When your child is offered a place at Carey, we charge an enrolment fee to secure your child’s enrolment.

The enrolment fee is $1800 per student for ELC to Year 12. This fee is non-refundable and non-transferable.

Tuition Deposit

If your child is entering in ELC, Prep, Year 5 or Year 7, we require a tuition deposit of $2000.

This deposit will be credited to the April school fee account in the year your child commences if they enter in Prep, Year 5 or Year 7. If your child enters in ELC, the tuition deposit will be credited to the April school fee account in your child’s Prep year.

The tuition deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable.
