Financial Aid

Accreditation Banner

Lycée International de Houston believes it is important to provide our innovative education to all children admitted to the school, regardless of their financial status.

The Lycée International de Houston accepts students on a “need-based” basis; we believe that tuition expenses should not be an impediment to enrollment. Through funds specifically set-aside within the school’s operating budget, the Lycée International de Houston School offers financial aid to families who could not otherwise afford to enroll their children at LIH. Financial aid analysis provides a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition.

The Lycée International de Houston does not grant academic, athletic, afterschool programs, transportation, languages, or any special interest scholarships.

Financial aid decisions are not based solely on income, as many factors can determine a family’s ability to pay. The Lycée International de Houston aid is based on demonstrated financial need, and parents of candidates must provide confidential financial statements in their applications. All financial aid information is held in the strictest confidence.

Financial aid awards are reviewed annually and are made based on the family’s current financial status. Families receiving financial aid for the past school year must re-apply each year.


If your child is a French citizen and lives in the Houston area with at least one of his/her parents, you are eligible to apply for financial aid from the French government.

All applications for the “Bourses Scolaires” are submitted to the Consulate General of France in Houston.
