Tuition – All Programs

Tuition is due in full at the time of registration. However, in an attempt to make tuition payments more convenient for families, VAB parents or students may be eligible to arrange a monthly payment option with the school. The monthly payments are split into equal payments across 10 months no matter how many classes there are per month. These payment methods are available only to families whose accounts are in good standing and who do not have a history of missed or nsf payments. Tuition owing from previous years or terms are payable before registration is permitted for the following year or before student can continue in the second term. A NSF fee of $40 is due for every bounced cheque.
