Here at the Wayne Country Day School we strive to provide a world class education to our students. We understand that type of education requires a tremendous commitment of time, talent, and resources from our families. We are committed to making our school accessible to all families. We look forward to discussing financial aid, payment plans, or whatever questions you may have. Our goal is to make a WCDS education affordable for all those who seek it by keeping our tuition as low as possible through prudent management of our finances and our financial aid process. Currently, about 20% of our students receive some type of aid.
Our students go on to some of the most competitive colleges and universities in the world. They are exceedingly well prepared to not only graduate on time but thrive in whatever post-secondary environment they choose. In our Lower and Middle Schools, our students consistently perform well above grade level in math, reading, and social studies. In our school, students master the skills that make them successful both in college and beyond. In short, tuition dollars are an investment in your child’s future.
