Financial Aid

Rochambeau Financial Aid

All families are eligible for Financial Aid without regard to race, color, ancestry, national origin, disability, religion, gender or sexual orientation. The School's Financial Aid is allocated based on the family's financial needs and can cover up to 80% of the tuition, registration fees and transportation fees. Our objective is to support as many families as possible while staying within the budgetary envelope available. The amounts can therefore vary from one year to another. We encourage all interested families to apply.

To to be eligible for financial aid from the school, French families must first apply for French Government financial aid. Application for financial aid will be processed by FACTS and all information provided will remain strictly confidential. French government employees receiving any government subventions are not eligible for the French Government aid, but may submit a request for Rochambeau Financial Aid.
