Tuition Fee

The fee, set by the Catholic Education Commission and collected by the College, to support the curriculum, pay all salaries and the CEO Levy, which administers Catholic Education in the Archdiocese.

Sibling Discounts

If you have more than one child at St John Paul II College or another CE systemic primary school or secondary college, CE offers a discount on the Tuition Fee. Sibling discounts will be applied for the second and subsequent siblings at other CECG  ACT secondary colleges as follows:

Oldest Child Full Fee
Second Child 20% Discount
Third Child 50% Discount
Fourth Child No charge for the fourth and subsequent children

College Levy

The College Levy is the portion of fees that covers costs associated with general resources (eg. subject and school consumables) and facilities such as information technology support. It includes cover for all excursions under $20, transportation to school carnivals and maintenance costs with the College’s ongoing grounds improvements and maintenance program.

Building Fund Contribution

The Building Fund Contribution is a voluntary fee applied per family, and payable at the school attended by the eldest student. This is a tax-deductible donation of $840 per year per family. It is through the generosity of all parents in the Catholic Education ACT system that we have our beautiful facilities at St John Paul II College.

If you do not intend to contribute in 2024, please write to the College by Friday, 12 January 2024, requesting that the Building Fund not be charged.
You need to let the College know each year if you do not wish to be charged.

Year 12 Fees

Total annual fees are invoiced over three Terms, rather than four. All Year 12 School Fees must be paid by the end of September 2024.
