Admissions: Tuition and Fees
The tuition schedule for the 2016/2017 school years is as follows:
The first child enrolled pays full tuition. A 5% rebate is offered to his or her siblings also enrolled at the French International School of Philadelphia.
The activity fee covers accident insurance, textbooks, workbooks and school supplies, classroom and art supplies, buses to field trips, tickets to performances, entrance fees to museums and other field trips sites and – for our pre-elementary students – juice and crackers. Tuition and fees do not cover extended day care, private lessons, treatment by a doctor, the cost of equipment damaged though carelessness or outdoor education overnight trips.
Full day school hours:
8:45 a.m. to 2:55 p.m. for PK3 and PK4
8:25 a.m. to 2:55 p.m. for grades K to 4
8:15 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. for grades 5 to 8
In addition to tuition and fees, families participate in annual giving. Tax-deductible donations supplement the difference between tuition income and the cost of providing excellent education for French International School students.
