Description of Fees

Annual Fees

Yearly fees are due by May 1. Fees are reviewed on a yearly basis by the Board of Directors and families will be advised of any significant changes in advance. See the following page for a description of what tuition fees include.

Application Fee

A one-time non-refundable fee of CHF 1,500 is due upon submitting the application form in order to begin the admissions process. A secure credit card payment option is available at admissions/payments.

Security Deposit

Following a student’s acceptance, a one-time deposit of CHF 8,000 is required to be paid within 10 business days of acceptance to reserve his/her place. The deposit is refunded approximately 3 months after the student leaves the school permanently, provided the personal account has been fully settled. In addition, any room damage charges incurred will be deducted from this deposit.

Capital Improvement Fund

The Capital Improvement Fund was established in 2010 by an anonymous donation. These funds are applied towards preserving our architectural legacy and towards the development and beauti cation of the LAS campuses. School fees for all new students include this initial contribution of CHF 3,000.

Personal Account

Students’ personal expenses must be authorized and covered by parents. This account is managed by the LAS Accounting Department. Statements are emailed to the parent/guardian on a monthly basis. LAS cannot advance credit for personal expenses including travel costs. See page 6 for a description of what possible charges may be included within the Personal Account.
