"We believe that creating a cohesive community of students, faculty, staff and parents from many backgrounds—socio-economic, ethnic, racial, linguistic, national, and religious—is vital to our mission of creating responsible global citizens and passionate, critical thinkers poised to create positive change in the world." AIS Core Values Statement
As such, AIS remains committed each year to providing financial assistance to admit and retain qualified students regardless of their families’ ability to pay. To learn more about financial aid available, click below.
The application process for admission to AIS is independent of the application process for financial aid.
Financial aid is based on documented financial need. We partner with School and Student Services by NAIS (SSS) in our financial aid application process. SSS provides analysis which generates an Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) that is a critical component of AIS’ financial aid decision. AIS uses the EFC as a baseline; however, AIS must take into consideration the total financial aid budget and the school’s policies and priorities. Therefore, the financial aid awarded to a family may not meet the demonstrated need documented by SSS.
All financial aid applications are subject to verification, and should discrepancies be discovered in the information provided to the Financial Aid Committee, we reserve the right to withdraw financial assistance at any time during the school year.
