Fee structure

St Patrick’s College Tuition Fees and Charges

In forming the budget every year, we are mindful of balancing the need for quality staff, ongoing capital works, seeking out cost savings and offering as broad a curriculum as possible to ensure excellent learning opportunities and facilities for your son. As we come through the most challenging of years for our community, we have made every effort to contain tuition fee increases.

We trust that this helps maintain the affordability of an Edmund Rice education for our community, however, while we need the vast majority of families to pay the fees in full, we want to assure our families having difficulty in managing their school fee commitments that some level of confidential concession support is there for those in genuine need.

Families are encouraged to pay the tuition fees in full. Alternatively, a Payment Arrangement Plan needs to be entered into, with the account to be finalised by 30 November each year. Your first statement will be sent to you during the first week of February along with a payment arrangement form so you can accurately plan your payments over the year. This form must be completed and returned to the Finance Office no later than 28 February each year.

Should you have any queries about any of these matters please do not hesitate to call in the Finance Office.

The College understands that families may experience financial hardship that leaves them unable, reasonably, because of illness, unemployment, or other genuine circumstances, to fulfil all the financial obligations of enrolment. Where these circumstances arise please contact the Finance Office through accountsreceivable@stpats.vic.edu.au to arrange for a concession application form and an appointment with the Business Manager. Where appropriate your application will be considered confidentially with the College Finance Committee.
