School Fees

Diocesan Fees

A quality Catholic education is affordable and accessible for every family!


Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta (CEDP) is committed to providing an affordable quality Catholic education for families. We understand the financial demands placed on household budgets and do everything we can to keep fees low.

No child who meets the enrolment criteria will be refused enrolment or disadvantaged because of a family’s financial circumstance.

School fees are generally billed in instalments during Terms 1, 2 and 3. The fee is made up of three main parts:

1

Annual Diocesan Tuition Fees


These are set by Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta and are the same for every school.

There are significant sibling discounts for families with more than one child at one of our schools.

 

 

2

Diocesan Building Levy


This is set by Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta and is the same for every school.

There is only one Diocesan building levy per family.

 

 

3

School-Based Fees


These are determined by the school according to our needs and are billable for each child.

These fees help cover costs of things like teaching resources, technology, excursions etc.

Here's how we can help

Flexible payment options

Families enrolled in CEDP schools are offered flexible payment options at the start of each year. These options provide opportunities to select a payment plan that best suits you. Payments can be made by direct debit or BPay on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis at no additional charge.

 

Fee assistance

We understand financial circumstances can change and that these changes can impact on families. Please speak with your school principal confidentially if your family experiences financial difficulty or hardship so an appropriate arrangement can be made.

Compulsory Orientation Activities

During Orientation Week, students are involved in a First Aid course (cost $75) and a White Card course (cost $25). The costs of these activities are covered by the $100 enrolment fee paid prior to orientation. If your child already had a current first aid certificate and/or white card, these costs have been receipted against your school-based fees for Term 1.



Payment options

Acceptable methods of payment are by cash, cheque, EFTPOS, direct debit, BPAY, Postbillpay, credit card and Centrelink deductions.



Payment Arrangements

Families who are unable to pay fees by the due date must contact the Business Manager as soon as possible. We are able to offer families a payment arrangement to pay school fees on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis, over an extended time.



Financial difficulty

Families who are experiencing genuine financial hardship and are unable to fully pay school fees must contact the Business Manager as soon as possible. We may be able to offer a concession to families who submit relevant documents and attend an assessment interview. Please note that unless an assessment is done, you will be liable for full amount of school fees. These matters will be treated confidentiality, and will not affect your child’s education.



Notice to withdraw a student

Please note that a term’s notice in writing must be given to the principal before the removal of a student or a full term’s fees will be payable.
