Fees

In 2018 Federal funding to schools is increasing and in WA pressure is on parents for the affordability of quality education. The College Council has responded by decreasing fees for students to make our school more accessible in difficult times. Therefore fees have been reduced for 2018.

Fees are made up of the following:

    • Tuition fees per student
    • Amenities fee per student
    • Building levy per family

The table below shows the tuition fee structure for students in the Secondary College.  Tuition fees are subject to change by the College Council as and when deemed necessary.
