We believe that the cost of a PCD education should not be a deterrent to any family, regardless of income. We know that the published cost of tuition can make it seemingly impossible for many families to consider independent schools as an option, and we have worked hard to change that perception.
At the Providence Country Day School, we believe that the advantages of an independent school—especially those at PCD (small class size, individualized instruction, abundant opportunities for leadership in the classroom, arts, athletics, and the community), should be available to as many academically qualified students as possible. That is why financially qualifying families may be able to take advantage of financial aid, designed to increase access and give families the opportunity to pay according to their demonstrated need.
- What does a completed PCD financial aid application consist of?
- Does PCD offer scholarships?
- If we apply on time, are accepted for admission, and qualify for financial aid, do we automatically pay the tuition for which we qualify?
- If we receive financial aid the first year, do we pay at the same level in subsequent years?
- If my child enrolls at PCD without financial aid, can we apply for financial aid in subsequent years?
- If parents are divorced, who must submit financial information in order to apply for financial aid?
