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 2023-24 school year, GDS allocated $9.2 million in financial aid to 23.9% of our students with an average award of $34,800.
Our financial aid application, available through a third-party vendor called Clarity, is separate from the Ravenna admissions application.
If you need support during the process of completing your application, there is in-app support available through the “Help” button in the bottom left of the screen, as well as email and phone support at email@example.com or 206-210-3752 in both English and Spanish. The application itself is also fully translated into Spanish. For more information, Clarity will be offering several optional webinars.
