Tuition & Financial Aid
At French International, we’re fortunate that tuition covers the majority of the school’s operating needs, including special expenses of being a language immersion school (faculty visas, working permits, and “expatriate benefits”). Financial aid is available to families who qualify.
Two years ago, with the support of the Finance and Budget Committee and the Leadership Team, the Board of Trustees committed to increasing faculty and staff salaries to the Northwest Association of Independent Schools (NWAIS) 50th percentile by the 2024-25 school year.
We have increased salaries by approximately $2M over the past two years to attract and retain the very best teachers and staff to work with your children each day and provide the robust learning experience that makes French International so unique.
Anyone may apply for financial aid at French International. Awards are based on relative need.
Given the differing application timelines between school-based financial aid through French International and the French Bourse through the French government, families who are eligible for the French Bourse should complete both school-based and bourse applications as soon as possible. Bourse applications must be submitted in order to be considered for school-based financial aid awards. All applications are considered in the strictest confidence.
