Admissions and Administration Fees

  • Admission Fee: CHF 3,500 per child
  • This is a “one off” fee payable upon acceptance and confirmation of your child’s place at our school. At present this admission fee is waived for any child joining from a school in the Cantons of Vaud and Geneva regardless of the proposed year of entry. In line with normal entry procedures, we ask for payment of CHF 3,500 to confirm your child’s place and this amount is deducted from the first term’s fees.
  • Annual administration and re-enrolment: No cost
  • There are no annual administration fees payable for students re-enrolling for subsequent years.

Convenient, structured payments for an outstanding education

  • We want all of our GEMS parents to feel informed about school fees and be able to plan their school year. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact our team for more information. We are always happy to help at any stage.
