Joining Mercedes College is an investment in the future that will deliver immeasurable returns. We are committed to providing a first-class private education with tuition fees and costs for additional courses, excursions and activities, that are value for money. We strive to ensure every girl receives more than she ever imagined for less than you thought possible.
The College is also conscious of financial pressures that exist for many families as we navigate through unprecedented COVID times and work with families to ensure a positive outcome is achieved for all.
2024 Tuition Fees
All families who choose to send their children to a Catholic school are required to pay fees.
Fees are annual amounts payable by three (3) instalments in February, May and August and cannot be deferred without prior agreement with the College. Tuition Fees have been set, after taking into account the level of per capita funding, provided by the Australian and State Government.
All Tuition Fees are to remain fixed throughout the year unless significant and unforeseen circumstances arise. Ongoing enrolment at Mercedes College indicates a parents/care givers acceptance of the Tuition Fee structure.
Enrolment Application Fee
A non-refundable fee of $110 (inc. GST) is payable on registration.
Enrolment Acceptance Fees
A non-refundable Enrolment Acceptance Fee of $800 is payable within  weeks of acceptance of the offer of a place at the College and will be credited to your first account. Subsequent to the completion of the enrolment process, should parents find it necessary to withdraw their Acceptance, the following arrangements will apply to the Enrolment Acceptance Fee:
- Notification of withdrawal received prior to 31 March of the preceding year of enrolment – 50 % refund of fee paid.
- Notification of withdrawal received after 31 March – No refund of fee paid.
A compulsory levy of $1200 per annum is charged per family. It assists with capital development of new learning facilities and major refurbishment of existing facilities.
A sibling rebate will apply when two or more daughters are enrolled at the College. The first student pays full fees, the second student receives a 10% tuition fee discount, and the third and subsequent student(s) receive a 20% tuition fee discount.
Information Technology Levy
A levy of $540 per annum is charged per family. It partially offsets the costs of providing information and communication technology across all learning areas.
Before completing an Enrolment Application form, we encourage families to visit us and attend one of our campus tours. Alternatively, you may wish to register for one of Open Days. Registrations are currently being accepted for the Open Day to be held on Tuesday 12 March.
