Catholic Education South Australia

School Fees

Our commitment to our school families is to offer a high quality Catholic education that is accessible and affordable.

Annual School Fees 2021

Full Fee per Student $2,700
Lower Income Fee per Student $1,890

 

What is Included:

The tuition fee above covers all tuition, levies, excursions and charges for each child’s education.

Extra-curricular activities, camps, and uniforms are excluded and will be charged separately.
 

Lower Income Fee:

To be eligible for the lower income fee, you need to qualify as a low income family. This is determined by your family’s gross income and is a $ value set by the State Government.

In 2021, your family’s gross income needs to be below approximately $60,264 for a family with one school-age child. (The limit will vary depending on how many dependent children you have.)

Proof of income is required and applicants will need to apply via the State Government’s School Card scheme.

Our Finance Officer can help you if you have any questions about applying for the lower income fee.

Need help with School Fees?

If you are concerned about your ability to pay schools fees, we strongly encourage you to have a discussion with us.

We believe a family’s financial circumstances should not be a barrier to a student accessing a Catholic education.

If you have any questions, please contact our Principal, Phil Holmes or Finance Officer, Jo Freer via the School Office.
