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.


School fees comprise 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.


A levy of 3000 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.
