We know that the cost of a Georgetown Day School education is a significant investment for any family — and we firmly believe that the habits of excellence, engagement, and advocacy students develop at GDS make that investment invaluable.

Financial Aid

The cost of educating a student at GDS exceeds our tuition amount by several thousand dollars, and we supplement the difference for all families by drawing on annual giving and endowment resources. Depending on their unique financial circumstances and need, our enrolled families pay anywhere from $500 to our highest tuition amount. For the 2018-19 school year, GDS allocated $6.5 million dollars in financial aid to 24% of our students, with an average financial aid award of nearly $25,000.

Our financial aid application, available through a third-party vendor called TADS, is separate from the Ravenna admissions application. You can access the application via TADS. The financial aid application deadline for prospective families is January 10, 2020.
