Presbyterian Day School | Financial Aid

Financial Aid

Presbyterian Day School awards over $1.1 million dollars annually in financial aid based on demonstrated need.

There is no specific income that will automatically qualify a family to receive need-based financial aid at Presbyterian Day School. Income is only one consideration when determining eligibility for need-based financial aid. Other significant factors include, but are not limited to: family size; number of children in tuition-charging schools; and family assets.

Applying for need-based aid is the only way to accurately determine your eligibility for such financial assistance.
