Deposit and Tuition Fees

Upon notification of a child’s acceptance, a non-refundable deposit of 2000€ is required for each new student. This represents a one-time registration fee of 1000€ per child and a 1000€ advance deposit. The advance deposit will be deducted from the first tuition bill.

Returning students must pay a nonrefundable advance deposit in the spring. Places cannot be guaranteed for students whose deposits have not been received by the deadline.

All students will be billed for the balance of tuition at the beginning of September. Families eligible for reduced tuition may elect to distribute payments over a six-month period (October–March); they may also pay by direct debit.

Children who have limited French may qualify for Français Spécial (FS), the Lycée International’s specially designed French-adaptation course.

Offered in one’s first year at the school, Français Spécial builds written and spoken French so that students may join regular classes held in French the following year.
