of mind of knowing that their tuition investment is protected should unexpected circumstances arise. Families may obtain tuition insurance through A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. for an additional monthly annual fee.
