||What are the school fees for Singaporean students at SJI?
Please refer to Table 1 under School Fees & Other Costs.
||What is the school fees for foreign students at SJI?
Please refer to Tables 3 & 4 under School Fees & Other Costs.
||Why is this fee increase necessary?
SJI has managed to keep our previous school fees low by being prudent in our financial management and efficient in our use of resources.
However, given the changing educational landscape in Singapore, costs have increased in the last 2 years as the school had to continue to implement enhanced curriculum initiatives, build staff professional capacity and upgrade the school’s physical facilities. With the launch of the dual track education comprising the Integrated Programme (IP) track and the 'O' level track from 2013 onwards, students have benefited from the various innovative and unique initiatives set out for them. Given the additional costs, it would be difficult to keep our fees at the previous rates if we do not want to compromise on a quality education that is the hallmark of a distinguished Lasallian school.
For the 'O' level track, SJI has not increased the school fees but has increased the miscellaneous fees for 2013 - 2015. It will help the school to continue working towards raising the standards of the school to ensure that our students receive the best in value-added education that the school can offer. In increasing the fees, we also ensure that we are charging fees that are competitive with respect to other leading independent schools.
||How will my son benefit from this increase?
SJI will continue its plans to increase staff capacity and further enhance our unique Josephian Programme to ensure better learning and learning support. With these strategies, the school will work towards providing Josephians with the best in value-added education that is a hallmark of a distinguished Lasallian school.
Our students will have the opportunities to be involved in the following:
- Special programmes such as Religious, Moral and Social Education and Business Design Thinking Programme
- Enhanced learning through the use of ICT for learning
- Life Science and Science Research programmes
- Aesthetics programmes
- Outdoor Activities and Sports Recreation programmes
- Oral Communication programmes
- Leadership programmes
- Josephian International Experience Programme
- Curricular Enrichment programmes
- Modular Enrichment programmes
||Are there financial assistance schemes available at SJI?
Admission to SJI is by merit. As a Lasallian school, we are committed to ensuring that finances do not get in the way of a boy’s education in SJI. No boy is turned away because his family cannot afford the fees.
Apart from the MOE Edusave Entrance Scholarship for Independent Schools (EESIS), Edusave (Independent Schools) Yearly Award (EISY A) and other government bursaries, the MOE Financial Assistance Scheme is also available for needy students.
The School offers the SJI Family Assistance Scheme and the SJI Wong Kok Siew–St Vincent De Paul Fund to help our needy students. The level of assistance given will be based on their household income and other criteria. The assistance provided ranges from 25% to 100% of the school fees.
||Whom do I contact if I have any queries on financial assistance?
Please send your email enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please refer to the table below on eligibility for the MOE Independent Schools Bursary found under Financial Aid.
Further information can be obtained from the Registrar's Office (Tel: 62500022). Alternatively, you can email Mr Bernard Teo at email@example.com. No student is turned away from SJI because he cannot pay the fees.
The Old Boys have provided well for boys in need of financial aid. Assistance is also extended to the provision of bus passes, books, camp fees, subsidized excursions, and even meal allowance where need is established. Ample assistance is also provided by the government for families who are deemed to be in need. Full or partial remission will be provided to needy students who meet the specific criteria.
