School Fees

 

When applying for enrolment in a Catholic systemic school within the Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn, parents and guardians undertake that they accept and support the life, nature and identity of the Catholic School. This commitment to Catholic education also means a financial commitment, which entails the responsibility and obligation to pay all required school fees.

 

Tuition Fee: This is set by the Archiocesan Catholic Education Commission and used to supplement Government per capita grants and staff salaries.

School levies: This is set by the School Board and used to cover administrative, maintenance and educational costs.

Building Fund: This fund is tax deductible and used for the ongoing maintenance and provision of educational services to Catholic families in Canberra.

Activities and Excursion Levy: This levy provides assistance with excursions, school performances and other activities the children are involved in during the year.

Sports: This charge covers the charges applicable for school services providers supporting the curriculum.
