School Fee Information
Our vision has always been to offer affordable Christian schooling. We also recognise that parents and students expect a high level of facilities, staff, resources and technology, all of which contribute to the costs of education
Cedar College strives to balance these costs with our vision of affordable education. The 2021 Fee Schedule is shown below and is also available for download. A number of fee payment options are available which can be arranged via a Direct Debit form if desired.
The 2021 Tuition Fees includes the full year’s tuition expenses as well as stationery, exercise books, excursions, camps and laptops for students in Years 7-12. Some activities (such as Inter-school sports events, private instrumental lessons, personal items for the Year 10 Bushwalking Camp and certain Senior School VET 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.
When do School Card rates apply?
When a family has been assessed as eligible School Card holders by Centrelink and the Department of Education and Children’s Services, reduced tuition fees may apply. A separate School Card fee schedule and application form, are available from the Front Office for qualifying families.
Fees shown are valid for 2021 school year, and are subject to price increase for 2022 school year.
