Affording Long Trail
Domestic tuition for the 2020-21 school year is $19,860.
There are many options for families to fund their tuition including school choice town vouchers and financial aid. Over 60% of Long Trail students receive financial support.
Vermont School Choice
Families residing in in Dorset, Manchester, Rupert, Pawlet, Danby, Londonderry, Middletown Springs, Rutland Town, or other towns that do not have a municipal middle or high school, a significant portion of tuition is paid for by the town. To learn how much your town may contribute to your child’s education, click here.
The Bennington-Rutland Supervisory Union requires two forms to be completed in order for families to receive the town tuition voucher. The Tuition Request Form must be completed yearly. The Declaration of Residency needs to be completed by families new to the area or who live in Winhall.
Dorset, VT Residents
In the spirit of community, Long Trail accepts the Dorset town tuition rate for grades 9-12 as full tuition payment. So, high schoolers residing in Dorset have the opportunity to attend with zero tuition owed after receipt of their school choice voucher.
New and returning families that intend to apply for financial aid do so though TADS. Once the application is complete and audited, the TADS calculator determines the amount a family can contribute to tuition.
