School Fees


Catholic schools aim to keep their fees as low as possible and can provide flexible payment arrangements for families. Students who meet enrolment criteria will not be refused enrolment because of a family's genuine inability to afford school fees.

School fees are set by the Parramatta Diocesan Schools Council each year.  There are very significant discounts for the second (25% reduction) and third (50% reduction) children enrolled from the one family. There are no fees for the forth and subsequent school children.

Annual Diocesan Tuition Fee can be paid upfront at the start of the year or as three equal payments in Terms 1, 2 and 3
