At FASPS we strive to ensure our program is accessible to all families, and value socio-economic diversity in our community.
Twenty-four percent of our students receive financial assistance. The awards range between 5% and 90% of tuition.
Financial aid is available for qualifying families either through the School (U.S. families) or through the French government (French nationals). We encourage families to review the information provided in the links to the right, and to contact the school directly if you have questions. The financial aid review process is confidential and separate from admissions decisions.
If you are interested in receiving information regarding financial aid either from the French government or from the School, please contact Patricia Blaise-Caves, Director of Admissions, at 206.275.3533 x 275 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The financial aid program at FASPS is need-based. The financial aid committee will assess parental income, assets, liabilities and expenses. All new and returning students may apply for financial aid. The awards are applied to one school year. Consequently, families are required to reapply each year so that FASPS can make the necessary adjustments based on changes in circumstances or tuition.
Families should plan on a tuition increase each year as the cost of education rises. Through prudent financial management, and with a strong commitment to our families, we make every effort to keep these increases predictable and reasonable.

New Family Fee
A one-time New Family Fee will be invoiced in the amount of $1,800 upon receipt of the enrollment agreement. A new family is defined as a family whose children have not been previously enrolled in the School.

Financial Aid from the School
The deadline for applying for Financial Aid from FASPS is February 12, 2013.
A complete FASPS financial aid application includes:
- A complete FASPS Financial Aid Application Form
- Your 2012 tax return
- A SSS report
Like the majority of PNAIS schools, FASPS is using SSS (School & Student Service for Financial Aid), a national organization that will process your financial information and send us a report with a recommendation on an estimated amount your family can contribute toward tuition. This helps us make fair and objective financial aid decisions.
Therefore, we will need you to fill out the SSS Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) form online, as online applications have the advantage of being processed immediately upon submission. You will be able to fill out the the PFS form online starting November 1. FASPS school code number is: 2754. Click on the prompt to begin your Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS). You only have to complete one PFS for all children applying to our school and for all schools to which you are applying for financial aid.
A Few Basic Financial Aid Guidelines
If parents are separated or divorced, all paperwork, including tax documentation, is requested from both parents. FASPS may require copies of court documents and final decrees.
If all children of the home are of school age, the Financial Aid Committee will give priority to a family where both parents choose to work full time over a family where a parent chose to go to back to school or stay at home or work part time.
If other children in the home attend tuition-charging schools or colleges, FASPS will expect that the family will be applying for financial aid at all the schools.
If there are step-parents, the Committee will consider all partners’ financial information. Non-custodial parents must also submit financial aid information in order to provide a complete overview of the financial situation.
