Davidson Day is committed to attracting and supporting students who bring academic excellence and exceptional character to our school. Each year we welcome exemplary students as Merit Scholars. Merit Scholarships are merit-based awards available for students new to Davidson Day’s Middle and Upper Schools and can cover up to $1,500 of a year's tuition.
For families who are able to demonstrate clear financial need (through a formal online application process which includes the requirement to submit completed copies of the last two years of tax returns and W-2's) Davidson Day School offers a Financial Aid program.
Financial aid is available only to students in grades 1 through 12. Awards are made at the sole discretion of the Financial Aid Committee and are determined by the amount a family qualifies for, the availability of funding from the school and the number of families applying for and receiving assistance. Financial Aid awards may cover anywhere from 5 percent to 95 percent of tuition fees. In some cases we have more families applying and qualifying for assistance than the school is able to financially support and we may not be able to fund every qualified applicant. However, we remain committed to working to help deserving students afford an independent school education.
