In order to welcome at Lab School Paris children from socially less privileged families than the usual public of alternative schools, we have set up a scholarship system. The cost of tuition is 860 € per month for 10 months. Families may apply for partial or total scholarships, which are awarded after examination of the applications by a committee made up of members of the steering committee and the pedagogical council. The commission takes into account, on the one hand, the income of the parents and, on the other hand, the individual situation of the families (number of children, additional income, etc.).
The number of children who can be enrolled in each rate band is fixed in advance, so as to preserve the financial equilibrium of the institution. It depends on the subsidies and sources of income that the school is able to raise in addition to the tuition fees paid by parents. The rates below are suggested as guidance.
Payment is made at the beginning of each quarter, over 10 months (September to June of the school year). A solidarity contribution of €25 per child per month is added to the tuition fees: it is paid by everyone and can be intended either to reduce the cost of schooling or certain services for families who need them most, or to partially finance the presence of a school life assistant in order to allow the reception of children with special educational needs.
