Tuition

Thank you for joining the hundreds of families at Episcopal Day School (EDS) who recognize the vital importance of a faith-based early childhood education. EDS is committed to providing the opportunity for students from various economic circumstances to enroll.

Recognizing that an independent school education is an investment and a major financial commitment, many potential families struggle with the question of affordability and sustainability. EDS understands this widely-held concern and is committed to keeping our program as affordable as possible with systems in place to offer assistance to as many students and families as the school’s budget will accommodate.

It is clear from student performance data, student surveys, parental feedback, and reports from teachers that EDS students are among the best prepared students, academically and otherwise, in high school. More importantly, our graduates credit their years at EDS as being the foundation for their success.
