Application Fee 

A non-refundable Application Fee of USD 100 (or PLN 400) covers the processing of an application. Applications will not be processed until the Application Fee has been received.

The Application Fee will not be charged for those who maintain active status on a waiting list based on a prior paid application (periodically updated document submission may be required).

Registration Fee 

Registration Fee is a one-time, non-refundable fee applied to newly enrolled students due upon admission to the School to confirm your student’s seat except as noted below:

Grade Level Fee (USD)
Pre-kindergarten  PLN 4000 deposit

Fee. They pay a non-refundable seat deposit of PLN 4,000 by a specified date.
● Students continuing into or entering Kindergarten pay a non-refundable Registration Fee of $1,000.
● Kindergarten students returning and continuing into first grade will pay a non-refundable Registration Fee of $5,000

For all of the above fees, payment plans are available for non-corporate payers. Installment plans associated with the Registration Fee, EAL Fee, and Learning Support fees may also be selected.
