Need Based Financial Aid

A Canton Country Day School education represents one of the most important investments in your child’s future. Canton Country Day School strives to make our education affordable by bridging the gap between what a family can afford and the actual cost of a Canton Country Day School education from kindergarten through grade eight.

We believe that the cost of a Canton Country Day School education should not be a deterrent to any family, regardless of income. We know that the published cost of tuition can make it seemingly impossible for many families to consider independent schools as an option. While we do not offer 100 percent full-ride scholarships through our internal financial aid process, we do offer assistance to families that qualify. Families generally are expected to contribute a minimum of 25 percent of their child’s tuition.

All financial aid awards are based on a family’s demonstrated financial need. In determining the extent of a student’s need, consideration is given to both the amount of support that may be expected from all family resources, as well as factors that affect a family’s financial strength, such as investment savings and other assets, number of dependents, debt and other educational responsibilities. Consideration will also be given to the family’s history of meeting prior financial obligations to the School. In addition, the financial aid committee will be assessing family involvement in school activities, volunteering and annual fundraising efforts.

A Financial Aid Committee reviews all information and determines financial aid award offers. This review and consideration is completely separate from the admission review and acceptance process. The Financial Aid Committee will not receive financial aid request information to review until the Admissions Office has accepted a student for enrollment at Canton Country Day.
