Being able to watch our daughter become bilingual and learn how to read and write and think bilingually... I think is well worth it.
Shari Bierly, FASNY mother
FASNY offers a unique education based on the acquisition of two languages and two thought systems and the openness to multiple cultures. This mission is supported by programs tailored to each child’s needs, which are expensive to operate. Our tuition is therefore considered by our parents as an investment in their child’s future.
We offer financial aid and welcome donations which help us to keep FASNY socially and economically diverse.

French nationals must apply for AEFE's aid to be qualified for any aid from the School.
Countries other than France may offer aid to their citizens. Please check with your consulate for further information.
Individual requests for reduced tuition are awarded on the basis of demonstrated need. Aid also may be granted to current students based on other criteria, which includes, but is not limited to, academic achievement, participation in extracurricular activities, and good citizenship.
Reduced tuition rates ensure that FASNY retains students from families who would otherwise have left the school due to their inability to pay the full tuition.
The Board of Trustees constantly seeks to strike the proper balance between sound financial policy and economic diversity.

There are three sources of funds for school financial aid Budget:
Budget: for 2016-2017, the school has allocated $1,756,126 of its budget to financial aid.
Olivia Tucker Scholarship Fund: the Olivia Tucker Scholarship Fund commemorates the life of a FASNY alumna, who passed away in 2006, and helps promote our School's diverse spirit by providing the FASNY experience to students who may not otherwise be able to attend. This is an Endowed Fund, which generates investment income, partially reinvested and partially spent on scholarship programs. In 2016-2017, $ 10,057 investment income was added to the financial aid budget.
Fund For FASNY Financial Aid: All the scholarship donations go directly into the Financial Aid budget. Most schools do not fund financial aid directly through donations. Instead, they allocate a set percentage of the expected tuition revenue. Making a gift to the Scholarship Fund allocates the full amount of the donation toward the Financial Aid budget. In 2016-2017, the total donations received were $90,065.
