Financial Aid

SCDS strives to maintain a student population that represents all socio-economic backgrounds. Financial aid provides assistance to families for whom, without such assistance, a Seattle Country Day School education would not be an option. Financial assistance is based on family financial need, and does not need to be repaid. Recipients must reapply for financial aid each year. Admissions and financial aid decisions are made independently. Admissions decisions are made based on whether SCDS is best suited to meet a student's educational needs. 

If testing is a hardship for your family, or you would benefit from an application fee waiver, please email Kate Briscoe, Director of Admissions, or call her at 206-691-2625. 

The level of financial assistance depends on a family's ability to pay and each family's circumstances are different. Many factors beyond income are taken into consideration when making financial aid decisions. Please see Financial Aid Policy and Procedure.

If you have questions or need assistance with the financial aid application process, please email Liane Yuh, Director of Financial Aid, or call her at 206-691-2631.
