Financial Aid Resources

Welcome! Please explore the new Financial Aid resources page to find important information and opportunities for families that receive financial aid.


Rye Country Day’s financial aid program provides opportunities to qualified students who would otherwise be unable to attend the School. Our goal is to fund the demonstrated need of our admitted students and ensure that they can participate fully in all programs and activities offered by the School.

RCDS believes that parents/guardians have the primary responsibility in funding a secondary school education. Only after available parent/guardian resources have been examined and utilized will the School offer financial support. The goal of the financial aid application process is to garner the fullest understanding of all financial resources that may be available to a given applicant. At the same time, the School considers its program to be generous and supportive. The School acknowledges that cost of living factors are significant in our region, and the Financial Aid Committee also considers supplemental costs when considering and calculating our grants. The Financial Aid Committee believes it is crucial to recognize the additional school-related costs that families absorb beyond tuition when they decide to attend RCDS.
