Affording Day School

As with most independent schools, Evansville Day School operates largely with tuition funds, along with Annual Fund giving, other fundraising efforts, and auxiliary revenue programs. Our tradition of diversity, inclusion, and accessibility is the cornerstone of our mission and core values, and we strive to make Day School financially attainable. In short, we work with mission-appropriate families to lower financial barriers to enrollment. From merit and school choice scholarships to need-based tuition assistance and other discount programs, we work with families on an individual basis to ensure the added value of a Day School education is widely accessible.
