Scholarships & Financial Assistance

The International School of Arizona recommends applying for your child as early as Pre-K 4 to ensure they are eligible when they enter Kindergarten.

The International School of Arizona supports all interested families in affording our unique international, multilingual education. Our Scholarship Program is supported by the Arizona Private School Tax Credit and the French Bourse (for French citizens). Our goal is to ensure private school tuition is not a deterrent for a student to attend our school.

The Scholarship Program provides ways to afford our private school education by reducing or eliminating tuition. All students are eligible for at least one form of scholarship and many students qualify for several.

  • Private School Tax Credit Scholarships for All Students (regardless of household income)

  • Private School Tax Credit Income-Based Scholarships

  • French Bourse Need-Based Scholarships

Arizona Private School Tax Credit Scholarships

Most families at ISA participate in this advantageous program to reduce or eliminate their private school tuition. Scholarships are awarded to students in Kindergarten through 8th grade. Funds are donated to School Tuition Organizations (STO), which manage the scholarships and award them to students based on their eligibility.


Types of Scholarships


  • Student must be enrolled in a private K-12 school. There is no upward limit on the original funds an individual student can receive, except the amount utilized by any one student in any one year cannot exceed the amount of tuition due for that year. Funds exceeding the amount of tuition are moved to the following year for that student.

The French Bourse for French Citizens

The International School of Arizona is accredited by the French Ministry of Education, and therefore qualifies for the French Bourse program to provide assistance with educational expenses for eligible French students.

Families whose children are French citizens, and who are registered with the French Consulate, may be eligible for this need-based financial aid program. A child is eligible if they are three years of age or older before December 31 of the year for which they are applying.
