As a parent, you put so much time and effort into searching for the best learning environment for your child. You want them in a safe community — one where they will be known, seen, understood, and can achieve. You are aware that your child can easily fall through the cracks in a traditional school and want to make sure that doesn’t happen. Still, every family has budget considerations.

We aim to make a TDS education accessible to as many families as possible in the Tampa Day area. We recognize that affordability is an important consideration for parents.

TDS offers the following discounts: 10% sibling discount for families with 2 or more children attending TDS. 3% discount if parents pay tuition in full or in semi-annual installments.

Why Do Parents Choose TDS?

At Tampa Day School, we’ve been helping students in grades 3-8 with learning differences thrive academically and socially for over 50 years. Families who were previously overwhelmed by their child’s experience in school discover a new excitement about the educational journey. We make this possible through:

  • Intimate class sizes with 10-12 students, each of whom receive daily individualized support
  • Dedicated educators who tailor their teaching to meet the needs of a variety of learning styles and build up their students’ confidence
  • Academic support resources such as our research-based tutoring solutions, reading remediation, and developmental writing program
  • A variety of extracurricular activities, interest-based clubs, and sports
  • A culture of acceptance where each student is known, valued, and celebrated

My wish would be for all children to receive this high level of education that TDS offers, and not just academics. TDS offers love, support, friendship, and it’s like a beautiful and loving supportive home that you never want to leave!  We owe TDS a debt of gratitude. What they have done for our son was bring out in him self-assurance, security, a sense of belonging, strength and the notion that ‘he can do it.’  My son is better, brighter, positive and much more independent because of you all at TDS.
