    A discount of $100 per family is also given to those families with children attending a Catholic Primary School.

    Student Withdrawal

    At least one term’s notice must be given in writing to the Registrar by the parent/guardian if the student is to be withdrawn. In this instance, one full term’s fees will be retained and the balance of fees refunded (if fees are paid in advance).

    Saint Ignatius College Geelong Building Fund

    The fund assists with financing the construction or maintenance of the College buildings. It is a voluntary donation which can be claimed as a tax deduction. The amount of $300 per family per year is the usual contribution that families give to assist us in keeping our facilities in the excellent condition that they are.

    Other Information

    Goods and Services Tax

    School fees and levies are in general exempt from GST.

    Fee Payments

    A School Fee and Building Fund Payment Plan form will be sent out to each family before the end of the school year offering a variety of fee payment options.

    Please contact the Finance Officer should you wish to discuss any of these.

  • Bursaries


    The College provides some supported places by way of a bursary for families who would like their daughter/son to attend the College but would struggle to pay the fees.

    We strive to provide a place for students who can demonstrate commitment to the College’s mission and vision and passionately pursue excellence.

    We offer a limited number of bursaries for prospective students entering Years 7, 9 and 11 who would otherwise be unable to attend the College.

    This bursary is by way of a contribution to the payment of school fees. This support is dependent on the bursary application and available funds.

    Please note that a bursary applies to fees and not to levies.

    Bursaries may be available for up to 6 years. As financial circumstances may change, there is a requirement for the bursary to be reviewed during the second year of assistance.

    Criteria and Information

    • Academic performance, sporting talents, performing arts talents and community involvements will be used to select successful applicants. The bursary is an amount paid towards the tuition fee for the applicable year.
    • Priority is given to children who are baptised Catholic, who may be attending a Catholic school and whose parents are actively involved in a parish community.
    • The bursary amount will be expended from available funds in the Saint Ignatius College Geelong Bursary Trust.
    • Final approval for bursary support will be based on an outcome of an interview with the Principal at which the parent(s)/guardian(s) will also be present
    • The names of successful applicants remain confidential.
