Tuition Fee Information
Our vision has always been to offer affordable Christian schooling, while recognising that parents and students expect a high level of facilities, staff, resources and technology, all of which contribute to the costs of running a school.
Cedar College strives to balance these costs with our vision of affordable education. The current Fee Schedule is shown below and is also available for download. A Direct Debit form for fee payments is also available for download.
The 2018 School Fees include the full year’s tuition expenses as well as stationery and exercise books. While most of our camp fees are also covered by the tuition fees, some camps and extra-curricular activities, such as Inter-school sport teams, private instrumental lessons and other optional activities and certain subjects will have an associated cost, not covered by tuition fees.
Discount for early payment
If the full year’s fees are paid by the due date for the Term 1 fees, a 5% discount on tuition fees will apply to payments made by direct deposit, OR 4% discount if paid by Credit Card (VISA/Mastercard).
Discount for multiple children
Our fee structure includes progressive discounts for multiple children from the same family attending Cedar College, with the fourth sibling being free.
