1. Miscellaneous Charges

1.1 Non-Refundable Admission Fee. Payable for students enrolling for the first time. The admission fee must be paid to secure a place for a child in the Academy. This cannot be deferred or paid in instalments. The due date is one week after the offer has been accepted.

1.2 Refundable Security Deposit. Around 10% of the fees are payable on acceptance of admission and should be paid together with the admission fee mentioned above. As the Security Deposit is different between the PYP, MYP and DP, the differential will be invoiced when the child is transferred from PYP to MYP and from MYP to DP. It is refundable when a student leaves the school as long as the required notice has been given in writing and “No Dues” clearance is obtained from the Academy. No interest is payable on this deposit.

1.3 Good Faith Deposit. Paid for Grade 1, Grade 11 day students and all residential students to secure their place, as part payment against their first Semester fee, due to limited capacity. This will have to be paid as soon as the admission of the student is accepted for new joiners (including Grade 1) students and before 30 April for the Grade 11 Students. All other residential students will pay the Good Faith deposit together with the Admissions Fee. In the event that the student does not join the Academy, this deposit will not be refunded.

1.6 Stipend. Paid separately by residential students and will be managed by the Academy. The students will be able to withdraw a maximum KES 500 per week to cover any personal expenses. Any balance with the academy will be paid to the students at the end of the Academic Year. Tuition Fees
