Tuition Payment

All tuition fees are payable in advance of attendance, and are in accordance with the fee structure established by GEMS under the guidance of KHDA’s established School Fee Framework. http://www.khda.gov.ae/CMS/WebParts/TextEditor/Documents/FeeFrameWorkEnApril2012.pdf

Tuition invoices are sent to the fee sponsor on record, two months prior to the start of the academic year. Semester fees are due starting one month prior to the start of school, and are to be paid in full by the first day of the academic semester.   

Tuition and fees are the primary source of the school’s operating budget. Therefore, prompt payment is appreciated to ensure the continuing quality of Dubai American Academy’s programs.

For students in grades 1-8 identified as requiring the English Language Learning (ELL) program at the Beginning English Course level (BEC), there is an one-time additional fee. ELL fees for the school year are 3750.00 dirham.
