As a non-profit organization, the American International School of Jeddah (AISJ) is funded predominantly by tuition and fees. General tuition and fees ensure the continued quality of the school’s programs. All funds are used to operate the school, provide the best education and resources reasonably possible, and to prepare for the school’s future needs. Tuition amounts include textbooks, classroom assessments/reporting, and PSAT assessments.
Tuition is assessed on a full-year basis for students enrolling in the first semester. Tuition may be paid in two equal semester installments on the due dates listed below. Attendance of one week in a semester will make the student subject to pay a full semester tuition fee. For parents with 3 or more children attending AISJ, tuition payment can be made in four equal installments on the due dates listed below.
|GRADE LEVEL||TUITION (SAR) FULL TUITION DUE|

As part of AISJ enrollment criteria, the school may require certain students to receive special services as a condition of their enrollment. Depending on the severity of their needs, these services may include Learning Support (LS), English Language Learning (ELL), and Speech Language Pathology (SLP). AISJ will provide these services for an additional fee. AISJ accepts students with mild to moderate special needs. We are unable to accept and admit students with intensive or severe needs.
|LEVEL OF SUPPORT||FEES (SAR)|
|High Moderate Needs – Level I (considerable staff time required)||60,000|
|Moderate Needs – Level II||15,000|
|Mild Needs – Level III||10,000|
*In special circumstances when students require a one-to-one assistant, parents will pay the additional wage cost of the personnel required.
*LS/ELL/SLP fees are payable in advance by semester but refundable for any non-used quarter. Participation during any part of a quarter constitutes payment due for the entire quarter.
Tuition refunds will be issued for unattended semesters by any student. Attendance of one week or more in a semester will negate eligibility for any refund for that semester.
Families with more than one child enrolled at AISJ will be eligible for the following discount on tuition. This discount does not apply to Special Service Fees, including English Language Learners, Learning Support, or AP Fees. The child in the highest grade level will be considered the first child.
|First Child||No Discount|
|Second Child||5% from own tuition|
|Third Child||10% from own tuition|
|Fourth Child and Above||15% from own tuition|

Seat deposits are refundable at any time before May 31, 2021 by submitting withdrawal forms to the Admissions Office (School Registrar).

Seats with a seat deposit paid but with unpaid tuition will be held until the 3rd day of the following school year.
