We make Country Day affordable because we understand that an independent and private school education can be expensive for many families.

We are Country Day. From 18 months to 18 years of age, we are uniquely designed to help cultivate a passion for learning and independent thinking that prepares children to become exemplary citizens, confident leaders, and the best versions of themselves. There are many wonderful school opportunities throughout the Greater Cincinnati area, but we know our program, people, and place are unique. Our tuition assistance and scholarship programs are intended to maintain the cultural and economic diversity of the student body while providing exceptional curricular and co-curricular opportunities to students who might not otherwise be able to meet the full cost of a Country Day education.

Cincinnati Country Day School provides a balanced experience that fosters students' personal and academic growth – because who they become is an important as the knowledge they gain.

Our tuition aid programs help shape the type of learning community we want our students to experience today and reflect the world in which they live tomorrow. Thus, the need for tuition assistance should never discourage a family from applying to Country Day.

In order to make Country Day more affordable to all students who are admissible, we offer need-based awards from kindergarten through grade 12 and merit scholarships from grade 3 through grade 12.

Each year we offer more than $4.5 million in financial aid and scholarships to 39% of our total student population. The average need-based award is $16,300 while the average merit based award is $8,400.

Students are admitted on the basis of their academic and personal qualifications. Requests for tuition assistance and scholarships are considered independently of the admission process.
