The cost of one year’s tuition at the MSG varies by location and number of students enrolled.The tuition cost for 2019/2020 is expected to be around 1400 USD. Please remember that it will depend on fixed costs such as facility rental and variable income such as size of enrollment. This cost includes books, lunches, and all other fees. The cost for boarding is expected to be around 1000 USD.
MSG-VTE is a Study Group that is a blend of classroom, distance, and independent education for grades 7-12 in the core subjects of Mathematics, Science, and English. In a typical month, students complete three weeks of work at home and one week together in the classroom. We allow MKs from various locations to be part of a school community, and hopefully help families continue to fulfill their calling. This can be people from Vientiane, other locations in Laos, and the surrounding countries.
The short answer is none. We do not have a Music, Art, or Sports program. The program is mostly academic. The High School is in class from 8 AM till 5 PM and there is little time for other activities. The Middle School runs from 8 AM till 3:30 PM. We encourage parents to involve their children in these activities during the three weeks at home.
The MSG has been running since 2007 and we have never been accredited. In general, we think that accreditation is good, but the nature of the MSG does not lend itself to an easy accreditation process. We believe we can accomplish our task without accreditation. Therefore, those who need an accredited diploma need to find another schooling option.
The MSG model has been operating in one Asian location since 2007. We have had a great deal of success, with students enjoying the program and families feeling well-supported.
Students with special needs are evaluated on a case by case basis. The previously operating MSG had success with many children with mild to moderate special needs. However we provide no specially trained teachers or guaranteed plans. Every teacher will make accommodations as they are able.
Due to the special and intense nature of the MSG (one intense week a month) it can be harder for students with special needs than at a regular school.
