Frequently Asked Questions
Who are your students?
La Scuola welcomes families from throughout New York City and the tristate area. Our community also includes international students and families who come to us from Italy and other European countries.
Are most families Italian or Italian speakers?
While some of our students and families are native Italian speakers or have Italian heritage, our community reflects the diversity of backgrounds and ethnicities present in New York City. Students do not need to speak fluent Italian to enroll in the preschool and elementary programs; however in the [middle] and high school, we will conduct a language assessment for each student to determine eligibility.
How much Italian is spoken in school?
Our program is bilingual Italian and English. Both languages are spoken throughout the school day.
Do you offer financial aid?
Yes! 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. Please visit our Tuition and Financial Assistance page to learn more.
How many students are in each class?
We are pleased to provide families with a 4:1 student-to-teacher ratio. Our small class sizes are proven to help students learn faster and perform better. Students at La Scuola receive more individual attention, increased participation, and better communication with teachers.
Do you have a gym/extracurriculars?
Yes! We offer 26 extracurricular programs.
