Tuition & Affordability

Country Day recognizes that while our families view tuition as an important investment in their children's future, it may be a stretch for some families. The School is committed to supporting qualified students regardless of a family's ability to pay the full cost of tuition. While a Country Day tuition ranges from $16,935 to $23,825, the average cost of educating a student is much higher. Thankfully, our parents, grandparents, alumni, and other donors continue investing in the future of the School to offset the difference through philanthropic efforts such as The Fund for Country Day, the Invest in Excellence Campaign, and Endowments. 

In addition to three flexible payment plans, Country Day offers need-based financial aid for first through twelfth grades, as well as several need-based and merit endowed scholarships. Additional information can be found below.
