Debenture and Capital Levy Scheme

To provide for repairs, maintenance and improvement of the school’s facilities for the benefit of all students, Stamford American School Hong Kong raises funds via

  • the issuance of Debentures, and
  • the collection of Capital Levies.

If you are interested in subscribing for an Individual Debenture, please kindly contact us at admissions@sais.edu.hk.

If you are interested in finding out more about our Standard Corporate Debenture, Standard Plus Corporate Debenture or Platinum Debenture, please kindly contact our Director of Corporate Liaison at admissions@sais.edu.hk.

Capital Levy
Capital Levy (Option A) - One Time Fee 2020-2021$150,000Valid for the student's duration at Stamford, payable within 7 calendar days from date of offer. The Capital Levy is mandatory for children who are admitted to Stamford without a debenture.
Capital Levy (Option B) - Annual Fee 2020/2021$30,000Valid for the 2020/2021 academic year, payable upon acceptance. The Capital Levy is mandatory for children who are admitted to Stamford without a debenture.
Debentures    
Individual Debentures (for individuals) $500,000
  • For non-corporate applicants
  • Valid for the nomination of one child for priority admission
  • Valid for 8 consecutive academic years from enrollment
  • If the nominated child fails to meet our eligibility requirements, the full amount is refundable
  • After the debenture expires, if students are still at Stamford, you are required to either have a debenture or pay a capital levy
  • The debenture is refundable at a reduced value that depends on the academic year in which a child leaves the school. The refunded debenture value will be reduced by any outstanding fees payable to the school. 

Stamford issues a very limited number of optional debentures for corporate employers. There are three types of corporate debentures in the below priority order:

  • Platinum Corporate Debenture                 - HK$5,000,000
  • Standard Plus Corporate Debenture        - HK$3,000,000
  • Standard Corporate Debenture                 - HK$2,000,000
     

Please contact our Director of Corporate Liaison at admissions@sais.edu.hk for further information. 

The holder of a debenture obtains priority in admissions, subject to Stamford’s eligibility requirements. Corporate Debentures (Platinum, Standard Plus and Standard) confer the highest priority in admissions, followed by Individual Debentures.

Debenture holders also receive priority in admissions if they seek to transfer to another school in the Cognita family of schools in Asia during the life of the debenture.

All children who are nominated by a debenture are exempt from the mandatory capital levy.

Discounts

Capital Levy Fee: 50% discount for enrollment of a third child from the same family and a full waiver of the Capital Levy Fee for a fourth child and beyond.
(Discounts are applied from the oldest to the youngest. For example, if there are three children in the family, the youngest child will receive the discount.)
