Life With Us

Fees Structure

Families with more than one student enrolled at our school at one time, pay discounted fees for subsequent children


New Family Fee Deposit for 2025: $1,700

Our Fee Deposit is a one off payment for all new families, in addition to yearly school fees and is to be paid upon acceptance of enrolment or before the student starts school.

Kinder families do not pay a new family Fee Deposit until their child starts Prep.

Families will have their Fee Deposit refunded to their School Fee Account during their final year at the Launceston Christian School.


Association Scholarship

The Association of the Launceston Christian School kindly provide an annual Scholarship to assist a new or existing family who can demonstrate a practicing Christian faith and who might otherwise not be able to afford Christian education for their children.

The Scholarship provides $2,000 per year for two years towards the family’s tuition fees.

All families approved by the Department for Education, Children and Young People under their Student Assistance Scheme (STAS) will be granted a set reduction towards their family’s tuition fees by the Launceston Christian School’s Finance Committee. Families who were approved and received STAS in the previous year do not need to complete another STAS application. Families who are new enrolments, or those whose circumstances have changed, are eligible to apply for STAS if a parent holds a current Centrelink Health Care Card, Pension Concession Card or Department of Veterans’ Affairs Concession Card. Families may apply online on the Department’s web page at or may download an application form at the bottom of this page.

The Finance Committee has granted a discount on the 2024 School Fees for all approved STAS families at the following rates: 

Years 11 - 12: $1,000 per student 

Years 9 - 10: $630 per student 

Years 7 - 8: $530 per student 

Prep - Year 6: $455 per student 

Kinder: No discount is provided as federal funding is not received for this level of schooling.

Discounts are conditional upon a student’s enrolment for the full academic year.  Should your child’s enrolment be withdrawn during the school year, the STAS discount will not apply.

Unpaid Fees

Accounts not up to date at the end of each month, where no payment arrangement has been made, will be considered overdue. Families failing to meet their financial obligation to the school may incur an administration fee of $25 monthly.

Families Leaving LCS

A full term (10 weeks) tuition fee will apply for each term or part thereof attended.  Parents wishing to withdraw a student from the school are required to provide a minimum of one term (10 school weeks’) notice of intended withdrawal in writing to the Principal stating when the student will be withdrawn and where they are to be educated.  If a student’s enrolment is withdrawn without providing sufficient notice, a penalty of 5 weeks’ tuition fees may apply.  This penalty for insufficient notice will be due in addition to any tuition fees payable up to the end of the student’s final term.  When all students in a family are withdrawn, or the youngest child is graduating, the family’s Fee Deposit paid on enrolment will be credited to the School Fee account, and any remaining credit refunded.
