Living Our Mission

La Scuola is a community that exists to delivering an unparalleled private international education for more than 40 years. Balancing top-tier academic rigor while nurturing students to become true global citizens.

To this end, we are happy to offer tuition assistance for full-time enrollment to families who would not otherwise be able to afford the full cost of a La Scuola education. Tuition assistance is funded by both our operating budget and generous contributions from the La Scuola community and is based on demonstrated need and availability of funds, without regard to race, color, religion, ethnic origin, or disability.

La Scuola uses School and Student Services (SSS) to process tuition assistance applications and provide preliminary data relative to each family’s financial need.
