ISI Announces Tuition Freeze for 2023-2024 Academic Year, New High School Tuition Lock Program
With a clear focus on strengthening and building community, and as part of its commitment to making the International School of Indiana accessible and affordable to more families, tuition will remain frozen at current rates through the 2023-2024 academic year.
Typically, ISI announces tuition rates in January of each year, with annual tuition increases ranging from three to five percent. However, the school’s Board of Directors approved the tuition freeze at its recent November meeting and is announcing the decision at this time to assist current and prospective families in planning for their futures.
Board President Scott Weaver said, “Given the current economy and our commitment to cultivating a diverse school community, it is more important than ever that we do all we can to keep our school accessible, affordable, and competitive.”
As the cost of educating a student at ISI exceeds the tuition amount by several thousand dollars, ISI will continue to rely on strong philanthropic support from current and alumni families, as well as community and business partners.
The tuition freeze for the 2023-24 academic year is just one step the school’s leaders have taken to support ISI families. In addition, beginning in the Fall of 2023, new and continuing ISI High School students can take advantage of the ISI High School tuition lock.
In its first year, the new program will offer to lock in High School tuition rates for all new and continuing High School students at the current rate for each subsequent term, provided families meet the criteria and enroll in the program by the deadline of March 1, 2023. After the inaugural year, the program will be limited to new and continuing grade 9 students, and transfer students in grades 10 and 11.
ISI recognizes that tuition is an important factor to consider when families are selecting a high school. The school has taken several important steps to make attending ISI for High School a reality for more families, including participation in the Indiana Choice Scholarship Program, and increased financial aid packages for students in grades 9 to 12. The ISI High School tuition lock program is another demonstration of the school’s commitment to strategic recruitment and retention efforts.
As rising costs for a broad range of goods and services weigh on families, ISI hopes fixed tuition costs for the duration of high school will eliminate uncertainty and demonstrates just how much the family-school partnership is valued.
“As we enter a season of gratitude, we want our families to know that we appreciate the investment they make in their child’s education,” Head of School Elizabeth Head said. “It is our hope that parents and guardians see their students learning, exploring, and growing as compassionate, caring members of our community, and that they believe their investment in an ISI education is invaluable."
