Education is your most important investment 

For most families, investing in an independent school requires careful financial planning. As a school, we seek to admit talented and motivated students, regardless of family resources.

We believe that economic diversity enriches the educational opportunities for all our families. Therefore, families who feel the full tuition cost is out of their financial reach should not hesitate to visit and apply to our school. 

 

One in four students at Kalamazoo Country Day School receives some type of financial aid. Last year, we awarded over $100,000 in financial aid. Financial aid is not a loan — you do not have to pay it back. Even many families earning over $100,000 qualify for financial aid. A Kalamazoo Country Day School financial aid advisor can help you navigate the process.
