Private Schools

Does anyone have rough estimates of the tuition costs for primary school fees at American School of Santo Domingo, St. Michael's or St. George's School? I'm interested in applying for my two children for the upcoming year. Also, if anyone has any experience in the timeline for this process, I'd be happy to hear about it. I see for one of the schools that I was looking at that the application process for the 2020-2021 might have already gotten underway last month, which surprised me!

Anyway, thanks for any help in finding these things out. I know that I can also ask as I correspond with admissions officers at the school, but I wanted to see if you all had any information that I might not be able to get from talking with school officials. Thanks!

Abraham Lincoln, the private english speaking school in La Romana costs $10,000 / year

I do not have any first hand knowledge on tuitions.  I do know it depends which year of school the kids are in.   Can you tell us which years?

Thanks, Steve. This helps to know. :)

This would be for my son who will be in preschool, and my daughter who will be in first grade.

Let.me.see.what I can find out.

Here are last years rates for Punta Cana International.  I have it in .pdf but not sure how to show it here.  Maybe if you copy and paste this onto a spreadsheet it will be easier to understand.

Great info.

Thanks! I'm assuming these fees could be comparable to the Santo Domingo schools.

They may or may not be.  Don't assume here. Use the websites and email the schools directly, that's why I posted them.

Definitely check the individual schools.  I think you may find the 2 schools in SD even more expensive than PC.  Each school has its benefits and disadvantages and pricing is just as different.

Thanks everyone. I'm lucky to have my bilingual husband who has volunteered to call the schools when they come back from break. I think he should be able to get the best info from them. I'll post back if he gets any info worth sharing!

One other question! Does anyone know about what the best schools are that use the most bilingual curriculum?

Thanks again! What a great support I can find in you all :)

Glad we can help.  No idea which has the best curriculum.  Sorry.
