The maximum amount of the award is up to 50% of the cost of tuition only. All other fees are charged at the full rate. AISZ derives operating funds almost entirely from the collection of tuition and fees. Tuition and fees are subject to annual increases and a prospective family is urged to consider this when considering applying to AISZ and the long term goals of the education of their children.
Yes. Two children from each family will be allowed financial assistance, if approved. Priority will be given according to age and will start with the oldest child.
Yes. A family's situation can change from year to year so the application must be completed annually.
If a family’s financial situation does not change from year to year then it is possible the award will stay the same. However, this also depends on number of applicants and the Budget.
FA is determined through FA selection criteria and the analysis of a family's financial resources including both income and assets. Our goal is to determine the amount of money a family can contribute to educational expenses. Factors such as family size, number of children in tuition-charging schools, and cost of living expenses are all taken into consideration when determining a family's FA award. AISZ uses a web based application from the National Association of Independent Schools and more information can be found at sss.nais.org/parents.
An application must be completed by each parent or guardian in either of these situations. You can fill the request jointly or separately.
The deadline is imperative and if missed then an application will not be considered. However, families who are enrolling at AISZ mid-year, after deadlines published on the web page, are eligible to apply provided they meet all application requirements. The last deadline to apply and meet all application requirements is September 15 for the current school year.

Only if a family appeals a decision, otherwise no. FA decisions are made by the Financial Assistance Committee which is appointed by the School Board and consists of the Business Manager, Upper School Principal, and Lower school Principal.
FA at AISZ is funded via tuition waiver. The current level is set at 12% of the schools operating budget and is reviewed annually by the School Board.
In the first year of attendance, when applying for admission, a family may also apply for FA. Awards will depend not only on financial need, but also availability within the scope of the budget. The award must be determined before the child can start attending classes and the acceptance letter must be issued. Applications for FA will not be considered if received after the child starts.
