Explanation of Fees

Application Fee

A non-refundable fee of $2,500 is required for consideration of each application. Applications will remain valid for a two-year period from the submission date.

Re-Enrollment Fee

A re-enrollment fee of $2,500, paid by March 1 and refundable till March 14, is required of any student intending to reenroll for the following year. After March 1, a late re-enrollment fee of $3,000 and refundable till March 14, is required of any student intending to reenroll for the subsequent year. Late re-enrollments are subject to waitlists without guarantee of placement.

Facility Fee

The facility fee is dedicated to the ongoing maintenance, renewal, and replacement of campus facilities. The annual facility fee of $6,099/$7,169 is due in full at the time of enrollment and for each subsequent school year. It is not prorated for late entry or early withdrawal.

Tuition Fee

Tuition fees vary by grade level and are detailed in the schedule of fixed fees above.

English Language Learning

An annual fee of $6,420 will be assessed for students receiving ELL support above the kindergarten level. ELL enrollment is assessed and billed on a semester basis.

Student Leave of Absence

SAS will hold a spot for up to one year at a time for families who are approved for a student leave of absence. The cost of reserving the seat is $5,000 per child. Inquiries can be made to sasinfo@sas.edu.sg.

Absentee Acceptance

An absentee acceptance may be secured by a qualified applicant at the discretion of the admissions office. This option reserves an available seat in the current semester for one child who is not yet attending SAS and thereby gives immediate sibling priority to all other children in the family. Accepting and paying registration and tuition for the seat before arriving at SAS is a way of advancing the family for better priority in admission.

Payment Terms

New Students: Confirmation Payment

A non-refundable payment of $5,500 is due within seven (7) days of admission as confirmation of acceptance. This amount will be applied to the total school fees payable.

Payment of School Fees

For new students, fees are due in full within 30 days of invoicing. For returning students the re-enrollment fee is due by March 1, and other school fees must be paid in full by June 1 to sustain enrollment. The school may require payment of all school fees in full at the time of admissions, when deemed appropriate due to enrollment limits, waitlists, or other factors.

Late Fees

A late fee of $500 will be imposed for all school fee payments received after June 1 (returning students). Returned cheques and failed GIRO deductions will be subjected to a $50 surcharge.

a culture of possibilities

Testimonial

The emphasis at SAS is both on academic and extracurricular activities, at a pace that is tailored for the students, within a culture that promotes possibilities. The open communication with the teachers, easy access to the support of the counselors backed by the vision of the administration and programs offered, has allowed our boys to flourish in an environment that fosters making choices to match their interests. All this provides a solid foundation for the future and we are very proud to see how both our boys are developing into well rounded caring individuals.
