Tuition & Financial Aid

At French International, we’re fortunate that tuition covers the majority of the School’s operating needs, including special expenses of being a language immersion school (faculty visas, working permits, and “expatriate benefits”). Financial aid is available to families who qualify.

Are you considering preschool or prekindergarten? With half- and full-day options (and starting as young as 2½ years old), French International can often be equivalent to the cost of childcare or daycare.

Two years ago, with the support of the Finance and Budget Committee and the Leadership Team, the Board of Trustees committed to increasing faculty and staff salaries to the Northwest Association of Independent Schools (NWAIS) 50th percentile by the 2024-25 school year. We have increased salaries by approximately $2M over the past two years to attract and retain the very best teachers and staff to work with your children each day and provide the robust learning experience that makes French International so unique. 


The purpose of financial aid at French International is to support the School’s mission by promoting student body diversity.

Anyone may apply for financial aid at French International. Awards are based on relative need. Due to the large number of applications submitted and an effort to assist as many families as possible, French International grants tend to be relatively small. Given the differing application timelines between French International-based financial aid and the French Bourse through the French government, families who are eligible for the French Bourse should complete both school-based and bourse applications as soon as possible. All applications are considered in the strictest confidence.

Types of Aid Available

  • French International-Based Financial Aid from School and Student Services: all French International families are welcome to apply
  • The French Bourse: Financial aid from the French government offered to French citizens
  • Immersion Student Scholarship: a dedicated $5,000 per year Immersion Student Scholarship for one student entering grade six who has attended other public or private language immersion schools in the local area

Non-Discrimination Policy

The French International School of Oregon does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, national or ethnic origin, disability, sex, religion, marital status, or sexual orientation in administration of its financial aid policy, or on the basis of any other characteristic protected by state or federal law.
