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 fourth and subsequent school children.

A scholarship fund has also been established to provide scholarships to eligible students and are awarded on the basis of financial need. Information about the scholarships can be found on the Parramatta Diocese Catholic Education Office website.

Contact the school office for further details regarding fees and making payments.
