School Fees

Ensuring a quality Catholic education is affordable and accessible for children


There are three levels of annual fees, billed in instalments during Terms 1, 2 and 3:

  • Annual Diocesan Tuition Fees set by the Catholic Education Office
  • Diocesan Building Levy set by the Catholic Education Office
  • School-based fees.


Discounts on Fees

Catholic schools in the Diocese of Parramatta are committed to providing an affordable quality Catholic education for families. We understand the financial demands placed on families and seek to keep the fees as low as possible. No child who meets the enrolment criteria will be refused enrolment or disadvantaged because of a family's financial circumstances.

There are very significant discounts for the second (25% reduction) and third (50% reduction) children enrolled from the one family. There are no fees for the fourth and subsequent children.

If you have children in other Diocesan schools, please click on the Sibling Discount Applicable Schools attachment to see if a discount will be automatically applied.

If any of your children attend a school listed where a sibling advice notice is required, please complete and return the Sibling Registration for Diocesan Tuition Fees form.

Please note that for automatic discounts to apply the residential address on each enrolment form must be the same. It is up to parents to advise schools of other siblings in order to receive the discount. Please note that discounts are not backdated.



Flexible Payment Options

There are a range of options available to assist families WITH THE PAYMENT OF FEES.

No student will be refused enrolment because of a family’s genuine inability to pay fees.

Diocesan Building Levy

The Diocesan Building Levy enables us, through our capital works program, to meet the demand for new schools and new classes in high growth areas, and to continue to maintain all schools to a high standard. All families with one or more children in a Parramatta Diocesan school (or at St Dominic's College Kingswood) are required to pay the annual Diocese of Parramatta Diocesan Building Levy.

 

Diocesan Education Fee Temporary Residents (DEFTR)

The DEFTR is payable per each new student on the following visa numbers:
173, 401, 402, 411, 415, 416, 417, 418, 419, 420, 421, 422, 423, 426, 427, 428, 442, 456, 457, 459, 462, 476, 485, 497, 580, 600, 601, 651, 675, 676, 679, 685, 884, 944, 956, 976 and 977 including where any of these are the preceding visas for families on bridging visas 010 to 090.

 


School-Based Fees

Each school also charges fees that go toward resources that may include excursions, cost of buses, photocopying, utilities, maintenance of buildings and grounds, camps and reflection days.

School fee payments are charged annually, with the payments made in 3 equal instalments over the year.

These fees cover Technology, Resources and Activities used to support learning in all subjects and any co-curricular activities. As the cost of all these activities and resources are subsidised by the college, there are no refunds if an individual student does not attend a particular activity. The only exception to this policy is the situation where a student is genuinely unable to attend a 3 day camp or retreat for a legitimate reason that is provided well in advance of the camp or retreat. In such cases a portion the cost for this camp/retreat will be credited to the account.
