2018

Cardijn College has an inclusive fee structure. Fee income is essential to providing the best education for your children and the operation of the College.

The billing system for 2018 will be as follows.

The entire year’s fee will be billed in February with an option to pay either in full by 30 March 2018 to obtain the 5% discount on the tuition portion of the fees or via direct debt.

For all families who do not elect to pay in full by 30 March 2018 a Direct Debit form will need to be completed.  Direct debit payments can be made weekly, fortnightly or monthly.  All direct debits will be administered through PaySmart and a direct debit form is enclosed for you to complete and return to the College.

The College fee structure comprises:

  • Tuition Fee
  • Composite Fee (covers all compulsory fees not covered in the Tuition Fee) This fee includes a 24 hour basic insurance cover for each student and will cover the students whilst on Work Experience. 

The fees for 2018 are listed below:

Year Level Tuition Fee Composite Fee Total
Year 8 $4350 $1220 $5570
Year 9 $4350 $1220 $5570
Year 10 $4960 $1220 $6180
Year 11 $5180 $1220 $6400
Year 12 $5180 $1220 $6400

 

Sibling Discounts
The following discount on Tuition Fee is given to families with more than one student at Cardijn:

  • 2 Students | $1000
  • 3 Students | $2785
  • 4 Students or more | Free Fees (which is equivalent to the Year 8 and 9 fees)

A further $250 reduction will be offered for each sibling attending a southern regional Catholic school.

Willunga Bus Service
Should your child require the use of the Willunga Bus Service to enable them to get to and from school, an additional amount of $26 per week will be charged to your account.

Advance Payment
If the entire annual fee is paid in full by 30 March 2018, there will be a 5% discount available on the Tuition Fee element. This is in recognition of the assistance advance payment gives to the College’s cash flow. The discount is unavailable for fees which are already receiving discounts other than Sibling Discount.

Families in Financial Difficulties (including School Card eligibility)
The College’s fee policy ensures that all students are given the opportunity to succeed by offering:

  • Family Discounts
  • Significant fee remissions for families on low income

 

Families Eligible for Schoolcard
Based on the recent announcement by the State Government in moving the eligibility threshold for Schoolcard the College will be undertaking a review of its fee policy.  We anticipate this review to be completed by the end of the year with the outcome communicated to you in due course.

Families Not Eligible for Schoolcard
Families who do not qualify for School Card, but who feel they would have difficulty in meeting the fee payment requirements due to their circumstances, may qualify for partial fee remission. Please contact the Business Manager (Mr Johnny Ioannou) on 8392 9500 to arrange an appointment to discuss your situation.

All discussions and arrangements are in the strictest of confidence.

Absence
Students who are absent from school for extended periods of time due to illness, injury or other reasons (eg travel or family commitments) are still liable for payment of full tuition fees for the period of their absence.

Withdrawing from Cardijn College
A notification period of one term must be given prior to a family withdrawing a child from the school.  A term’s fee will be charged if a child is withdrawn without the required notification.

From time to time there are circumstances which prevent a family from giving adequate notification.  The Principal or Business Manager, at their discretion, may waive the one term notification period.  However your request must be presented in writing.
