Variable Tuition

Our Variable Tuition Program

Since 1979, the International School of the Peninsula has been committed to educating students through a rigorous and dynamic bilingual program that inspires students to develop an inquisitive and responsible international mindset.
But an internationally-focused bilingual program is not only an investment of time, but also finances.

Given the unique nature of an ISTP education it is often an education that is desired by many, but difficult to afford or access.
At ISTP, we are committed to granting access to as many children as possible via our variable tuition program.
