Fees and services for IB World Schools

The International Baccalaureate® is a not-for-profit organization.

We cover our main operational costs by charging fees to schools for providing services to support the implementation of our programmes. We value our reputation for providing high-quality services.

All payments to be made shall be made in cleared funds, without any deduction or set-off and free and clear of and without deduction for or on account of any taxes, levies, imports, duties, charges, fees and withholdings of any nature now or hereafter imposed by any governmental, fiscal or other authority save as required by law. If a school is compelled to make any such deduction, it will pay to the IB such additional amounts as are necessary to ensure receipt by the IB of the full amount which IB would have received but for the deduction.

Annual school fee

IB World Schools pay an 'annual school fee' for each programme they are authorized to teach, but if schools offer two or more programmes, other than the IBCC, they pay a reduced fee to reflect their greater commitment.

  • IB World Schools offering two programmes from a combination of PYP, MYP and DP (excluding IBCC) receive a 10% discount, which is calculated on the single lowest fee.
  • IB World Schools offering all three programmes that include PYP, MYP and DP (excluding IBCC) receive a 10% discount, which is calculated on the combined two lowest fees.
