Eastern Point Day School
Pre-K to 8th Grade
Our reasonable tuition makes an independent school education attainable for most North Shore families. Our tuition is less than half the cost of most North Shore independent day schools. But we know sometimes tuition assistance may be needed. Any family can choose to apply for financial aid through the school's affiliation with the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).

EPDS is also pleased to offer both full and partial tuition scholarships for qualified students. The scholarship awards will be a 25% or greater reduction of the student’s tuition.  We encourage families to complete this brief application and visit Eastern Point Day School to see if the school is the right fit for your child and family.
