Financial Aid

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 (SSS) as well as documentation provided by the family.

The School uses SSS data and household income/assets guidelines to assess annually each family’s ability to pay for education. The School makes 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. The School notifies applicants of financial aid decisions before expecting a binding reply to the offer of enrollment.

French Government Scholarships

French Government scholarship applicants also need to complete the school Financial Aid process. Parents/guardians should complete the PFS form by December 16, 2017. Please contact the Financial Aid office with any concerns related to the Enrollment and Financial Aid processes as soon as they arise.

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