Detroit Country Day School is committed to attracting a talented, mission-appropriate student body regardless of a family’s ability to afford our tuition. DCDS has a proud history of providing access to our school program, and guided tuition is our need-based financial aid program that realizes our commitment.
The Guided Tuition Program allows all families to apply for reduced tuition. The Guided Tuition level for each student is governed by our charge, the needs of our families and the budget of the school. While all families may apply, priority is given to students entering the Upper and Middle Schools before considering students entering the Lower School. The Guided Tuition Committee operates separately from the admission process and does not impact your child’s admission to the school. Current students applying for Guided Tuition must be in good standing with the school.
DCDS welcomes any family in need of financial assistance to apply for our need-based guided tuition program.
