Affording Vistamar

Introducing “Moderated Tuition”—Vistamar’s exceptional take on financial aid.

We at Vistamar are deeply committed to working with qualified students from all socioeconomic backgrounds to assist with tuition costs. To do this, we’ve developed a robust, need-based program we call Moderated Tuition. Many schools refer to these programs as financial aid, but Vistamar’s program is preferable because it serves a wider variety of family circumstances including families who have moderate need. The chart below illustrates the range.
