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 alleviates the need for the PTA use energy fund raising and instead they can focus on helping our students.

Tuition aid

Grade 10, 11 and 12 students are eligible to receive government tuition aid. The system for G11 and G12 students remains as to date and fees will be invoiced with the tuition aid deducted. However, from August 2014 beginning families of G10 students will need to submit an application form and tax payment certification (kazei-shomeisho) to receive the aid. Invoices will be for the full amount of school fees with a refund coming upon successful application for the tuition aid.

In principle it is assumed that families entering OIS have the financial resources available to meet fee payments. Limited financial aid can be applied for if financial circumstances change. Forms are available from downloads section of this website.
