The Country Day School is pleased to announce the creation of the York Scholarship Bursary available to three incoming Senior School students for the 2017-18 academic year.

Through the generosity of an anonymous donor, CDS is offering up to three entrance scholarships to eligible Senior School students. These renewable scholarship bursaries will provide support for up to 65% of tuition and additional fees throughout the student’s high school career. They will be awarded to students based on financial need and a demonstrated balanced approach to academics, the arts and athletics.

Named after York Region, where The Country Day School has been located for the past 44 years, the York Scholarship Bursary will provide an incredible opportunity for three bright, engaged and dedicated students from any region to join CDS.

All applicants must complete and submit the full CDS admission application, scholarship application, and Financial Aid for Canadian Students (FACS) application by February 24, 2017.
