Tuition and Financial Aid


As the only area school accredited by NAIS and ISAS, Country Day is a unique learning opportunity for children in grades PreK-3 through Eighth. 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.

Tuition for the 2020-2021 school year is $6,775.

Alexandria Country Day School provides a Tuition Refund Insurance Plan through A.W.G. Dewar, Inc. Tuition Refund Insurance is required for all students. Tuition Refund Insurance for the 2020-2021 school year is $115.18.

Financial Aid
