Tuition & Financial Aid

As a not-for-profit school, all revenue received goes into making our school even better.

View our tuition + fee information here, in English. Or, view our frais de scolarité, en Français.

French American + International offers two payment plans designed to meet the budgetary needs of our families:

1) The FACTS Plan utilizes the services of FACTS Tuition Management Company to offer monthly payment options. Click here to set up your FACTS payment plan. To view instructions & information about setting up a FACTS Plan, click here.

2) The Advance Plan offers a discount for cash payment.

Families must select a plan at the time of enrollment. There are two non-refundable fees due with the enrollment agreement in order to reserve a student’s space in our school: a $1,000 Tuition Deposit, which is credited towards tuition, and a one-time $2,000 Enrollment Fee.

Need-Based Scholarships

Financial assistance is awarded on the basis of need and the potential family contribution as reported by the School and Student Service for Financial Aid as well as documentation provided by the family.

Our school uses SSS data and household income/assets guidelines to assess annually each family’s ability to pay for education. We make every effort to meet the demonstrated need of all admitted or enrolled financial aid applicants. However, resources are not always sufficient to meet the full need of applicants.

Due to the large number of families applying for Financial Assistance and the limited timeframe within which awards are to be made, it is critical that all documents be submitted according to the prescribed deadlines for returning and new students. We notify applicants of financial aid decisions before expecting a binding reply to the offer of enrollment.

All information provided during the Financial Aid process is kept in strict confidence.

French Government Scholarships

French Government scholarship applicants also need to complete our Financial Aid process. Parents/guardians should complete the PFS form. Please contact the Financial Aid office with any concerns related to the Enrollment and Financial Aid processes as soon as they arise.
