Commons Fund May 2020 Update: The Emergency Financial Aid Fund
At the core of Vermont Commons School is the incredible connection and collaboration between students and faculty, and in these times it is crucial to support members of our community who’re being impacted by Covid-19. All contributions to the Commons Fund at this time are being directed to our Emergency Financial Aid fund to support families who can no longer afford their tuition payment because of income or work lost due to the coronavirus. Please consider making a gift today to ensure that every VCS student enrolled in the 2019-20 school year is still enrolled at Vermont Commons in 2020-21!

VCS and the Edward E. Ford Foundation Grant for Refugee Students
For the last three years, Vermont Commons School has been the recipient of a $50,000 grant from the Edward E. Ford Foundation. This grant, and $50,000 in matching gifts, has underwritten a program to create access for three Refugee students to attend Vermont Commons School for the four years of high school and then college. “Many Refugee students are recruited to local colleges on athletic scholarships,” says Head of School Dexter Mahaffey, Ph.D. “Often, however, they are not prepared for the rigors of college academics and end up dropping out. College preparation is what we do here at Vermont Commons School. We joke that our sport of choice, so to speak, is Varsity Academics.”
Congratulations to Finn V., Class of 2022, on the production of his original play in this year's Vermont Young Playwrights Festival!
