Financial Assistance

We know that for some families the cost of attending camp can be a financial burden that they might not be able to afford. At L’Alliance Française of San Francisco we have different tiers of pricing for our camp program to families earning less than 60% of the median rates income. We can only offer 1 specific rate for each week, on a first-come, first-serve basis, giving priority to children who didn’t receive it already during the same calendar year. 

In order to be considered for financial assistance, you may request a meeting with the Academic Director Noëmie Causse to present your proof of revenue. noemie@afsf.com

While you may have received financial assistance previously, that does not automatically ensure that you will be awarded one this year.
