School Fees & Debentures

APPLICATION FEE

An Application Fee is payable for all applications and is valid for one academic year. The application fee is non-refundable and non-transferable and must be paid by check on the day of assessment. The application fee, which has been approved by the Education Bureau, covers administrative costs, processing fees as well as assessment staff and materials.

The Application Fee is:

  • Kindergarten applicants (Reception 1 and 2) $1000
  • Pre-grade 1 through grade 12 applicants $1500

While ICS strives to offer an admission assessment to most applicants, due to limited availability of seats, assessment is not guaranteed. Please note, it is the parent’s responsibility to ensure all required information is submitted correctly. Incomplete applications will not be processed.

The application fee is only valid for the academic year originally applied for. If an applicant does not gain admission, and thus reapplies for the next academic year, the application fee must be paid again.
