Fees

Basic participation fees of €4200 will be charged for the 2017 – 2018 school year.  Additional expenses may be required for special events or class trips, English as a Second Language and support services. In order to keep up with rising expenses, the Board of the ASG increases fees annually. We try to keep the increases modest. In recent years that increase has been 100 euros each year.
