ISSA Financial Aid

2023-2024 School Year

International School of San Antonio provides financial assistance to families who cannot afford to pay the full tuition. All awards are granted based on the family’s financial need.

Financial assistance is available for new and returning students entering K – 5th grades.

The application process requires registering with an external evaluator that helps in evaluating the financial situation of each family. Our external evaluator is Blackbaud Financial Aid Management (BBFAM).

The deadline to apply is May 15, 2023.

The applications will only be evaluated for those students who are accepted and enrolled for the year in which they are applying. 

Decisions will be communicated by June 15, 2023 to those families who have fully completed the Financial Aid application and ISSA Enrollment.

Military families

International School of San Antonio  meets the requirements for the ChildCare Aware fee assistance program and is eligible to service both active duty and deployed military families for all branches of the military. 

Each military family eligibility though will be determined after the family has applied to the program.

Families need to contact CCAoA’s Parent Services line at 1-800-424-2246 option 3 to determine their eligibility.

Note: We have the confirmation that we are eligible. If CCA tells you otherwise, please contact us and we will help you get through the process.
