2The early childhood capital levy is credited toward the new student capital levy for students who continue at ICS after early childhood.
3Returning students entering kindergarten are charged the new student capital levy.
4International Baccalaureate exam fees are included for grades 11 and 12.

Extended Day Fees: for the 2016-17 school year, extended day fees for new and returning early childhood students are $3,000 per year or $1,500 per half year.

New Student Capital Levy: 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.

Student Support Services: For the 2017-18 school year, ICS is developing a fee structure for English as an Additional Language (EAL), Speech and Occupational Therapy student support services.  This structure will be available March 2017.

If a child attends school for twenty-five (25) school days of any semester (half year), the tuition for that semester must be paid in full. If a child attends school for fewer than twenty-five (25) school days of any semester (half year), the parent has the option of paying a daily rate amounting to 1.5% of the semester tuition.

Making Payments

All tuition and fee payments must be made in US dollars. Payment in USD may be made in cash, traveler's checks, personal check, wire transfer, NR check or FCY check. Only Ethiopian nationals with children already attending ICS may pay in Ethiopian birr, at the prevailing rate of exchange. A 5% surcharge is added to all birr payments.
