Detailed fee schedule and other information not provided.

School name not confirmed by GEMS, but is GNA according to KHDA and an article in Forbes magazine 02 April 2014 which said ... In Dubai he [Sunny Varkey] plans to open the ultrapremium GEMS Nations Academy (annual fees: $40,000) next year, offering an American curriculum "for the 21st century."

Other possible names might include GEMS World Academy (another one) or GEMS American Academy Dubai but that might be confused with the already existing GEMS Dubai American Academy. Name also seen as GEMS National Academy (Dubai) in at least one reference. Or perhaps GEMS International Academy?

Location possibly Emirates Hills area (KHDA information).

09 February 2014 (WAM): Headmaster or principal will be Tom B. Farquhar. Currently headmaster of the Sidwell Friends School, an elite private school in Washington, USA. School students and ex-students include children of several US presidents (Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Richard Nixon, Theodore Roosevelt). School name not given, press release said "... a ground-breaking new American-curriculum school which will open in September 2015 in Dubai."
