    Image from Nanyang Girls High School While the majority of secondary schools in Singapore are funded by the government, certain government schools are autonomous.

    Image from Raffles Institution The independent schoolsin Singapore have a larger autonomy in its own management including curriculum, syllabus, textbooks, fee schemes, student admission, staff recruitment,and more.

These leading autonomous schools have lesser bureaucracy and the flexibility to design programs to help students reach their full capabilities. The independent schools charge a much higher school fee than Government-aided schools. For instance, Raffles Girls’ Schoolcharges $340 monthly and $4,080 annuallyfor the year 2020 and 2021 for Singapore citizens. The normal public secondary school fees range from only $5 to $25 monthly.

For example, the CHIJ Katong Convent has a prior connection with CHIJ Katong (primary).
