Getting admitted into this school is easy, however, it is not for an average family, because even those who considered themselves rich think twice before making their children, pupils of CIS as parents would cough out  almost N10 million depending on your child’s age and class for admission.

The price range of getting admission into CIS is quite cheap, as the registration fee costs only N40,000 for both primary and secondary students. However, this fee does not guarantee an automatic admission. Pupils of the CIS academic institution would be assessed to make sure they fit into the class, if successful, such a pupil would be assigned to a class and sport house where they start their academic life.

Successful candidates are required to pay a non-refundable fee of N2 million as acceptance fee, after which other processes, which includes submission of medical reports and all other formalises would take place.

For candidates/pupil who are admitted into pre school at CIS, parents are required and expected (Must) pay a whooping sum of N4.5 million per annum. Pupils of nursery and reception pay N4.7 million per annum, primary 1-6 pay N5.5 million per annum.

Students of the Children International School who are going to the secondary school (Day students) are required to pay the sum of N6.4 million Naira, while parents of boarding house students are expected to pay the sum of N8.9 million Naira.

Please take note that all the CIS school fees must be paid in full, latest two weeks after resumption, because failure to pay the fee within the deadline would attract 10 percent outstanding payment of the total sum.

You may be expecting that since Nigeria is suffering an economic recession, the school may be suffering, but this is the opposite, as residents of Funke Zainab Usman Street always witness heavy gridlock whenever the school closes for the day.
