Payment can be made via Bpay direct from a bank account, over the phone or via the College website with a credit card or in person using a credit card. 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 or by instalments. The College currently does not impose a surcharge on payment via credit card. Credit cards accepted: Visa and MasterCard. A late fee administration fee of $110 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.
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%
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.
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.
