Fees – Chevalier College


Chevalier College welcomes families willing to support the Catholic ethos, regardless of their personal, financial and pastoral circumstances. Families supporting the Catholic ethos will not be denied a place at Chevalier College due to an inability to afford full fees.

Fee payment enquiries may be directed to our Accounts Office on 4861 1488 during office hours:  8:00am to 4:00pm (Monday to Friday, including school holidays, except public holidays).

Commencing 2023

The College has partnered with Edstart to improve our school fee payment options. With the aim of providing additional flexibility with fee payments, we are transitioning families to Edstart Plus. Commencing January 2023, the College will no longer be accepting school fees directly.

With Edstart Plus, families will have access to more options with their school fee payments, including:

  • Options to pay weekly, fortnightly, monthly, per term, or annually – by selecting the schedule that works for you.
  • The ability to choose a preferred day for when payments are made.
  • The option to spread your fees during the year over a full 12-month period instead of 10 months.
  • The flexibility to adjust payments at any time.

There are no fees or charges for using Edstart Plus for your Chevalier College tuition fees.

To set up your Edstart account, please visit edstart.com.au/chevalier. Edstart will then pay your College fees on your behalf when they are due and activate your regular repayments as part of your plan.

Building Fund

The College Building Fund allows families to make a voluntary, tax-deductible contribution. The Building Fund has been part of Chevalier for almost all of its history and has traditionally been a vital part of our income. Keeping it voluntary qualifies any contribution by you as a tax-deductible donation, rather than having a mandatory levy for everyone that does not qualify as tax deductible.

At the time of the January fee statement, you will also be provided with information on suggested options for a tax-deductible donation per family. You can of course donate more or less than the suggested amount.  All we ask is that you consider contributing what you can based on your own circumstances, so we can continue to upgrade and maintain our facilities. Your support will provide benefits for your child now and other children into the future, just as we now enjoy the facilities built by the generosity of past families.
