Fee Structure


Gnyan Dham School is a Private School and does not receive any grant-in-aid. The expenditure of the School is wholly met from the fees. The School fees include Tuition Fees, charges for Games, Sports, Library, Science Laboratories, Computer Training Teaching Aids, Cultural Activities & General Stationery. Fees are paid for twelve months of the year i.e. April to March. Increase in the cost of living, Govt. Scales, Dearness Allowance and qualitative extra facilities provided in the school are the guiding factors when setting the fees.


Admission fees are to be paid at the time of admission. Caution deposit will be charged at the time of admission. Caution deposit is refundable without interest when the child leaves school. Submission of caution deposit receipt is a must for claiming the refund.


For slow learners, remedial classes after school can be given on payment of a reasonable charge, according to the requirement of the student. Extra classes will be conducted for those students who are not able to achieve passing percentage.


Fees are paid on quarterly basis at the beginning of every quarter. A fine will be levied for any delay in the payment of fees.


There is always a demand for admission to the School in all classes at the beginning of the session. It is therefore imperative that fees for the first quarter are paid by 15th April. If the fees are not paid, or there is no information regarding the reason for nonpayment of fees, the student's name will be struck off the rolls, and new admission will be made in the vacancy thus created.
