International School of Hellerup is a not-for-profit educational institution that is recognised by and subject to Danish law and receives a subsidy from the Danish State, however, the school relies on the monthly school fees to cover operating expenses. The school fee must be paid for all 12 months of the year, including July. It is important that new families provide the school with their child’s Danish CPR or CDR number and registered address (as stated on the yellow Health Insurance Card, “Sundhedskort”) before September 1st. The school fee for a student enrolled at ISH without a CPR number and for whom the school, therefore, does not receive a state subsidy is DKK 5.000,- per month. Please see the note for students starting school after August 31st for more information.

Note for parents of Pre-K students
If your child is currently enrolled in Danish daycare, please remember to withdraw your child from their current daycare provider AND ‘pladsanvisningen’ in your municipality as soon as he or she has been accepted into ISH and you have paid the school deposit. This is to ensure that ISH will receive the state subsidy needed in order to offer the monthly Pre-K school fee listed above.
Families that withdrew late from their previous daycare provider (if this is in Denmark) will be required to pay a higher school fee of 5000 DKK per month for the month(s) when ISH does not receive a state subsidy for the student.
Application Fee (non-refundable): DKK 2.000,
Admin Fee: Regarding documentation for payments, ISH can only approve and sign for payments by the end of the month of the payment (paid before the 5th). I.e. school fees paid for June will only be visible in the school account after June 12th. Documentation can be expected within two weeks after the 12th. However, as the school is closed in July, documentation for July Payments can be expected by the middle of August. If the documentation requested differs from the regular documentation, ISH reserves the right to ask for a minor administration fee.
