Fees Structure

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

New Family Fee Deposit for 2023: $1,500

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.

The application form must be completed in full and returned to our Registrar. The deadline for applications for the 2023 Scholarship is Friday 30th September 2022.
