Tuition & Financial Aid

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.

A non-refundable deposit is required upon enrollment each year. This includes a $150 PRO Activity fee and 10% of tuition for all programs except Kindergarten.

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.
