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 2020–21 school year, GDS allocated $7.3 million in financial aid to 24% of our students, with an average financial aid award of nearly $31,000.
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.
Late Application Process
Our application deadline for the 2021–22 school year was January 8, 2021. At this time, we are accepting late applications for admissions in fall 2021.
If you would like to move forward with a late application, you are welcome to submit the application and associated materials on Ravenna. Depending on timing, we may be able to review fully completed applications if they are received prior to March 5. However, we cannot guarantee that applications received after the January 8 deadline will receive a decision by our March 5 notification date.
