Tuition & Fees

Admissions-related Fees

All fees are non-refundable


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 $50 for first student in the family and $40 for additional siblings.)


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 $70 for first student in the family and $60 for additional siblings.


Assessment Fee:   If it is determined that an applying student will require testing (English or Ability placement), a $25 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.

Important Payment Dates:

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, 2020) 



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 January 10, 2020, the family will be notified that you can no longer charge any expenses to your account. All expenses will need to be paid in cash at the Business Office. This includes things such as hot lunch, uniforms, library fines, etc. This will remain in effect until the 50% is paid. Remember, full payment must be completed by March 31, 2020. If not, the policy of paying cash will be implemented again. 


Starting May 1, 2020, 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 2019-2020 school year, if there is a remaining balance on your 2018-2019 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 credit card.
