Affording GCDS

GCDS awards over $13.1 million in need-based tuition assistance to approximately 21% of the student body. It is our goal to make a GCDS education fit within your family’s unique budget. We want to partner with you in providing your child with an exceptional education. If you feel that your family needs assistance to manage the cost of a Country Day education, then we encourage you to apply for financial aid.
