Tuition and Financial Aid

Tuition

Tuition for the 2021-22 school year is $23,800.

Younger siblings receive a 10% tuition discount while their older sister is enrolled.

Payment Options

Villa Maria offers a number of different payment options. Tuition is paid through FACTS, a tuition management service. Payment options include monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, and annual plans.

529 Plans

Parents with 529 savings plans may now use those accounts to help pay for K-12 tuition at an elementary or secondary public, private, or religious school up to $10,000 per year, per beneficiary. Account owners can treat qualified K-12 withdrawals as qualified expenses for federal and Pennsylvania state tax purposes. To learn more about 529 plans, see the PA 529 website.
