Fee Assistance

The College understands that some families can find the payment of school fees difficult. This may be due to a low family income, or due to unexpected financial difficulties. The College has a genuine desire to help families afford Christian Education for their children, and therefore offer the following assistance: 

Income Concession Discount 

Discounted rates are offered on standard courses of study to families who have a financial need in the form of a low family income. To be eligible for an Income Concession Discount the combined gross family income needs to fall below $55 000.  Families wishing to apply for this discount can do so by filling out the 2018 Income Concession Application  If eligible, a discount will be given from the next school term. Please note discounts are not backdated.  

Bursary Assistance  

The College is able to offer bursaries to families experiencing severe financial difficulties. Funds for Bursary Assistance come from the College budget, as well as donations that are made by College families and staff for this specific purpose. Due to limited funds being available however, not all families who apply for Bursary assistance will be successful.  

If you have a genuine need and would like to be considered for Bursary Assistance, you can click to download a Bursary Application Form or obtain one from the Cashier’s Window located at front reception. Families may also be asked to attend an interview to discuss their application.  

For further information please phone Business Services on 9302 8777.
