This tuition discount of 10% is available to every family with more than one child attending Capital Day School. It is applied after the registration fee and any tuition discounts; it is not applicable to PM Preschool fees.


After a contract fee paid by check, all billing can be done through the monthly Smart Tuition statement. Included in the tuition are materials and snack fees of $125 for preschool students and textbooks, consumables, and iPad usage fees of $300 for students in grades K-8. This allows families to spread those costs out as part of their monthly payments. Families may choose a 10-month or 12-month payment plan, or if the entire tuition is paid prior to May 31, 2019, a three percent (3%) discount is allowed. A $175.00 contract registration fee, included in the total annual tuition, is due upon submission of the enrollment contract.

Capital Day School offers financial aid to assist qualified students who otherwise would be unable to attend. Eligibility is based upon need as determined by the Parents’ Financial Statement and the Capital Day School Application for Financial Aid. The families of all CDS students are given the opportunity to apply for assistance.


As a member institution of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), Capital Day School utilizes NAIS’s School and Student Service for Financial Aid (SSS), a comprehensive financial aid services solution. SSS provides schools with an objective methodology for calculating a family’s ability to contribute to educational expenses. A family may access SSS online to complete the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS) financial aid application each academic year. The application fee is about $45.00. A copy of the previous year's Federal Income Tax Return, including all attachments, must also be submitted to SSS.


Applications of returning families are due by February 29th; new families should apply as soon as possible.
