Tuition & Financial Aid

Tuition is all-inclusive

We make every attempt to assist families in affording a Delaware Valley Friends education through access to a variety of need-based financial aid resources.

Financial Aid

Delaware Valley Friends School provides financial aid grants based on need.  Application for financial aid is managed through SSS by NAIS and may be made online at SSS by NAIS . There is a limit on funds available; an early application has a clear advantage.  Families who intend to apply for financial aid are encouraged to do so at the same time that they make application for admission to the school. 

If you have questions about the process, call Kathy Barry at 610-640-4150 ext. 2160.

OSTC (Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit) Scholarships Available

What does the Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit mean for you?

If your neighborhood school is on the Pennsylvania Dept. of Education  OSTCP 2014-15 List of Schools - whether or not your child currently attends that school - and your child fulfills the admissions requirements of DVFS, you may be eligible to receive scholarship funds for your child to attend Delaware Valley Friends School. DVFS is considered a special education provider, so the scholarship award and income eligibility requirements are broader than some other forms of financial aid.
