Tuition and Tuition Assistance

Commitment to Affordabilty

Inclusivity is one of EB’s core values. One of the ways we achieve socio-economic diversity is by dedicating a generous amount of the school’s budget to need-based tuition assistance.
Thank you for considering EB for your child’s education. We aim to provide the highest quality bilingual education while offering the best value to our families. EB is a nonprofit institution; the tuition is used solely to pay for the costs of educating our students. We are committed to helping families afford EB.

Tuition Assistance

Close to half (42%) of EB families receive some form of tuition assistance, either from the school or from the French government in the case of French nationals.

Ecole Bilingue is committed to remain affordable in order to maintain its vibrant socio-economic diversity, which enhances the experience of all students. Families who are considering EB for their child, but may have challenges in affording it are encouraged to apply for tuition assistance.

EB tuition assistance covers up to 55% of the tuition, as well as overnight field trips and technology fee. We provide step-by-step guidance on the process and deadlines to apply for tuition assistance.

Bourses Scolaires

French families residing in the US can apply to need-based tuition assistance provided by the French government. This program is called “bourses scolaires” and covers up to 100% of the tuition. This program helps foster socio-economic diversity and ensures French-speaking enrollment, benefitting all students.
