Fees and tuition rates seen here apply only to self-paying families.
Corporate donations are welcome, please contact us for corporate rates.
Once paid, the One-Time Fees are not refundable.
Tuition can be paid every 4 months in 3 tern payments or annually (with a discount).
Tuition fees must be paid in full before each term begins.
Zoe International School requires all fees to be paid in full by the date stated on the invoice. Invoices will be sent out 7-8 before their due date. Parents are responsible for the timely payment of invoices, even in cases where a third party such as a company is making the payment. Students whose tuition has not been paid by the beginning of the following term will not be permitted to attend the school and the school will seek to reallocate their place to the next person on the waiting list.
The fees for the new academic year must be paid by March 1. If the payments are not made by March 1, the school will reallocate the places of students whose fees have not been paid to potential students on the waiting list without additional notice. All fees must be paid by bank transfer and made under the name of the student.
In order to secure a student place at Zoe International School, Application and Admission fees for new students must be paid within one week of receiving the invoice. Any delinquent payments without prior notice will result in withdrawal of the admission offer.
For students enrolled after the school year commences, tuition fees will be calculated based on the 3 academic terms. If a student is transferring into the school in the middle of a term, the family will be charged for the full term or half the term depending on the enrollment date.
The School does not refund any fees or tuition for terms that were partially attended. Refunds are issued only in the case where notice has been received as described below and a term has been fully unattended.
Parents wishing to withdraw a student from the school must give no less than one complete term prior written Notice of Withdrawal to the school office or pay one complete term’s fees in lieu of such notice. The office will advise the student’s teacher(s) of the pending withdrawal so that student reports and other necessary documents can be prepared. If the family needs a recommendation letter to accompany the students to a new school, they must submit an official request through the school office. The school will not issue any recommendation letters or transcripts until outstanding fee payments are settled.
Annual Payment Discount
The school offers a significant discount to families that prefer to pay tuition in a lump sum. The annual discount is an "early bird" discount and is only offered for payments made without delay.
In cases of late payments without any prior notice, school policy prohibits class attendance and/or the release of grades, transcripts, or other records of attendance and performance. A weekly late fee charge of 10,000 yen will be applied to all cases of delinquent payments.
Scholarship and Discount Validity
Scholarships and discounts received as part of an admission campaign are valid for one academic year. Scholarships could be renewed, subject to satisfactory student progress and reassessment of family means.
Changes in Fees/Tuition
The School reserves the right to review and adjust its fees/tuition at any time without prior notice.
An invoice for tuition and fees will be sent with bank transfer information at the time of application, admissions and before the term begins.
