Tuition & Financial Aid

Bilingual and multicultural students are:

  • better speakers,
  • better thinkers,
  • and better learners.

They have superior focus and are better able to tune out distractions. They score higher on IQ and standardized tests, even on subjects unrelated to language, like math and science.

Bilingual students have a more informed, enlightened, and empathetic view of people and culture, which makes them better citizens of the world.

FASP Need-Based Assistance Program

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) 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.

School and Student Services

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.

Key Dates

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.
