Tuition & Fees



Please contact the NVS Business Office at (434) 846-0301, Ext. 13 for the current tuition rates.


The administration encourages families to apply for admission even if they have questions about their ability to afford the total tuition.

The Business Manager works confidentially with parents/guardians to determine need and available funding. Tuition Assistance Awards are made by the Scholarship Committee. In 2016-17, approximately 80% of NVS students received support and/or tuition assistance in some form.


Once a student has been accepted for admission the Tuition Assistance process can begin. The Scholarship Committee will review the applications after the following information is received.

  • A Confidential Tuition Assistance Application (available by contacting the NVS Business Office) will need to be completed and submitted along with supporting documents.
  • Applicants are also required to complete an online financial statement via an online service. A modest processing fee must be paid to the online service upon submission of the application.
  • All forms should be submitted as soon as possible as Tuition Assistance funds are limited. Awards are on a first come first served basis.



In 2001, the New Vistas School Board of Directors established an endowed fund, created by Rosel and Elliot Schewel, to honor New Vistas founder and Head of School Lucy Guggenheimer Ross. The fund provides a perpetual honor for Ms. Ross and contributes annually toward tuition assistance for those families in financial need. Administered by The Greater Lynchburg Community Trust, this living fund is open for unrestricted contributions to support current and future NVS students. Those wishing to donate to this fund may contact the Trust at 434-845-6500.
