We understand that a private school education requires a significant financial commitment from families
so we work hard to ensure that financial concerns are not a barrier to accessing
the Midwest's most distinct academics.
At ISI, our goal is to clearly communicate the total cost of earning an International School education, so we provide one all-inclusive fee. Our transparent fee structure includes lunch, books, supply fees, technology support, activity fees, local field trips, Parent Association support, and more. These important services remain a vital part of our mission to provide a high-quality education to your children.
Financial Aid Options
ISI is committed to economic diversity and provides support to those that need it in the form of monthly payment plans, scholarships, financial aid and other forms of financial assistance. In a typical school year, approximately 40% of our students receive some level of scholarships or other forms of assistance.
ISI offers both need-based assistance and merit-based awards. Need-based aid depends on a family’s financial profile as determined by the Parents' Financial Statement (PFS) that a family creates online and submits as a part of our application process.
