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.
