Financial Aid Program

Poughkeepsie Day School’s financial aid program provides assistance for qualified families to attend the school. Aid is determined and renewed on the basis of financial need. The financial aid program is used to reach out to students who are academically qualified regardless of their economic situation.

● Parents of students at all grade levels (Pre-K through Grade 12) can apply, however international​ ​students​ ​are​ ​not​ ​eligible​ ​for​ ​financial aid.

● Financial aid applications and awards are only determined after a student has completed the admissions process. A family’s financial need in no way affects a student’s acceptance by the school.

● PDS does not require repayment of financial aid awards; however, recipients must reapply annually. The size of the award may vary as the family’s financial circumstances change.
