As a non-profit school, AIS-R is almost entirely funded by tuition and fees.  All funds collected each year are used to run the school, providing the best education and resources reasonably possible, and to save for the school’s future needs.  The AIS-R Board of Trustees works diligently to budget AIS-R’s financial needs as closely as possible each year to minimize tuition and fee increases while simultaneously safeguarding the school’s future.

Grades 9 - 12

SAR 81,276

SAR 41,638

SAR 39,638

Tuition:  The above tuition fees are assessed based on the semester in which a student enrolls.  Tuition is only refundable when: 1) a student does not attend school at any time during the semester; 2) the student gives written withdrawal notice to the school prior to the first day of the semester; and 3) a student has already paid some or all of the tuition due for that semester.  Any attendance during a semester will negate a refund for that semester.

Tuition payments may be made directly to the Finance Office in installments as follows:

First Installment:                    Payment due by                      August 11, 2014
Second Installment:               Payment due by                      January 15, 2015

“Parent Pay” families with 3 or more children may make quarterly payments as follows:

First Quarter                          Payment due by                      August 11, 2014
Second Quarter                     Payment due by                      October 29, 2014
Third Quarter                         Payment due by                      January 15, 2015
Fourth Quarter                       Payment due by                      April 1, 2015

Seat Deposits:  Each spring, AIS-R collects an annual seat deposit, which guarantees that AIS-R will hold a seat for returning students.  Students who do not pay the seat-deposit by the due date will not be guaranteed their seat at AIS-R the following year, and will need to re-apply with the Admissions Office in order to determine if a seat is still available.  The seat deposit for the 2014-2015 school year is SAR 6,000.  Please note, however, that the seat deposit is not an additional fee as this amount is credited toward the first installment payment.  

The seat deposit is a non-refundable fee unless the school is notified of the student’s withdrawal prior to June 5, 2014 (a 100% refund).  There is no refund if notification comes after June 5th. Please note that the seat deposit is a serious indicator to AIS-R of how many students intend to return the following year, which dictates how many new students may be accepted at each grade level.

Guaranteed Seats:  As described above, seats will only be guaranteed for returning students who have paid the seat deposit on or before the due date.  In addition, seats will only be held for students who have paid the seat deposit until Thursday, September 4, 2014, unless the first installment of tuition is paid in full prior to this date.  Students who do not pay the first tuition installment prior to September 4, 2014 forfeit both their seat and the seat deposit.

2014 – 2015 New Student Fees:

NEW STUDENT FEES

 

Application Fee

SAR 600

Assessment Fee

SAR 1,500

Capital Fee

SAR 8,000 (grades PK-8)* / SR 13,000 (grades 9-12)

Registration Fee

SAR 9,500

Learning Strategies Fee

SAR 5,200 per year (for students in the Learning Strategies program)

Application Fee:  A non-refundable application fee of SAR 600 is required for all students applying for admissions at AIS-R.  This fee must be paid upon submission of application documents.

Assessment Fee:  A non-refundable assessment fee of SAR 1,500 is assessed for all students applying for admissions at AIS-R.  This fee is payable directly prior to the time in which the admissions assessment is to take place.

Registration Fee:  A non-refundable registration fee of SAR 9,500 is assessed for all newly admitted students. This payment is due within 48 hours of the acceptance notification to all grade levels in order to guarantee the seat, regardless of the student’s actual starting date.  This fee is also assessed on all re-enrolling students when more than one year has elapsed since the student’s withdrawal from AIS-R (i.e. when a student has not been enrolled at AIS-R for two or more consecutive semesters).  Students who have only been away from AIS-R for one semester will be assessed 50% of this fee.

Capital Fee:  Capital Fee: A non-refundable, one-time capital fee of SAR 8,000 (grades PK-8) and SAR 13,000 (grades 9-12) is assessed for each new student entering AIS-R.  This fee is also assessed on all re-enrolling students, regardless of the time they have been away from AIS-R. If, however, the re-enrolling student paid the capital fee in the previous three years, they would pay the difference between the old fee and the new fee. After three years absent from the school, the re-enrolling student will pay the entire capital fee. This fee is to be paid within two days of acceptance in order to reserve the student’s seat at AIS-R.

