Introducing Grant Initiative for New Students

Celebrating 15+ years of preparing our students for the most selective schools in Chicago, a Gold Coast Prep grant initiative has been established to allow new students to join our highly successful program.

Each grade, Kindergarten through Eighth, has six (6) grant awards available to eligible applicants:  two (2) $12,000 grants, two (2) $9,000 grants, and two (2) $6,000 grants.  Eligibility is based on positive teacher recommendations and grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

Financial Assistance

We strongly believe our GCP community is strengthened by the diversity of backgrounds, interests, and talents of our student body.  To that end, we are committed to helping families afford the timeless education that Gold Coast Prep offers.  If you feel your family needs assistance to pay for a GCP education, we strongly encourage you to apply for financial aid.  Acceptances are on a need-blind basis, so families may request financial assistance after receiving an offer for admission to our program.
