Metairie Park Country Day School has a need-based financial aid program for students in Pre-K through Grade 12. About 20% of Country Day students receive aid. This program helps to bridge the gap between what a family is able to contribute and the full cost of tuition. The deadline for families to submit all financial aid materials in order to be considered for the 2019-2020 school year is February 15, 2019.
Financial need is not a factor in evaluating applications for admission, but new families should indicate on the admission application that they might apply for financial aid in order to receive information about this program.
Country Day uses the School and Student Services (SSS) by NAIS as its financial aid application provider. SSS recommends to Country Day an amount of financial aid to be awarded. All information is reviewed only by the Financial Aid Committee and is held in strictest confidence. Funds are awarded on a first-come-first-served basis; therefore, it is important to apply for financial aid in a timely manner.
