School Fees

Tuition fees are charged for all Sydney Catholic Schools’ primary schools and secondary colleges, but vary according to the area in which the school is located. In addition to tuition fees, there are school based charges for specific subjects, excursions, specialist sports and building works, repairs and maintenance. A reduction applies for each additional child enrolled at the school.

Fee Assistance

We endeavour to offer an affordable Catholic education of the highest quality and there is a deeply held philosophical commitment at all levels (our archdiocese, system, parish and school) that no Catholic family should be denied a Catholic education due to a genuine incapacity to pay all, or part of, their children’s school fees.

Parents who need support to meet the cost of educating their child may be eligible for a bursary from the Catholic Education Foundation. Support is provided via three bursary categories; Financial Hardship Bursary, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Bursary and Refugee Bursary.

Family Financial Information Form

Families who do not qualify for a bursary but are experiencing financial hardship are able to complete a Family Financial Information Form to determine if they qualify for other forms of financial support at the College. Families who qualify for this level of support pay school fees on a sliding scale depending on their financial position.

Fees Payable

School accounts are sent home at the beginning of Terms 1, 2 and 3 on a 30 day account. Payment can be made using Bpay, cheque, cash or credit card. A range of alternate payment plans are available. These include dividing the fees over ten equal payments from February to November. Please contact the bursar for further details. Families who qualify for a bursary or receive support through the Family Financial Information Form are required to pay their account through Centrepay. A genuine inability to meet school account charges does not exclude access to Champagnat Catholic College for a child of a family genuinely committed to Catholic faith and practice. Parents in this situation though need to ensure they contact the school to discuss finances. The system supports families with an inability to pay fees but follows normal legal processes for families unwilling to pay fees.
