navigating rhcd tuition

We believe deeply that a Rocky Hill Country Day School education is an investment in your child, on both a family’s part and our part. This is a collaboration that helps us provide inspiring, life-changing educational experiences for all of our students. We offer exceptional academic and co-curricular programming under the guidance of some of the most talented faculty in their fields. We aim to be transparent with our costs and any additional fees, as well as our methods to help personalize each student’s tuition.

Personalized Tuition

At Rocky Hill Country Day School, our mission is to inspire each other to discover our full selves and use our wisdom for good. We endeavor to make Rocky Hill affordable for all families with students in grades K-12. This personalized approach allows us to work with each family individually and partner with them at a tuition level that is specific to each applicant.

We are proud to be one of the first schools in Rhode Island to use the Clarity Application to determine our financial partnership with families. The application and support features of Clarity are available in different languages for ease of use by all families. Please visit the Clarity application portal, or review the ‘How to Apply’ PDF, below.

The application typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete and you do not need your tax forms to start. Applications for financial assistance are due at the time of application and must be reviewed with a completed student application to be considered. Financial assistance decisions are announced to returning families in January, while new applicants are notified of their admissions and financial assistance decisions simultaneously.
