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
Full Fee per Student $1,900
Lower Income Fee per Student $1,140

 

What is included?
The tuition fee above covers all tuition, levies and charges for each child’s education.

Extra-curricular activities, excursions, 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 2022, your family’s gross income needs to be below approximately $60,440 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 manager can help you if you have any questions about applying for the lower income fee.
