Inclusivity and diversity is at the heart of The French American Academy. Families can qualify for need-based financial aid through two sources :
01 – The French American Academy Scholarship Program
The School can offer financial aid to FAA students in all grades. The French American Academy Scholarship Program will consider the awarding of financial assistance through reduced tuition.
Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of demonstrated financial need and individual student merit, determined from a range of criteria, including academic achievement, participation in extracurricular activities and good citizenship.
Applications for French American Academy Scholarships will be considered on a non-discriminatory basis without regard to race, sex or nationality. The selection of Scholars will be made in the sole discretion of the finance committee of the school’s Board of Directors.
02 – The French government
Through the Agence pour l’enseignement français à l’étranger (AEFE) and through the French Consulate in New York City, the French Government grants financial aid to its citizens for students in grades Pre-K3 through 12. Only French citizens are eligible for this program. Applications are available in January online.
