**AISF Board Reduces Tuition for the 2019/2020 School Year**


After months of careful analysis and research the AISF Board decided unanimously to reduce tuition in grades 1 through 8 by more than one third. (ECC tuition was reduced by a third for this current year.) Now that our on-site/online high school is growing, grades 9 to 12 tuition will reduce by about 15%. There is no doubt that AISF offers an exceptional education to families and students. Fully accredited by MSA in the US in every aspect of school operations from physical plant and finances to staffing, resources and curriculum, AISF is unique in Sierra Leone. AISF offers a high school experience leading to a full US High School Diploma. The major factor in the Board’s decision is a vigorous effort to make an AISF education available to more families and students here in Freetown. Widening that opportunity will grow our school and enrich the “uniquely AISF” experience.

Here’s what the tuition reductions look like.

CURRENT                                                                                        2019/2020

PreK $10,000                                                                                  PreK $10,000

Grades KG to 4 $16,574                                                               Grades 1 to 4 $11,000

Grades 5 to 8 $17,236                                                                  Grades 5 to 8 $12,000

Grades 9 to 12 $17,236                                                                Grades 9 to 12 $15,000                 


AISF is now poised for the next stage in school growth and development. Tuition reduction is just the beginning.
