Tuition is always a key concern of parents. The cost of tuition is set by individual schools, and varies widely. It is important to note that tuition does not necessarily cover all costs, and additional fees may apply for other resources or access to facilities at the school. Financial assistance of various kinds is sometimes available.
What Country Day School says about their tuition:
Our structure is that your tuition fee pays for core programs, salaries, facilities, and administrative expenses. On average, families can expect to pay approximately $1,000 to $3,000 in additional expenses per child above and beyond tuition each year. The actual cost per child will vary depending on the child's grade and participation in activities, programs and excursions.

Apply for financial assistance at The Country Day School
This school works with Apple Financial Inc. for processing financial applications To apply for a bursary at The Country Day School, families are required to complete a Financial Aid for Canadian Students (FACS) application through Apple Financial Services, an independent third party.
Apple Financial will review the information and make a recommendation to the School. The School’s Financial Assistance Committee then reviews the recommendation and determines the amount of bursary.
Families must apply for a bursary on an annual basis in order to demonstrate continued financial need. In order for a bursary to be renewed, the student must contribute as an active and positive member of the school community.
Unfortunately, not all requests for assistance can be accommodated and recommendations by Apple Financial are not a guarantee of a bursary. A family must be prepared to invest in their child’s education to a significant level.
Additionally, CDS offers a merit-based entry scholarships for students in Grades 9 or 10: the Eberts Entrance Scholarship.
