From Our Parents

"We can't say enough great things about Upland! We wish we would have transferred our son sooner! The Faculty has gone above and beyond to help him get integrated and I really appreciate the open and super responsive communication with us as parents. I never wonder what or how he is doing, as I feel like the faculty is looking out for him. I see a renewed curiosity in him and a drive to push himself, which better prepares him for his future." KV, Parent

Financial Aid

Upland is committed to enrolling outstanding students with consideration for each family's unique financial circumstances. 

Aid is only awarded to families with a demonstrated financial need. Awards are based on the family's ability to pay and the availability of Upland Country Day School's financial aid funds. Not all families who qualify for financial assistance will receive aid and may be placed into a waiting pool.

How To Apply for Financial Aid

Upland uses Clarity, an independent financial aid platform to help determine awards.

Clarity's user-friendly, intuitive, mobile-responsive application can be completed in one sitting in 15 minutes or less. Instead of scanning, uploading or mailing prior year tax documents, families simply complete an e-signature form, and Clarity can pull their verified 1040 directly from the IRS.
