  • What costs are included in your child's annual fees?

All textbooks will be covered within the school fees. Regular academic, sporting, and club trips within Nairobi are included in the tuition. Most trips will be planned and included in the shared calendar for the term.

  • What costs are NOT included in the fees?

    Each campus offers compulsory extra-curricular activities and some optional that are included in the school fees. These activities vary on every campus and usually take place during school hours. In addition, Nova Pioneer works closely with a number of external vendors who provide specialised activities or club activities which come at an extra cost and are not included in the fees. This will require families of those students wishing to participate to cover the extra costs. The specific additional extracurricular activities and corresponding costs are available on request.

    Furthermore, PTA annual fees and school trips are not included in the fees. Any costs above the fees will always be communicated in advance to parents.

  • What is included in the meal plan?

    Three full, healthy meals a day and two tea breaks will be provided by the school – and are included entirely in the price of the meals. Menu available upon request.

  • What costs will prospective parents incur during the enrolment process?

    Once a student has been accepted they will be expected to secure their spot by paying the following:

    1. Enrollment Fee (one time, non-refundable) : KES 4,000.
    2. Caution Fee (one time, refundable): KES 10,000 - to be returned upon graduation excluding any deductions made for damages caused during their Nova Pioneer tenure

  • What else do I need to know?

    Nova Pioneer may organize optional longer distance trips outside of Nairobi or the country. The cost of these optional trips will need to be covered by families. The details of the trip and cost will be communicated with families well in advance.
 Due to inflation, Tuition Boarding, and Meals fees may be increased at reasonable levels. Parents of Form 3 and Form 4 students can expect to see a modest increase in fees to cover special electives.
