College Fees

  • Tuition Fees are set by the College Board and reviewed annually.
  • Canterbury parents and carers are notified in writing around late September or early October each year, of any changes to the Fee Schedule for the following school year.

How it works…

Every semester, each family pays the three compulsory elements that cover their child/ren’s all-round education at Canterbury College = Tuition Fee + Single Resource Charge + Master Plan Building Fund Levy.

Part One: Tuition Fee

Tuition Fees are invoiced each semester and can be paid via one, two or five instalments per semester.

Sibling Discounts

Families with two or more children enrolled at Canterbury receive sibling discounts on their Tuition Fees.

All children must be listed together on the one fee account and must reside at the same household.

Sibling discounts apply to Tuition Fees only.

Part Two: Single Resource Charge (SRC)

This consolidated amount covers all core educational materials: textbooks, software licenses, learning apps, MyCC, cocurricular resources, outdoor education camps (Years 3-11), ID card, printing and copying, yearbooks, J/TAS Sport registration, and Surface Pro laptop computer with keyboard, stylus, protective case, carry bag, warranty and Accidental Damage Protection Plan (Years 4-11).

The SRC is specific to each year level and is billed every semester.

Part Three: Master Plan Building Fund Levy

This levy allows Canterbury to maintain or improve its educational, sport, performing arts and outdoor facilities, and prioritise its Master Plan projects, to optimise every child’s campus experience.

A levy of $190 is billed each semester to every family’s account.

New School Fee Payments: Direct Debit Platform Via Parent Lounge | Launches 2024

Dear Parents and Carers,

At Canterbury we are always looking at ways to improve the services we provide to our community and our operational efficiency.

So we are pleased to introduce a new and better solution for paying school fees by direct debit starting in 2024.

We have implemented a secure, paperless direct debit system within the TASS Parent Lounge, which will manage all direct debit payments for families opting to use the 2 or 5 instalment options for each semester’s fees.

This new system provides a secure payment platform, allows families to manage and track their school payments from within the TASS Parent Lounge, and is a more cost-effective solution.

From 2024, all Canterbury families will have access to the 2 x payment instalments option via the Parent Lounge, after they have received their 2024 fee statement.

Families wanting the 5 x payment instalments option, will need to complete this ONLINE APPLICATION FORM.

System Advantages

  • Flexibility – Parents can choose to pay via credit or debit card, bank account, or both.
  • Please Note: Bank account or debit card deductions will not incur any additional charges.
  • Convenience – Families can tailor a payment arrangement to suit their needs, as payments can now be made in 2 or 5 instalments each semester.
  • Security – There is no need for families to share credit card details and this payment platform is 100% PCI DSS compliant.
  • Clarity – Automated email advice keeps families aware of upcoming payment dates and amounts.

A preview of what this new direct debit platform will look like in 2024, including a step-by-step walk through, can be found by clicking this LINK HERE.

Canterbury recognises that these payment options may still not suit the budgets and income cycles of all families.

So Canterbury parents, or existing Edstart Plus users, who believe these fee payment arrangements will be incompatible with their family budget, should contact our Family Liaison Officer, Mrs Lisa Foster – T: 07 3299 0807 | E: 

Yours sincerely,

Mr Johan Louw

Director of Business and Finance
Canterbury College
