Being able to watch our daughter become bilingual and learn how to read and write and think bilingually... I think is well worth it.

Financial Aid

The School offers aid, from N-grade 12, to children of all nationalities.

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.

If you are planning to file for school financial aid, please do so as soon as possible. The deadline to complete FASNY's financial aid application for the school year 2019-2020 is February 1, 2019.

Questions or concerns? Please contact Stéphanie Reyna (914-250-0412).

Step 2: Interview with the Financial Aid Office

After submitting the TADS application, families will be contacted to set up an appointment. During this meeting, we will review your financial aid application and all the supporting documents.

The School has limited resources for its financial aid program. We intend to allocate aid as fairly as possible to families in need. Please help us achieve this goal by being as precise and thorough as possible in preparing your application.

Please respect the deadline, and submit all requested documents and relevant information. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

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 which help us to keep FASNY socially and economically diverse.
