The tuition and other academic-related fees are published each year by 15 March for the following year.
A single, non-refundable acceptance fee is due only the first year of enrolment of each student. Please note that no acceptance fee is charged for students entering into Reception 3 and Reception 4.
When parents accept a place, the prepayment of the acceptance fee plus tuition and “other academic-related” fees for the first term is required.
The fees for the subsequent terms are billed at the beginning of each new term:
- Autumn term (August to December) is billed in September
- Winter term (January to March) is billed in December
- Spring term (April to June) is billed in April
For students in Reception 3 and Reception 4, the fees are billed monthly from September to June.
Other academic-related fees
Other academic related fees vary from CHF 0 to approximately CHF 2’500 per school year depending on the year group. These fees are mainly for curriculum-related visits, sports programmes (such as ice skating and skiing), field trips, and excursions.
From August 2020, families at ISL are eligible for the following discount on the tuition fees:
- 5% for the third child
- 10% for the fourth child
- 15% for the fifth child and above.
If employer company of a parent accepts, by signing a specific agreement, to sponsor the schooling fees and to be invoiced directly, no prepayment is required for the fees to be paid by the company.
Billing for optional services
Optional services like transportation, meals, private lessons, and optional school trips are separately invoiced each term. This happens a few weeks after the billing of the mandatory fees. These optional services are invoiced at the beginning of the term for the full term. Any required adjustments will be included in the billing of the following term.
