    Woah, that's extreme, you'd have to be on a decent amount of money to afford that. Our Mortgage is probably about that per year.

    OMG! I can't understand why it's so expensive, how much do they pay their teachers??

    ETA Remember though, the more children you have the cheaper the subsequent children are.
    Yeah, they have the subsequent children reductions, but not sure how much in high school, in the primary school the fees only double after the 4th kid, so it's pretty reasonable.

    Discounts apply to the second and subsequent children (excluding Pre-prep). This means that if you have more than one child enrolled, your tuition fee will be less than the simple addition of single students. Details of fees for a variety of year level combinations are included at the back of this document.

    A Fee Support Scheme is in place to assist low-income families to access the benefits of our school. Fee Support applies to one calendar year only so a new application is needed each year.

    Maximum Family charge for 2012 is $8,240, or $9,050 where enrolment includes the PrePrep year.
    Standard Tuition Fees
    – Single students only
    Below are the basic charges for one student in each level of the school.
    Single Student Charges
    Base Annual Fee 2012

    One Pre-preparatory child
     One Primary student (Prep to Year 7)
     One Secondary student (Year 8-12)
    - includes $560 Secondary Surcharge
    That's pretty much on par with their school, so that's good to know it's about right for the region we're in.

    Wow, that's a crazy amount of money for school.

I think it is about $8500 for final years- which is considered pretty reasonable compared to other private schools.
    Our local department catholic high schools are around $2000 a year with similar discounts for subsequent kids
    That's pretty good $2000 a year, good to know they'll have the fees reduce for each child, it's not much though i think we still have to pay full tuition per child and another levy, but you only pay the capital (building) and P&F per family, so your fees will still end up $3000+. Least i have time to prepare and hopefully get myself into a good career by then

    Sounds great to me!!! Cheapest ones on our area start at 11k plus building, resource fee ect. The one I want to send our kids to is 22k a year in year 12 Not going to happen unless we win the lotto or somehow massively increase our wages.

    Most likely will be looking at 12-15k per year for a catholic co-ed high school

    eta: we are in Adelaide, not an overly expensive area either.

    Default School Fees for highschool

    We have just enrolled DD in a private school in Perth. It one of the best ones in Perth. 5 day Pre-Kindy is $12500 a year. Come year 12 it's just under $20k.
    Seems a small price to set your child up for life. Not only with education and the facilities but the opportunities are endless and they are mixing with 'the right' people, in Perth it's very much who you know in my opinion.

    Default School Fees for highschool

    V8 that is on the lower side of school fees.

    My children are down for 3 high schools.

    The first is co ed and currently $13,000 per year

    The boys high schools is $5500 a year or $6000 a year.

    The girls school is $6000 a year each or the other school is $4000 for both girls which is pretty amazing.

    It just so happened after a lot of research my preferred schools happened to be on the lower end of the scale. So very happy about that.

    Eta. This is Brisbane all on the northside. Also the subsequent child discount seems significantly less then in primary schools.
