Affording GCDS

At Country Day, we believe that our community is strengthened by the diversity of backgrounds, interests, and talents of our student body. We are proud of our history of helping bring the cost of a GCDS experience within reach for families from a range of socio-economic backgrounds.

GCDS offers approximately $11 million annually in need-based tuition assistance. 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 that develops academic skills, character, and a sense of personal accomplishment and pride. If you feel that your family needs assistance to manage the cost of a Country Day education, then we strongly encourage you to apply for financial aid. Below you will find helpful information about our Financial Aid Program.
