College Fees

MacKillop Catholic College provides educational services and charges fees and levies to assist in the funding of the provision of these services on an equitable basis.

The setting of tuition fees and other charges for MacKillop Catholic College is the responsibility of the Tasmanian Catholic Education Commission. The level of fees charged annually is based on:

  • The level of private income required to effectively maintain the services required by the College
  • The general fluctuations of costs and prices within the community
  • The limits of affordability of the families supporting the College.

MacKillop Catholic College aims to keep fees as inclusive as possible. We try to minimise additional payments that may be required throughout the year. Accordingly, tuition fees cover items such as:

  • The purchase and replacement of class textbooks which are loaned to students
  • Classroom materials and consumables used in all subjects including Art, Technology, Health and Physical Education, Catering, etc
  • Class camps and excursions including bus hire and venue hire
  • School competition entry fees
  • Sports carnivals and training for school sports teams
  • Extra-curricular activities provided by the College
  • Reflection days, College feast days, liturgies, commissioning and thanksgiving masses
  • Information and communication technology resources

Items that may be covered by additional levies include:

  • Interstate or overseas trips (these trips are optional)
  • Fundraising for charities
  • Outdoor Education levy (elective subject)
  • Other optional activities or excursions that may arise.

Tuition Fees for 2024 are $4,830 (excluding levies)

Introduction of the lease-to-own laptop model

In 2023, the MacKillop Catholic College Advisory Board approved the introduction of a lease-to-own laptop model to replace the fee-for-rent charge. This significant change will ensure that parents and caregivers retain ownership of the College approved and maintained laptop after three years (assuming full payment of the College’s ICT Levy).

The College’s ICT Committee has recommended the newly released Microsoft Surface Go 3 as the preferred device for students. From 2024, an annual $630 ICT levy will be included on the fee statement. 2024 is the second year of the implementation and students in years 7, 8, 10 and 11 will be provided with a laptop under the stipulated model, accompanied by the applicable fee. This fee will cover annual lease payments for the device, a laptop case, full student access to all required software (including the Microsoft Office suite), student access to JacPLUS (the College’s online text and resource provider) and student and parent access to SEQTA (the College’s student management system).



Notice of Withdrawal

The College’s Student Enrolment Application Form states that written notice of at least ten school weeks is required prior to the withdrawal of a student from the school. Where notice is not provided, full tuition fees may need to be paid to the school for the number of school weeks where the notice was not provided. This includes enrolment withdrawal prior to the start of the school year. In 2024, this equated to a charge of $1,207.50.

A Confirmation of Enrolment Fee of $150.00 applies to each acceptance.

Please be advised:

  • Tuition fees are invoiced in February.
  • Families can enter payment plans to pay fees over 10 months (February to November).
  • Family discounts will be calculated in accordance with the TCEC School Fee Assistance Policy. Family discounts will apply on the basis of the total number of children attending Catholic schools (all of the children do not have to be at MacKillop Catholic College).
  • Families can claim the family discount by completing the payment arrangement form on an annual basis. The family discounts only apply to tuition fees.

Fees are subject to change on an annual basis.