Learning Strategies Fee:  This fee is applicable to all new students who receive extra services from a Learning Strategies teacher to assist them in being successful in AIS-R’s program.  Parents will be notified upon in writing if these services will be required as a condition for their child’s Admission into AIS-R.  The Learning Strategies fee is SAR 5,200 and is assessed on an annual basis.  Students who enroll in the Learning Strategies program during the second semester will be billed SAR 2,600.  This fee is refundable only for a semester in which a student does not attend school.  Any attendance during a semester negates a refund.

Seat Deposit:  All newly admitted students must pay the annual seat deposit of SAR 6,000 within 48 hours of the acceptance notification in order to guarantee their seat.  The seat deposit is not refundable to new students because it is part of their seat guarantee.  However, it is not actually an additional fee as this amount is credited toward the following semester’s tuition payment.

New Student Tuition and Fee Summary:  All newly admitted students must pay the Registration, Capital and Seat Deposit fees within 48 hours of acceptance in order to guarantee their seats.  Please note that all of these fees are non-refundable as they constitute the guarantee of a seat, thereby preventing AIS-R from admitting any other student for this spot

Entering AIS-R during the School Year:  Students entering AIS-R after the beginning of the year should note that tuition fees must be paid prior to the student’s first day of attendance.  Please note the following tuition fee table for students entering during the school year.

Quarter Entering AIS-R

Tuition Fees To Be Paid

1st Quarter

  • 100% of First and Second Installments

2nd Quarter

  • 60% of First and 100% of Second Installment

3rd Quarter

  • 100% of First Installment

4th Quarter

  • 60% of First Installment

Guaranteed Seats:  As described above, seats will only be guaranteed for new students who have paid the Registration, Capital and Seat Deposit fees within 48 hours of their acceptance, and who have paid the First Installment of tuition by the appropriate due date stated above.  Failure to do so will result in the loss of the seat, and require the student to re-apply with the Admissions Office to determine if a seat is still available

2014-2015 Additional Fees and Policies:

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Program:  All students in grades 4, 5, and 6 are required to bring an iPad to school as part of our 1:World Program.  Also, students entering grades 9, 10, 11, and 12 in August 2014 are required to bring their own laptop to school.  See this article for more details:  BYOD at AIS-R.  Over the next 2 years, this program will expand to include grades 3-7 (iPads) and grades 8-12 (laptops).

English Language Learners (ELL):  A minimum level of English language proficiency may be required for enrollment.  Beginning in KG-II, supplementary ELL instruction is provided for an additional fee to those students requiring assistance with English language acquisition.  Pre-testing and teacher referral determines student eligibility for ELL instruction.  A questionnaire is included with the admissions application for parents to complete.  The ELL fee is SAR 5,200 and is assessed on an annual basis.  Students who enroll in ELL program during the second semester will be billed SAR 2,600.  This fee is refundable only for a semester in which a student does not attend school.  Any attendance during a semester negates a refund.

Arabic Language Program of Studies (ALPS):  ALPS is an optional after-school Arabic language program (speaking, reading and writing) offered to students in grades 1 through 12 (KG-II ALPS classes may be offered if a minimum of 8 students enroll).  The ALPS fee is SAR 2,850 per semester.  This fee is non-refundable after the student attends one session.

Returned Checks:  AIS-R assesses a returned check fee of SAR 100 per occurrence per family for any check that is returned to AIS-R unpaid.

Methods of Payment:  Tuition and fees are payable in Saudi Riyals only.  Funds may be drawn on a Saudi Arabian bank through a personal check, a bank draft, a debit through an ATM card, wire transfer, AMERICAN EXPRESS CARD, VISA or MASTERCARD.  For ATM transactions, please verify your authorized daily limit with your bank.
