Fees

School fees are invoiced termly and paid, in principle, by direct bank transfer from accounts registered with the school. All amounts are in yen (JPY). Please refer to the fee payment policy section at the bottom of this page for further explanatory details about school fees.

EAF Fee

School fees up to and including the 2023-2024 school year are comprised of tuition and an educational advancement fee (EAF). The EAF is a part of the overall fee payment that is paid by all students attending OIS and is used to directly support the educational programmes in place at the school. The Kwansei Gakuin Educational Foundation, which oversees the financial operations of the school, uses this breakdown across all its schools. It can be thought of as the component of the fees that is allocated to facilities and equipment.

From the 2024-2025 school year, the fees will be combined as one number and listed as "annual tuition fee".

PTA Fee

A levy of 3,000 yen per year per student is payable at the beginning of each school year.

The PTA uses the funds to enhance the education of the students of OIS.

This funding allows the PTA to focus on helping our students, rather than spending a great deal of time and energy raising funds.

Subject to confirmation by the Board of Trustees of Kwansei Gakuin Educational Foundation, the OIS PTA has approved an increase in the PTA fee from ¥3,000 to ¥5,000 for the 2024-2025 school year. As in previous years, the school will invoice families inclusive of this fee and transfer the collected fees to the PTA.
