The International School of Minnesota does not receive funding for educational expenses and operational costs from the government. To cover the educational expenses and costs of operation, ISM charges tuition for each student. In order to promote ISM's commitment to economic diversity, ISM offers families with children in grades 1-12 the opportunity to apply for financial aid. Financial aid awards at ISM are based on careful review by the committee and looks at the family's whole file, not just financial need.
All families with a child in Grades 1-12 may apply for financial aid for the Academic Year 2019-2020.
Please complete the pre-enrollment form and return it to the Admissions Office. Then create an account with TADS to continue.
