FEES AND FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
Fees & Tuition
The Academy is a non-profit Private Independent School that receives no Government subsidies for its daily operations. School fees mainly support the high teacher-student ratio and provide what the Academy deems as the best education for its students. Tuition, however, only covers part of the cost of educating a student at the Academy. The difference is made up through donations from parents and friends of ISF as well as funding from The Independent Schools Foundation Limited (“Foundation”), the school sponsoring body of the Academy.
An Acceptance Deposit must be paid in order to secure a place for your child. The deposit will be credited towards the tuition fees and is non-refundable if the student subsequently withdraws from the school.
Financial Aid applicants who submit their applications after the relevant deadline may not receive a firm indication of the fee remission (if any) prior to receiving the Admissions Offer Letter. Such applicants will be required to pay the full Acceptance Deposit and contribute to the Capital Contribution Scheme. These payments will be reimbursed / credited to the student’s account if the application for Financial Aid is successful. Financial Aid applicants are therefore strongly encouraged to submit the complete set of required documents before the deadline as stated in the Financial Aid section.
Annual Tuition for the 2021-22 Academic Year is payable in 10 equal installments via bank autopay as outlined below. The first installment for new students is made as part of the Acceptance Deposit. Subsequent installments for new students (for those opting to pay by bank autopay) will be processed on the first bank working day of each month from October to June during the academic year. The installments for existing students on bank autopay are processed on the first bank working day of each month from September to June during the academic year.
