Tuition Fees for Phorms Frankfurt Secondary School

In order to enable as many children as possible to access our educational programs, Phorms Frankfurt tuition fees are income-based.

Those fees are based on the gross annual income from two years before the start of school, (e.g. for the school year 2020/2021 we look at the income tax statement of 2018). The gross annual income includes all income from both legal guardians in that specific year. It is not possible to set off income against “negative income” (such as loss on rental income or leases).

Therefore, we kindly ask all parents to submit proof of income to us on an annual basis unless they opt to pay the maximum tuition fees voluntarily (€ 1100/month for secondary school). The minimum tuition fee after siblings discount is €250/month. Phorms fees cover one year of schooling and are paid in twelve instalments beginning on 1st August.

The income-based tuition fees do not include extra charges for food, school materials and field trips as well as early morning or afterschool care, school bus or holiday camps which need to be booked separately.

Tax Deductability

30% of school fees for Primary Schools and Secondary Schools are tax deductible as extraordinary expenses. This does not include accommodation, day care or food charges for the child. Since 2008, a maximum amount of 5,000 Euros has been stipulated. This means that parents may not deduct more than 5,000 Euros per child (30% of 16,667 Euros) from their tax liability for school fees paid (§ 10 Paragraph 1 Clause 9 of German Income Tax Act, Special Expenses). Day Care costs (and parent contributions to Nursery and Pre-School) may also be deductible. The child must live in the household and be under 14 years of age. Two thirds of the child care expenses up to a maximum amount of 4.000 Euros per child may be deducted as operating costs when determining the gross family income.

Phorms Education cannot accept any liability for the accuracy of the above information. Parents should discuss all matters directly with their tax consultant.
