Covenant Day offered the best of both worlds in my academic and athletic endeavors. I was blessed with teachers and coaches who were passionate not only about my growth in the classroom and on the court, but also my spiritual growth."

Covenant Day School Financial Aid

IMPORTANT: Beginning with the 2024-2025 school year, families must provide documentation showing they have APPLIED for the NC Opportunity Scholarship to be eligible for financial aid from Covenant Day. 

Covenant Day has established a financial aid program to assist families with demonstrated financial need. The CDS Financial Aid Committee accpets applications throughout the year. A new application must be submitted each year that assistance is requested. The online application process requires applicants to submit to a comprehensive assessment of their financial situation. This assessment is administered confidentially and with the assistance of FAST, a service of Independent School Management. For more specific information about financial aid at Covenant Day, please download the 2024-2025 Financial Aid Information Packet. Parents desiring financial assistance should complete the financial aid application process concurrently with the admissions application process. If you have other questions about the financial aid process or need assistance applying in the current school year, please contact Christen Marshall, CDS Student Accounts Coordinator, at 704-708-6102.
