Preschool Grant for United Nations Staff Members

Lyceum Kennedy offers an automatic 30% reduction in tuition costs for United Nations staff members that enroll their child in nursery or pre-K (ages 2-4). This grant applies to all full-time United Nations staff, regardless of income level. 

School Financial Aid

Lyceum Kennedy is partnered with School and Student Services (SSS), a web-based platform, to process your financial aid applications. They utilize the system built by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) and are maintained by the NAIS task force to remain relevant to current economic realities and NAIS standards of best practice. 

If you are interested in applying for financial aid, please go to the SSS Family Portal and start registration by creating a Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS).  To register, use our school code: 160310
