Student Support Fees: ICS charges additional fees for specialized educational services, including occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, educational psychology assessments and the Transition Program. Need for services is determined by ICS and neither services nor fees may be waived.

Application and Registration Fees: Application and registration fees are non-refundable and applicable for one year only, from the date of payment.

Early Childhood Extended Day Fees: For the 2018-19 school year, extended day fees for new and returning early childhood students in the Little Eagles Camp are $3,300 per year or $1,650 per half year.

Capital Levy:

  • The annual capital levy is payable in full if a student attends for any portion of the school year.
  • New students who previously attended ICS and are returning after an absence of one year or more must pay the difference between the current new student capital levy and the new student capital levy paid when they first enrolled at ICS.

Reduced Payment Schedule for Additional Children

For individual families with more than two children enrolled in ICS Addis, discounts are provided on annual tuition fees only, as per the following scales:

  • A five percent (5%) discount for the third child of the same family
  • A ten percent (10%) discount for the fourth child of the same family
  • A fifteen percent (15%) discount for the fifth and any additional child(ren) of the same family

These discounts apply only to the tuition of the specific child, that is, the tuition discount does not apply to all the children in a family, but only to the tuition of the third, fourth, fifth, etc., child. Discounts do not apply to other school fees, such as capital levy and registration fees. Families enrolling three or more children in a school year receive discount starting from the child with lowest tuition.

Making Payments

All tuition and fee payments must be made in US dollars. Payment in USD may be made in cash, personal check, wire transfer, NR check or FCY check. Please contact the ICS Business Office for full payment details.
