2021 Mid Year Intake – Free Tuition

Reception students who join a 2021 mid-year intake at a Catholic school will get free tuition in Terms 3 and 4.

The initiative is one of a number announced by the South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools (SACCS) that are designed to reduce the financial burden on families.

All Diocesan schools will offer the 2021 Term 3 Reception intake to parents free of charge. The free intake will include tuition fees and compulsory charges. It will exclude uniforms and extra-curricular costs.

The South Australian Commission for Catholic Schools is also encouraging separately governed schools to offer the tuition waiver.

The announcement stems from the Making Catholic Education More Affordable initiative.

Last year the fee structure of every Catholic Primary School in the State was reviewed with all schools reducing their fees for 2021. These schools also introduced a lower income fee that incorporates a near-standardised 40% discount off the full fee for all qualifying fee payers.

“While the South Australian community is beginning to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are acutely aware that there are some families who continue to be impacted,” says Dr McGoran, Director, Catholic Education South Australia.
