How Financial Aid works at Park Day:

Applying for Financial Aid

We know that choosing an independent school education is an investment of both time and resources. For the 2021-2022 school year, full tuition is $30,900 for K-5, and $33,400 for Middle School. Tuition for the upcoming school year is set by the Board of Trustees annually in January. 

Our financial aid program helps ensure that students from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds can afford to attend Park Day. All financial aid awards are grants that do not need to be repaid. Approximately 40% of students receive financial support, with an average grant of $15,500. Grants range from $2,000 to 90% of full tuition. Park Day’s robust financial aid program ensures that the school enrolls a socio-economically diverse community of families. Once awarded, Park Day provides support to families each year, as long as financial need continues to be demonstrated. Families complete a financial aid application each year of enrollment and demonstrated need is evaluated through School and Student Services (SSS).
