The discount is $3500 off the yearly rate for the third student and $5000 off the yearly rate for the fourth and any subsequent student.

Types of Tuition Assistance Available:

The purpose of tuition assistance at FASPS is to support the school’s mission by promoting diversity within our student body and community. We value socio-economic diversity and strive to be accessible to the widest range of families; our tuition assistance program reflects this essential principle. FASPS’s tuition assistance program is needs-based, and the awards apply to one school year. Families are required to reapply each year so that FASPS can make the necessary adjustments based on changes in circumstances or tuition.
  • Needs-based Scholarships: Tuition assistance is awarded on the basis of need and the potential family contribution as reported by FACTS Grant & Aid, as well as documentation provided by the family. FASPS uses data from FACTS Grant & Aid and household income / asset guidelines annually to assess each family’s ability to pay for their child’s education. FASPS makes every effort to meet the demonstrated need of all admitted tuition assistance applicants; however, resources are not always sufficient to meet the full need of applicants. Due to the large number of families applying for tuition assistance and the limited timeframe within which awards are made, it is critical that all documents be submitted according to the prescribed deadlines for returning and new students. FASPS notifies applicants of tuition assistance decisions before expecting a binding reply to the offer of enrollment.
  • French Government Scholarships: French citizens may be eligible for the Bourses Scolaires Françaises. The FASPS Tuition Assistance program may supplement the amount granted by the French government. Families may apply for both the Bourses Scolaires Françaises and FASPS Tuition Assistance. The FASPS Tuition Assistance application will only be reviewed once you receive the decision from the French government.
Applying for Tuition Assistance:
FASPS uses FACTS Grant & Aid to process tuition assistance applications. Using this trusted third party ensures the tuition assistance review process is objective and fair. To be eligible for consideration for tuition assistance:
  • A completed Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS), application fee, and all supporting documents must be received by FACTS Grant & Aid no later than the prescribed deadline (see below). Due to the number of families applying for tuition assistance and to the limited time frame within which awards are to be made, it is critical that all forms, including required tax returns, be submitted according to the prescribed deadlines. No grants will be awarded in the absence of supporting documents.
  • Currently enrolled FASPS families must be in good standing on all debt obligations to the school.
  • For students of divorced or separated parents, a PFS, an application fee, and supporting documents are required from all financially responsible parties.
  • It should be understood that lifestyle choices that result in increased expenses or decreased income cannot be underwritten by the Tuition Assistance Program at FASPS.
