Financial Aid
Parents of French students may be eligible for scholarships from the French government.

Terms and conditions: Scholarship is awarded on the basis of the financial need. It may cover full or partial cost of the tuitions. To be eligible, the child must be of French nationality, reside with their family (father or mother, guardian) in the consular district where the school attended is located, be registered as French nationals living abroad at the Consulate General of NY, turn three years old by the end of the calendar year and attend a school accredited by the French Department of Education.

In addition to scholarships only granted to French Nationals by the French Government, a Financial Aid program based on economic need is also available to all families.

Applications for tuition assistance are confidential and considered independently of the admissions process. Before applying for financial aid, students must be properly registered at the school and their accounts must be in good standing. French nationals must apply first for the French Government’s scholarships prior to applying for aid from the school. To help us make fair and objective financial aid decisions, we use School and Student Services (SSS) by NAIS as a trusted third party. SSS is a service of the National Association of Independent Schools used by more than 2,400 K-12 schools and other organizations across the country to help assess a family’s ability to pay school costs.

Based on financial information you provide, SSS gives us an estimate of the amount of tuition assistance you need. Our school has limited resources for this program, we may not be able to meet the level of assistance needed.

To be eligible for consideration, a completed Parents’ Financial Aid Statement (PFS) and all supporting documents must be received by SSS by NAIS by the 28th of February. FASP school code is 144899.

All applications are considered in the strictest confidence. The school will communicate its decision to each family shortly after receiving the SSS report.

To complete the PFS online, go to the SSS website. There is a $48 registration fee for this service, payable online on the SSS website. All supporting documents required can be uploaded directly to the SSS website.
