Scholarships and Endowments

Charlotte Country Day School's endowment, like endowments at most independent schools, is a collection of various restricted and unrestricted endowment and scholarship funds. While endowments are established through sizable initial gifts, they may also grow through smaller, ongoing gifts from other supporters of the school.

Country Day's endowment funds provide financial assistance to qualifying students, support faculty salaries, and sustain curriculum and programs. Since 1941, Country Day has benefited from more than 55 named endowments established over the school's history. As of June 30, 2013, these endowments were valued at $39.3 million.

We are grateful to alumni, faculty, parents, grandparents, trustees, and friends for establishing the funds listed below.
