School Fees

A quality Catholic education is affordable and accessible for every family!

Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta (CEDP) is committed to providing an affordable quality Catholic education for families. We understand the financial demands placed on household budgets and do everything we can to keep fees low.

No child who meets the enrolment criteria will be refused enrolment or disadvantaged because of a family’s financial circumstance.

School fees are generally billed in instalments during Terms 1, 2 and 3. The fee is made up of three main parts:


Annual Diocesan Tuition Fees

These are set by Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta and are the same for every school.

There are significant sibling discounts for families with more than one child at one of our schools.




Diocesan Building Levy

This is set by Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta and is the same for every school.

There is only one Diocesan building levy per family.




School-Based Fees

These are determined by the school according to our needs and are billable for each child.

These fees help cover costs of things like teaching resources, technology, excursions etc.

Here's how we can help

Flexible payment options

Families enrolled in CEDP schools are offered flexible payment options at the start of each year. These options provide opportunities to select a payment plan that best suits you. Payments can be made by direct debit or BPay on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis at no additional charge.


Fee assistance

We understand financial circumstances can change and that these changes can impact on families. Please speak with your school principal confidentially if your family experiences financial difficulty or hardship so an appropriate arrangement can be made.
