They also support data projectors in all classrooms, the College website, software development, ICT infrastructure and computers for every member of the teaching staff. The availability of eTextbooks and the provision of the Text Book hire scheme also continue as valuable services to parents and students alike. A portion of the Resource Fee covers the cost of these books, copyright and printing fees.

Fees Policy

Tuition fee statements are emailed out before the start of each term. Payment can be made via Bpay direct from a bank account, over the phone or internet via credit card, in person using a credit card, cash or cheque. To further facilitate payment a standing authority for the College to charge a credit card may be completed which will allow the College to effect payment on the due dates. The College currently does not impose a surcharge on payment via credit card. Credit cards accepted: Visa and MasterCard. All fees for Years 5 – 11 are payable by four instalments each year. Year 12 fees are payable by three instalments. Payment is due at the start of term. A late fee payment penalty may apply if payment is not received by the due date. The College policy is to pursue all fees outstanding, including any costs incurred in the debt recovery process.

Sibling Discount:

When more than one son is attending St Pius X, the following discounts apply to the tuition fee component only:

  • 2nd son - 15%
  • 3rd son - 25%
  • 4th son - 50%

Withdrawal:

One term’s notice, in writing, must be given for withdrawal of a student. In the absence of such notice the equivalent of a full term’s fees plus 10% GST will be charged.

Fee Discounts:

The College assumes that you appreciate the importance of the payment of school fees. The College is not in a position to offer discounts other than sibling discounts (see Schedule of Fees for details). Our fee structure for such a large and well resourced College is quite low by the standards of most Catholic and Independent schools.

It is a condition of enrolment that all financial obligations are honoured.
