Running a private institution generates many expenses so that we can provide students with excellence in teaching, learning, and research. Tuition dollars play a vital role in our overall budget to provide these services. AV has a commitment to financial aid and affordability for our students. Here are a few things to consider about investing in a AV education:

  • We award nearly $36 million in financial aid each year.
  • Merit scholarship programs reward academics, leadership, and commitment to service.
  • Our need-based financial aid helps families from across the economic spectrum be able to enroll and graduate without significant financial burden.
