Affording Upland

An Upland education may be more affordable than you think.

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.

Required Documents for 2024/2025 School Year:

  1. Completed Clarity Application
  2. 2022 1040 tax return with all relevant Schedules
  3. 2022 W-2s for all relevant parents
  4. 2023 W-2s and tax documents (when available)
  5. 2023 1040 tax return (if/when available)

Upland offers two unique tuition Payment Plans to help families better afford the cost of tuition. Payment Plan availability is subject to date restrictions. See below for details:

Full Payment Plan –
The NET Tuition (less Enrollment Deposit) is due by July 1st of your enrollment year. Any account that is paid-in-full prior to July 1 is eligible for a 1.5% Early-Full Pay Discount. If newly enrolling after July 1, the full payment is due within 10 days of the signed contract to be eligible for the Early Full Pay Discount

Monthly SMART Tuition Payment Plan –
The NET Tuition Balance will be divided into equal monthly payments and paid through the SMART Tuition system, a third-party tuition payment management system. Payments may begin as early as May of your enrollment year (max of 10 payments total), but the account must be paid in full before March 1 of the academic year in order for the student to be eligible to participate in end-of-year events.

Upland Country Day School is proud to offer the following discounts:

Early-Full Pay Discount

  • Any and all persons paying the full value of tuition by July 1, or for new and mid-year enrollments, paid-in-full within 10 calendar days of contract signing, will receive a 1.5% discount.

Multi-Sibling Discount

  • Full tuition for the first student, 10% discount for each additional student. A Multi-Sibling Discount is offered to families who pay in full for all children, regardless of payment plan selected. Families who receive financial aid, tuition remission, scholarship, or any other financial assistance from Upland for any child attending Upland do not qualify for the multi-sibling discount.

*Note: Families who have multi-siblings and pay full tuition by July 1 are eligible for both the Early-Full Pay Discount and the Multi-Sibling Discount .

There is a $2,000 per student enrollment deposit. 

Important Dates & Deadlines

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.

"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."
