Invest in your child’s Education at FASP
We understand that sending a child to FASP is a significant financial investment for a family. A number of options are available to help you meet the cost of our education.
Let’s take a closer look at each of these options below. We are here to assist you in understanding the process. Don’t hesitate to contact us.
FASP offers financial aid to qualified students based on demonstrated financial need. Demonstrated need is defined most simply as the difference between the school’s tuition fees and what the family can reasonably contribute.
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. To help us make fair and objective financial aid decisions, we use School and Student Services (SSS) as a trusted third party. SSS is a service of the Community Brands family 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.
SSS does not decide whether financial assistance will be given or how much to give; rather SSS provides a need-based financial aid analysis which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. Completed SSS applications are then reviewed by the school’s Financial Aid Committee, and financial assistance is awarded if need is demonstrated and as long as funds are available. Our school has limited resources for this program, please be aware that 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 no later than the 28th of February. FASP school code is 144899.
All applications are considered in the strictest confidence. Preliminary financial aid notification is targeted to be available by March 10.

There is a $51 registration fee for this service, payable online on the SSS website. This is a flat fee, whether you are applying for aid for one child or several children, and whether your children are applying to one school or several schools. All supporting documents required can be uploaded directly to the SSS website.
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 tuition. 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.
French nationals must apply first for the French Government’s scholarships prior to applying for aid from the school.
