Boarding fees amount to N$62 300 for all grades. Parents also pay a membership of N$400.

School fees at Windhoek Gymnasium start at N$62 700 per year for all high-school grades.

A non-refundable registration fee of N$7 560 is charged in addition.

For boarding, the school charges N$36 900 per year as well as a hostel maintenance fee of N$2 700.
