The Total Cost of Attending AISG
We want our parents and prospective parents to be aware of the total cost of enrolling your child at AISG. As you can see from the schedule of fees, the cost of tuition increases as a student progresses through the grades of the school as increasing levels of specialized resources are required per student.
The school also increases its school fees on average by 3.5% per year. This means the cost of your child attending from Pre-School to graduation is approximately RMB 3.5 Million over a 15 year period. As you make your commitments to your child's education and the value that AISG will give them, we also want you to be aware of the cost commitment.
A non-refundable and non-transferable application fee is required for the processing of each student application.
The annual tuition fee is due for returning and newly accepted students. Tuition fees vary by grade level.
The school contracts a bus company to provide optional bus service (PS-12) to and from school. The bus transportation fee applies to those students who register for the bus service. The fee is payable on a semester basis, with costs varying for different routes. AISG does not publicly publish bus routes, due to Child Protection Policy. Please inquire separately to confirm AISG serves your general area.
Extra-Curricular Events and Trips
The costs of extra-curricular events and trips vary and depend on the event’s duration and location. Pricing and payment deadlines will be published in advance of each event/trip.
The 1:1 Laptop Initiative
All students in Grades 6 to 12 are required to bring their own Macbook laptop that meets the school’s requirements to school each day. This fee is not collected by the school, but should be included in the family's budget.
