Fees & Levies

Why do Catholic schools have fees?

To operate and provide quality learning environments, Catholic schools have fees to complement the Government funding received from the Commonwealth and Northern Territory Governments.  Schools strive to keep fees as low as possible.

The term 'school fees' includes tuition fees, levies and charges. Each school assesses the school fees necessary to meet their individual school and community operation requirements.

In doing this, they are firstly guided by the diocesan tuition fee set by the Catholic Education Council.
