2021- 2022 All- Inclusive Tuition Schedule
At Friends, we've created a rich, engaging curriculum designed to challenge and develop students at every level. Our hope is that each year, parents that invest in a Virginia Beach Friends School education feel as though this is the best investment they've ever made. For the 2021-2022 academic year, VBFS is introducing a new tuition model. The tuition below is inclusive of every fee and cost for an independent school education. Families will be responsible for the tuition, and will not be asked for any additional costs throughout the academic year, such as school supplies, field trips, Chromebooks, textbooks, school activities, etc.

Financial Aid – VBFS offers tuition assistance based on demonstrated need and other significant considerations determined by FACTS, the School's financial aid database.

In addition, financial assistance is not available for the Cottage and Early Childhood tuition.
