Tuition for Special Services

As part of AISJ enrollment criteria, the school may require certain students to receive special services as a condition of their enrollment. Depending on the severity of needs, these services may include Learning Support (LS), English Language Learning (ELL), and Speech Language Pathology (SLP). AISJ will provide these services as necessary, for an additional fee. Access to these special programs may be based on seat availability and student need. 

Extensive Service Level I 9,500
Mild/Moderate Service Level II 6,300

*In special circumstances when students require a one-to-one assistant, parents will pay the additional wage cost of the personnel required.

*LS/ELL/SLP fees are payable in advance by semester but refundable for any non-used quarter. Participation during any part of a quarter constitutes payment due for the entire quarter.

Families with more than one child enrolled at AISJ will be eligible for the following discount on tuition. This discount does not apply to Special Service Fees, including English Language Learners, Learning Support, or AP Fees. The child in the highest grade level will be considered the first child.

Second Child 5% from own tuition
Third Child 10% from own tuition
Fourth Child and Above 15% from own tuition

Enrollment Fees for New Students

The following fees are assessed one time to all new students and are non-refundable. These one-time Enrollment Fees are not included in tuition. A new student is considered to be any child who is either new to AISJ, or is re-enrolling after not attending AISJ for a period of one year. 

Application Fee Application Submission Date 600
Assessment Fee Prior to Assessment/Interview 950
Registration Fee Enrollment/Re-Enrollment Date 10,350

Seat Deposit

For each returning student, a 4,000 SAR seat deposit fee will be applied towards tuition.

2018-2019 February 8, 2018 May 24, 2018

Non-returning students shall submit withdrawal forms to the Admissions Office. Students who do not pay the seat deposit fee will not be guaranteed a seat for the following year and will have to reapply. Seats with a seat deposit paid but with unpaid tuition will be held until the 3rd day of the following school year. If arrival is planned after the due date of August 15, 2018, tuition payment should be paid no later than June 30th to avoid late fees or disenrollment. A planned absence form must be submitted to the appropriate divisional office in advance in order to avoid disenrollment. Please note that seat deposits should be taken seriously as a commitment to return to AISJ.

Other Student Fees

The following is a list of additional fees that are typically incurred throughout the year. Fees for lost or stolen textbooks/library books, SAT assessments, trips abroad and/or associated with sporting events are not included as their prices vary.

*Please note that the tuition and fees mentioned above are excluding VAT.

The AISJ Board of Trustees reserves the right to adjust all the above-mentioned tuition and fees. Parents will be notified of any such adjustments as far in advance as possible.
