Tuition Fees & Payment Methods

The fees associated with attendance at Datus International School fall into several categories. An Enrollment fee (which includes base tuition and food service) is required to secure enrollment and is specific to the Payment Schedule in the enrollment contract. Required (Middle and Upper school textbooks; uniforms at all grade levels), and Discretionary (extra-curricular activities and equipment, Lower School after school care programs, and academic tutoring services) fees are the responsibility of each family and are in addition to enrollment.

Late Fees and Penalties

All amounts 15 days past due (refer to payment schedule) are subject to a service charge and an additional charge for each 30 days late thereafter. Late charges are calculated and billed on the last day of the month. When any portion of any account becomes greater than 45 days in arrears, Datus International School may, at its sole discretion, deny class attendance and participation in other school activities, withhold academic reports, yearbooks, and transcripts, and revoke the enrollment contract. Any payment returned is subject to a processing charge.

Payment Options.

A 10 percent non-refundable deposit is due with the enrollment agreement. No student will be considered enrolled until the enrollment deposit is received. There are four payment options available for the balance due after making the deposit. These options are:

  1. Pay the balance in one full payment. Payment can be made to the bank by e-check or by cash or check to Datus International School.
  2. Pay the balance in two equal payments, on due dates. Payment can be made to the bank by e-check or by cash or check to Datus International School. This is the default option if no other option is selected at the time of enrollment.
  3. Pay the balance in up to 3 equal payments made each month. Payment will be automatically processed monthly from your bank account or by charging your credit card. An enrollment fee of 100 GHC per family will apply.

A payment option must be selected at the time of enrollment. No other payment options or terms will be available.

Datus International School offers generous financial assistance to qualified families. However, there is limited financial aid available (and none for families of Prek4 students). Unfortunately, Datus cannot guarantee to meet the calculated needs, and all families must pay a substantial portion of the tuition. Datus offers only need-based financial aid – no scholarships.

Procedures For Applying For Financial Aid

Please visit the Business Office on Monday – Friday 9am – 2pm.

If parents are divorced or separated, both parents must complete application for financial aid forms and provide the required information to determine eligibility.
