All are welcome at The Country Day School.

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 result, and thanks to the generosity of our donors, funds are available to help make a CDS experience a reality for families who may need some financial help.

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 your CDS experience, on this page we outline 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 with a professional in our Business Office. Such a meeting presents the opportunity to go over the tuition schedule options and all anticipated expenses related to your child's grade and interests.
