MELBOURNE ARCHDIOCESE CATHOLIC SCHOOLS (MACS) SCHOOL FEES CONCESSION PROGRAM
Concessional school fees are available to any family that meets the below eligibility criteria:
- of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander heritage
- holding an HCC and eligible for CSEF
- experiencing severe financial hardship
- holding a DVA Gold Card
- identified as refugees and holding an ImmiCard is strongly encouraged to apply for concessional school fees
Only Health Care Cards that are eligible for the CSEF are eligible for the School Fees Concession Program.
The card must be issued in the name of the fee payer and list the students for whom the concession is to be applied.
The expiry date of the card must be after 1 January of the year for which the concession is to be applied. If an eligible concession card expires after the start of the year, the concessional fee rate will still be applied for the entire year. If a family becomes eligible during the course of the school year, then a pro‐rata concession will be granted.
Level of Concession
This concessional fee is fixed annually by Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools (MACS). Approved applicants will be charged only the annual concessional fee, which will cover all standard school fees and levies.
If the applicant has become eligible under one of the eligibility criteria throughout the year, a pro-rata concession will be granted.
In this instance, standard school fees and levies will be incurred for the portion of the year whereby the applicant was not eligible. To be eligible for the concession, the family must agree to either a direct debit or Centrepay deduction arrangement.
School Fees Concession Program Charges
The Concession Program Charge includes the combined cost for both the Family Fee and Program Levy.
The Concession Program Charges for eligible families are:
1 child: $780 per family ($15 per week or $195 per term)
2 children: $1,196 per family ($23 per week or $299 per term)
3 or more children: $1,560 per family ($30 per week or $390 per term)
- The concessional fee does not cover the cost of the Camp Levy.
- The Camp Levy ($320) must be paid in addition to the Concessional Fee for children in Years 5 and 6.
