School’s out for summer! While most families have shifted from school mode into summer camps, vacations, and visits, now is the perfect time to reflect on another completed chapter of learning, while getting ready for the next one.

To celebrate the summer break, and to reward families for saving for the future, Virginia529 is helping families jumpstart their savings AND capture some of peace of mind they seek amid rising college costs.

The Tuition Track Portfolio is part of the highly rated Invest529 program as an exclusive option for Virginia residents.  The portfolio tracks average tuition growth at Virginia public universities (Average Tuition) and savings keep pace with tuition increases.
