Tuition & Fees

An investment in a culturally diverse, international education is an investment in your child’s future.

As a WAB student, your child will have access to individuals, ideas and experiences that are not typical of a traditional school environment.

Fees above are listed in RMB (Chinese Yuan). Fees may be paid in RMB or other currencies. See Payment Methods, Terms and Conditions below for details.

WAB is pleased to offer half days for both Early Years 3 and 4 beginning in the 2022-23 school year. Based on the needs of their child, families can choose a half or full day option for their 3- and 4-year-old child to help them best transition to full day school.

Families applying to WAB are required to pay a non-refundable application fee of 2,100 RMB per applicant.

Tuition fees are inclusive of transportation, most after-school activities offered by the school, all required textbooks and school supplies. Students must purchase their own laptops and calculators. Mother Tongue Programs and individual instrument lessons are not included.
