Tuition and Financial Aid

Tuition

As the only area school accredited by NAIS and ISAS, Country Day is a unique learning opportunity for children in grades PreK-3 through twelve. We live our mission of providing a challenging learning environment where students become creative, innovative, future leaders. Students are allowed to express themselves in numerous ways- through art, music, writing, and play. Students are pushed to question and explore in all subject areas- learning not only content but how to learn. Our students consistently lead the way in the community- the personification of excellence in education. A Country Day education is an investment in the future.

Every January our Board of Trustees meets to discuss and determine the tuition for the upcoming school year.  As a school, tuition increases are necessary to address increasing costs, improve educational offerings and programs, address facility needs, and ensure we can hire and retain excellent teachers.  However, we always seek a balance between affordability for our families and the strategic needs of the school.

We have two campuses- Alexandria Country Day School serves students in grades PreK-8 on our main campus on Bayou Rapides Road and students in grades 8-12 on our University Academy on the LSUA Campus. Click below to see tuition prices for each campus.
