Your Support Matters

A place of transformative learning

We need your help to continue educating future innovators, leaders, and problem-solvers.

The spirit of giving is fundamental to Chicago City Day School’s culture of kindness. From the School’s founding in 1981 to the present, our donors — parents, grandparents, faculty, alumni, staff, and friends — have made sure that City Day continues to grow and thrive. Their generous gifts have made possible the remarkable School we know today: a uniquely transformative environment where children embrace learning with joy and confidence.

City Day is a nonprofit institution, and tuition alone cannot sustain our dynamic program, experienced faculty, and superb facilities. Your contributions are critical to closing the gap between tuition income and the cost of educating our students.

We are truly grateful for our community’s extraordinary past support. Please help carry forward this proud tradition of philanthropy and make a gift to City Day.
