Tuition & Fees
All fees are non-refundable
Application Fee: Fee paid by Applying Students each school year to officially start the process of admittance to FIA. Typically the interview has already taken place.
The application fee is to be paid concurrently with the submission of the application form. The registrar will verify that this fee has been paid prior to processing this application. This must be paid in cash to the cashier in the business office who will then take the verification documentation to the registrar.
Currently the fee is ₱3,500 for first student in the family and ₱3,000 for additional siblings.
Registration Fee: Fee paid by Returning and Continuing Students each school year for families to ensure re-enrollment of their children at FIA. Applying Students do not pay this fee. (Currently ₱2,500 for first student in the family and ₱2,000 for additional siblings.)
Assessment Fee: If it is determined that an applying student will require testing (English or Ability placement), a ₱1,500 testing fee must be paid. This fee applies to category II & III families only. Category I families are exempt from this fee. This fee must be paid prior to the administration of the test.
Capital Fees: A capital fee is charged for each student per year (PHP ₱216,000).
Tuition Fees for SY 2021-2022
Generous discounts are possible for families serving with NGOs and Mission Organisations. Please contact FIA directly with details of your family's situation for more specific information.
If you choose a QUARTERLY or MONTHLY schedule, initial payment of 30% of your annual fee is due August 13th or before.
Late fees are at the discretion of the Executive Team and will not exceed double the enrollment fees.
Fees are calculated using a School Quarter as the smallest increment.
Discounts are applied only for yearly, semester and quarterly payments.
Important Payment Dates:
January 14, 2022
50% of Tuition and Capital fees paid (no report card can be given if a family has not paid 50% by December 15, 2021)
March 31, 2022
100% of Tuition and Capital fees paid (no report card or transcripts can be given if a family has not paid 100% by March 31, 2022)
In order to operate FIA effectively and efficiently, it is critical that all fees are paid by the deadlines. These are the dates you promise to pay the fees. Please do not put the administration in a position where we need to implement procedures or fines due to lack of payment. FIA tuition and capital fees are among the lowest with international schools in Asia.
If at least 50% of tuition and capital fees are not paid by December 15, 2021, the family will be notified that the student may not return for second semester until 50% is paid in full. Remember, full payment must be completed by March 31, 2022. If not, the policy of paying cash will be implemented again.
Starting May 1, 2022, ALL families will have to pay cash for ALL expenses (including yearbooks, hot lunches, uniforms, etc). No child can receive their final report card, or receive school transcripts if your account is not at zero.
For children returning for the 2021-2022 school year, if there is a remaining balance on your 2020-2021 account, your children may not start class until your outstanding balance is paid in full. Accounts can be paid by peso or USD cash, peso or USD check, peso or USD wire transfer or Dragonpay.
