Tuition & Financial Aid

The Value of a Country Day Education

We understand that enrolling in an independent school is a significant financial commitment for many families. We aim to provide a variety of payment options to meet your family's needs. Financial Aid may be available to eligible applicants. We value building a community which reflects the cultural and socioeconomic diversity of our area.

Tuition & Payment Options

Payment Options

Specific information about tuition and fees becomes available each year in January for the following school year. Once a child has been accepted to CDS, a non-refundable enrollment deposit is required to secure a place in the program offered that will be credited toward the overall tuition fee.

The Country Day School offers a variety of payment options to suit your financial needs.

Annual Payment: Pay tuition in full. Due July 3rd.

Two Payment Plan: Pay tuition by semester. 1st installment due July 3rd (50%) and 2nd installment due December 3rd (50%).

Monthly Payments: Spread your tuition balance over 8 monthly installments. Paid in July, September, October, November, December, January, February and March.

Payments are managed online through Smart Tuition, with options to pay via bank draft, credit card, or check.

2019-20 Tuition

The non-refundable deposit required upon enrollment each year is equal to one monthly payment and applied towards tuition balance, in addition to a $100 PRO Activity Fee for the year. Please note that amounts listed below for program tuition paid in installments (either in 8 monthly installments, or twice in a 50/50% split as described on the payment options tab) plus the deposit payment equal the total annual tuition.
