City Day announces the Trustees Merit Scholarship Program

Chicago City Day School is proud to announce the 2021 Trustees Merit Scholarship Program, which provides financial awards to outstanding elementary students who want to attend City Day.

Students entering grades 3 through 7 in the fall of 2021 are eligible to apply for a scholarship. The qualifying exam will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 27, at Chicago City Day School. Register for the exam here

The Trustees Merit Scholarship Program is selective. It is designed to welcome accomplished, enthusiastic young people to the City Day community. The School launched the program last year.

“This scholarship program is a truly transformative opportunity for those students who qualify and for the School itself," Head of School Chris Dow said. "An ideal candidate is highly motivated, passionate about learning, and eager to contribute to a lively school community.”

The School will award scholarships based on exam performance, past academic achievement, and a family interview with School leaders. The scholarship amounts will be based on need, and they can range from $500 to the full cost of tuition at City Day.
