The College Fee Structure (CFS) for 2017 is provided for your information.
It is important that parents read and understand operation of fees and relief schemes. The payment of fees in a timely manner is essential to enable the school to fund commitments and provide a quality education for our students.
Parents can pay their account by Bpay, Centrepay, Direct Debit and Eftpos on a weekly, fortnightly, monthly, per term or annual basis. Many families have found this to be a great advantage to budget this very important expense.
School Fees have three basic components:
Tuition Costs (Sydney Catholic Schools)
These fees are charged by the Catholic Education Office and are standard across the Systemic Catholic Schools in the Sydney Archdiocese. The annual fees per year are reported in the CFS and also a sibling reduction for the second and third child attending Catholic Systemic Schools. If you have four or more children attending Catholic Systemic Schools, the fourth and subsequent children are not charged any system fees.
Over recent years, many schools have undertaken major building projects to provide for refurbished or new facilities. Increasingly, the funds to finance these major capital projects have been raised by the establishment of a Building Levy. The levies are an equitable way of ensuring that the debts that have been incurred can be serviced and that provision is made for meeting future needs. The levy is $469 per family for the 2017 school year.
The levy applies across the Archdiocese. For families with children attending more than one Archdiocesan school, the levy costs will be evenly distributed between the schools attended.
