If you have questioned the affordability of an independent school education, we invite you to learn more about the financial aid program at York Country Day School.

YCDS offers need-based financial aid grants to families who qualify. For many families, these grants make it affordable to have their children in a school where they are encouraged to pursue intellectual promise.

Approximately 35% of YCDS students receive need-based financial aid. By making YCDS affordable to more students with a wide variety of talents and perspectives, our financial aid program helps us to build a robust and diverse school community where students can thrive academically and socially.

Contact Hannah Holliway in the Admissions Office at 717-815-6714 or hholliway@ycds.org to talk about financial aid for your family.

Below are some valuable resources from the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) to help families better understand independent school financial aid.
