School Fees

Tuition fees are charged for all Sydney Catholic Schools’ primary schools and secondary colleges, but vary according to the area in which the school is located. In addition to tuition fees, there are school based charges for specific subjects, excursions, specialist sports and building works, repairs and maintenance. A reduction applies for each additional child enrolled at the school.

Fee Assistance

We endeavour to offer an affordable Catholic education of the highest quality and there is a deeply held philosophical commitment at all levels (our archdiocese, system, parish and school) that no Catholic family should be denied a Catholic education due to a genuine incapacity to pay all, or part of, their children’s school fees.

Parents who need support to meet the cost of educating their child may be eligible for a bursary from the Catholic Education Foundation. Support is provided via three bursary categories; Financial Hardship Bursary, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Bursary and Refugee Bursary.
