Tuition and Fees
HIS Tuition and Fees are payable annually, however, tuition payment will be accepted on a quarterly basis if necessary. Invoices will be mailed in July. For students entering after Opening Day, payment is due prior to enrollment.
Special Covid-19 Notice - HIS is operating in accordance with local government instructions given the exceptional circumstances of a nationwide, government-initiated school closure. As such, there will be no reimbursement of tuition fees offered. Teachers continue to work both on-site and remotely to support families and offer the best education services we can under these challenging circumstances.

A Special "Thank You" from the Executive Board
The HIS Executive Board recognizes that our tuition and fees would be significantly higher were it not for the generous support of the City of Sapporo, the Hokkaido Government, and the US Government, as well as other individual donors. The Board would like to thank the community who contribute so much to HIS in so many ways.
