Financial Aid and Scholarship Information

CVA acknowledges that cost is a factor for every family considering independent education, and therefore we take a proactive approach towards educating families about their financial commitment. The objective of the pages listed below is to give you what we feel is important information about a CVA investment. If you have any questions or concerns, you should always feel free to contact us directly or set up an appointment to discuss your financial partnership with CVA.

CVA is a memeber of FACTS Grants and Aid Assessment which assists schools in determining financial need through a standardized application and computation process. Log onto their website to get started:
