School Fees and Levies are an integral part of Catholic Education Schooling. Catholic schools have fees to help meet the shortfall in Government Funding. The reasonable fee structure is essential for Catholic schools to operate and provide the high-quality education, quality leaning environments, and advanced resources that parents/carers rightly expect.
All Catholic schools strive to keep fees as low as possible. The term ‘school fees’ includes tuition fees and levies. Each school assesses the school levies necessary to meet their individual school and community operation requirements. In doing this they firstly guided by the diocesan tuition fees set by Catholic Education Council.
In keeping with the Gospel values, no child will be refused a Catholic education due to financial difficulty which has been verified by the school. There are discounts available for Multi-student families and for those who have a Pensioner and Health Care Card that are means tested. Please contact the College Office for further information regarding discounts and concessions.
There are several methods of payment available at the school office which include: Credit Card, EFTPOS, Cash (correct value) as well as Direct Debit and Online banking.
Statements will be issued at the beginning of Term 1. Families have the option to pay in full during Term 1 and receive a 5% discount on tuition fees. Another option is to enter a payment plan agreement and pay by regular instalments.
A failure to organise payment plans may lead to an overdue notice and fees recovery notes from an external finance manager. All costs associated with the collection of overdue accounts but not limited to professional collection costs, legal fees and disbursements will be recoverable by the school in addition to the overdue amount and any interest charged. This can cause upset; however, we have a responsibility at the school to manage budgets
If at any stage fees present a problem please consult with the Principal.
The Fee structure can be found in our Parent Ready Reference Book here.
