Other General School Fees for New & Returning Students

Institutional Fee:   USD3,500.00 per student

 As a means to accommodate and better serve the needs of more transient families, an annual per-student Institutional Fee to subsidize the operating costs associated to running an international school is charged.

 This fee is applicable to families with students whose educational benefits are paid directly/indirectly, reimbursed fully or partially, or included in their remuneration package by their employers, embassies, banks, corporations or other organizations. This fee is due upon acceptance or at the time of re-inscription.  Students in this category, as established in the admissions policy, have priority for admissions.

 For all students applying to ISP, parents will be required to complete, as part of the application process, the Institutional Fee Declaration, in which they will indicate if their employer is responsible fully or partially for school fees.

For returning students, the Institutional Fee Declaration will be required to be completed every year as part of the re-inscription process. Re-inscription will not be processed unless all required information and documents are submitted.

Selective Student Fees for Special Services and Events

  1. EAL Fee: The goal of the EAL program is to give non-native English speakers special assistance in learning the language skills needed to perform successfully in the regular ISP classroom environment. The school will determine the need of this service. For students requiring this special service, the parent must pay an additional school fee of USD500.00 per semester.  This fee will be charged at the beginning of each semester in which the additional EAL services are provided.
  2. Learning Support Program Fee: The Learning Support Program at ISP is based on the philosophy that individuals vary in their learning styles, level of ability, pacing needs, motivation, and interests.  Student needs are met through differentiated instruction and clearly defined expectations appropriate to their level.  For students requiring learning support service, the parent must pay an additional school fee of USD500.00 per semester.  This fee will be charged at the beginning of each semester in which the additional Learning Support services are provided.

        If the student requires both services (EAL and Learning Support) the parents must pay a single fee of USD750.00 per semester to cover these services.  

  1. Musical Instrument Fee: Students using a school instrument will be assessed a fee of USD20.00 per semester. The musical usage fee will defray costs for maintenance and eventual replacement of school instruments.  Additional costs may result from the need to purchase items such as reeds and valve oil not covered in the usage fee.  Replacement for any instrument or accessory lost, broken, or stolen will be the responsibility of the family.
  2. International Baccalaureate (IB) Fees: Students in the eleventh and twelfth grades, who choose to enroll in the IB Program, will be assessed separate IB program fees.  These fees are payable through the school and are collected over a two-year period.


Students Withdrawal

Students withdrawing from the School will be charged the applicable tuition due through the last semester in which they attend any classes.

Re-Admissions Fee

Families with returning students who, for reasons of relocation or to attend another school, have voluntarily withdrawn for a period of three (3) years or less will be assessed a readmission fee.   This fee is equal to 35% of the Capital Donation amount existing at the time of readmission.  The readmission fee is subject to the same rules and regulations as a Capital Donation.  For the 2018-2019 Academic Year the re-admissions fee will be USD5,600.00.   Any outstanding debts to the School must be settled in full before a student can be considered for readmission. 

Students who are re-enrolled after an absence exceeding three years will be charged the full Capital Donation upon readmission.

Collection of Accounts

  1. Discounts for Advance Payment: Fees are due quarterly: July 30, 2018; September 26, 2018; January 3, 2019 and March 20 2019.  Tuition payment for the entire 2018-2019 academic year received before the beginning of the first semester will be credited with a 2% (two percent) discount from total annual tuition.  If for any reason the student should then withdrawn from school during the school year, parents or the company may apply for a refund of the tuition for any semester in which the student has not attended classes. For such refunds, a service fee of 00 will be charged.
  2. Penalties for Delinquent Payments: To offset the additional administrative costs that arise from delinquent payments, an administrative charge will be levied on all payments not settled by the due date (please see procedure below). At the discretion of the Administration, student attendance may be suspended until a delinquent payment is resolved.   
  3. Procedures for Payment and Collection of Tuition and Fees:
  • Invoices for the subsequent school year will be sent to parents in July. These invoices will define payment policies and the respective dates for payments.
  • It will be the parent’s responsibility to assure that payments are made by the respective due dates. If payment is made by an organization, it will still be the parent’s responsibility to assure that the payment is made on time.
  • As a courtesy, the School will send out reminder invoices for each quarter to those parents who have not paid in advance. These invoices will be sent at least three weeks prior to the due date.
  • The School will give a fifteen-day grace period from the due date of the invoice to receive the payment. After this period, if payment is not received, a 10% (ten percent) fixed rate penalty fee over the nonpaid amount will be charged.
  • Parents with a poor historical payment record will be requested to pay two thirds of the quarterly tuition fee in advance two weeks before the established tuition due dates. Poor historical payment record refers to families that in the previous school year presented payment delays of 30 (thirty) days or more over a quarterly tuition payment.
  • The Parent/Guardian accepts the charges for late payments even if the School has not previously contacted the family.
