Non-Payment of School Fees

Cambridge Academy Ethiopia has a clear, transparent policy in response to non-payment or late payment of school fees.

Cambridge Academy Ethiopia will not dismiss students due to a delay in the payment of school fees. Cambridge Academy Ethiopia may withhold examination report cards, transfer certificates and/or re-registering a student until all outstanding dues are settled. Cambridge Academy Ethiopia will not prevent students from sitting for any end-of-term or end-of-year examinations or any examinations assigned during the term because of non-payment of school fees. 

Cambridge Academy Ethiopia will always act in a discrete manner when dealing with non-payment issues in order to protect the student from unnecessary attention and embarrassment.
