College Fees for 2023

Creek Street Christian College welcomes new enrolments for families interested in a Christian Education for their children. It is Creek Street Christian College’s policy to set its fees at a level that is affordable to most families within our community. The fees charged to families enable the College to provide resources and quality staff to deliver the excellent level of education Creek Street Christian College is known for and to help students discover all God made them to be.  Our academic programs are reinforced by our support program and provide excellent value to families wanting to provide the best education for their children.

Our fees include a Tuition Fee and a single Year Level Levy which is set by the College Council each year. Some schools elect to charge multiple levies throughout the year in addition to the Tuition Fees and it can be difficult for parents to determine an overall cost for that year and compare costs when evaluating the best College for their family situation. We believe that setting a single Year Level Levy allows families to understand their total financial commitment upfront and avoids confusion and financial strain throughout the year from unexpected charges by the College.

The single Year Level Levy includes contributions towards class sets of educational materials, consumables, equipment, technology, digital textbooks, online subscriptions, incursions, excursions and camps that are relevant to that year level. This enables students the opportunity to participate in extra-curricular activities without families needing to make a financial decision at the time of the activity.  In Secondary year levels, this also enables students to choose electives without an additional financial commitment impacting their choice of subjects.

Various discounts are available to parents including sibling discounts, health care card and ministers discounts.  Further information on these discounts are included below and in our 2023 Fee Information Sheet.
