Tuition Assistance

International School of Brooklyn is committed to enrolling students from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. Our need-based tuition assistance program is available to students in Pre-K 3 to 8th Grade and helps families bridge the gap between what they can contribute financially towards their child’s tuition and the full annual tuition fee. For the 2022–2023 academic year, ISB awarded over $2.7 million in aid to 28% of the student body. Financial assistance extends beyond tuition, as those who receive tuition assistance are also given proportionate financial assistance for non-tuition-related items such as the after school care program, summer program, and lunch program.

Applying for Tuition Assistance
International School of Brooklyn uses School and Student Services (SSS) to process tuition assistance applications. SSS, a service of the National Association of Independent Schools, guides parent(s)/guardian(s) in completing a Parent Financial Statement (PFS), which asks for information about income, expenses, assets, and liabilities. A completed PFS allows SSS to estimate the family contribution, the amount of discretionary income a family can be expected to pay toward tuition. The Tuition Assistance Committee uses that estimate, in combination with completed tax documentation, to determine need. The Tuition Assistance Committee keeps all financial information confidential and makes awards regardless of race, color, sex, religion, creed, gender expression, national origin, ethnic group, or disability. The amount of aid given to families ranges from 10% to 95% of tuition, and families from a wide range of income levels have qualified based on individual family circumstances.

Families must apply for aid each year as renewal is not automatic or guaranteed. Preference is given to returning families. Each year, demand for tuition assistance exceeds the funds available. Therefore, it is important that all families applying for tuition assistance, both new and returning, meet submission deadlines. Tuition assistance applications become available in October. The deadline to submit is December 4th, 2023 for currently enrolled families and January 8th, 2024 for applicant families.

Families applying to ISB should indicate their intention to apply for tuition assistance on their child’s admissions application. Applicants are notified of tuition assistance packages when admissions acceptance letters are sent in February and March. If you are applying off-cycle, we recommend that you check with the Admissions Office before applying for tuition assistance, as funds may be limited beyond the regular admissions season.

ISB’s code is 4757. We also require copies of the family’s previous year’s tax returns to be submitted directly to SSS. In cases of separation or divorce, both parents should submit the tuition assistance application and required materials.

French Bourse

If your child is a French citizen, you may qualify for a need-based Bourse from the French government for Pre-K 3 to 5th Grade. The application for the Bourse is made available by the French Consulate in mid-January and the final decisions for the Bourse are made in mid-summer. Applicant families who plan to apply for the Bourse program should notify ISB’s Admissions Office and should also complete the SSS tuition assistance application.
For additional information, FAQs, and a preview of Bourse guidelines, please visit the AEFE.

2nd Grade Future Astronauts Blast Off to Outer Space

There was a buzz of excitement in the 2nd Grade classrooms as students began their next unit of inquiry on outer space. First, students reflected on their prior knowledge by writing and drawing what they already knew about the solar system, and then, they moved on to their space adventures! “This is the best unit for 2nd Graders!” says Paulina Bemporad, 2nd Grade English Teacher. “We tap into the wonder and imagination for space exploration, investigating our Solar System as we integrate science, math, physics, language, literacy, and social studies.”

A Powerful and Intimate Conversation Between ISB 5th Graders and Congresswoman Nydia Velázquez

Each year, as part of the Civic Symbols and Constitutions unit of inquiry, the 5th Grade class sets off to Washington, D.C. to further understand how our the Constitution and other political documents are used to govern the country and to explore the ways that monuments and civic symbols express the common values of our society. While field trips have been put on pause during the pandemic, the class has been enjoying virtual field trips and meetings with special visitors as they learn more about the United States government. Last week, the 5th Graders were very fortunate to have a virtual visit from Congresswoman Nydia Velázquez, New York’s 7th Congressional district representative, which includes their own school community in Carroll Gardens as well as several other surrounding Brooklyn neighborhoods.

La Tierra en Movimiento

The 5th Grade “Moving Earth” unit encompasses Earth’s changes and how those changes can affect our lives. No one could have predicted that students would be exploring this unit while living through a historic pandemic, but the current context gave students a deeper connection to their studies and a very real lens through which to develop inquisitive questions. Students launched the unit by investigating the Earth’s changes and the human response. To explore this, Spanish 5th Graders interviewed people who have lived through various disasters from all around the world.
