Everyone Should Experience an Education with Balance

The benefits of a CDS education are exceptional, but we understand it is a significant financial investment to join and remain a part of our community. As a result, and thanks to the generosity of our donors, funds are available to help make an education with balance a reality for families in need of financial assistance.

Like most independent schools in Ontario, CDS is funded 100 per cent through a combination of tuition fees, endowment earnings and annual fundraising and operates as a not-for-profit organization. In order to help you budget for a CDS education for your child, on this page we have outlined the expenses that you can anticipate and the financial resources available here at our school.

If, at any time during the Admissions process you would like to discuss your family's specific scenario, please contact the Office of Admissions to arrange a personal and confidential consultation.

  • Bursaries

    Bursaries are awarded based on financial need, include an independent third party review and are confidential.

Land Acknowledgment

The Country Day School wishes to recognize and acknowledge the land on which the school operates. Our nearest Indigenous Nations are now the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and the Chippewas of Georgina Island. The Dish with One Spoon Wampum covenant is often cited as an example of the shared responsibility for caring for these lands among the Huron-Wendat, Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee peoples who would call these their traditional territories. CDS respects the relationship with these lands and recognizes that our connection to this land can be strengthened by our continued relationship with all First Nations, by acknowledging our shared responsibility to respect and care for the land and waters for future generations.
