Tuition and Fees

100% of our funds are invested in our students. No shareholders, no partner schools. Only your children.

Saigon South International School is the only not-for-profit school in Ho Chi Minh City. This means that our only “shareholders” are our students. All revenue from tuition and fees goes to building state-of-the-art facilities, enhancing classroom resources, implementing innovative programs and recruiting world-class teachers.


There are two tuition payment options:

Option 1: Payment in full by 1st July 2019. A 6% early payment discount applies.
