Affording ISP

“I have been amazed by how much my son has learned during his first year at ISP. He is speaking, reading and writing in his track language! He has a solid group of friends (the whole class really), and he has grown by leaps and bounds. Hats off to the amazing teachers!”

— Current ISP parent of a Kindergartener

What Can International School of Portland Do For Your Child?

What do we mean when we talk about creating Global Citizens?

Affording ISP

ISP works to keep the cost of tuition down as much as possible. Tuition covers less than 90% of the cost of educating our students, with the remainder being made up from other sources of income, such as fundraising. For many of our families, the cost of education requires careful budgeting.

ISP recognizes that not all families have the financial resources to pay for the entire cost of tuition. ISP is proud to offer tuition support to approximately twenty percent of our student body.  Financial aid is based entirely on a family’s ability to pay for tuition – no other criteria is used.

If you believe that your resources are not sufficient to meet the total costs of an education from International School of Portland, you are encouraged to apply. Financial aid plays no role in our offers for admission to the school.

Tuition Support is available to students in all grades. However, every family is still expected to make a contribution toward the cost of tuition.
