Boarding School Fees Australia

Boarding fees for Australian boarding schools vary depending on a number of factors including whether it is full board or weekday board (leaving the school on weekends), where the school is located, how prestigious the school is, and whether the boarder is a local or international student.

To explain how this might work we have set up three examples of first a relatively inexpensive Catholic boarding school in regional NSW, then a more expensive prestigious boarding school in Melbourne, and thirdly the same school in Melbourne but showing the boarding fees for overseas students.

Example 1 - Catholic Boarding School in Regional NSW Boarding and Tuition Fees

This example shows the boarding and tuition fees for a relatively inexpensive Catholic boarding school in regional NSW. The location of this school a long way from Sydney would be one of the reasons it might be cheaper than boarding schools in the major capital cities.

There are two different sets of boarding fees displayed for this example these are:
1 - Boarding fees for weekday boarding (Monday to Friday) with the student leaving the school for the weekend, and
2 - Boarding fees for full seven days a week boarding.


Year LevelAUD$ Boarding Fee per Year
(Monday - Friday only)
Years 7-11$10,044
Year 12$9,557

Year LevelAUD$ Boarding Fee per Year
(7 days per week)
Years 7-11$13,532
Year 12$12,905

Year LevelAUD$ Tuition Fee per Year

Year 7$5,352
Year 9$6,120
Year 10$6,528
Year 11$7,748
Year 12$6,630

Example 2 - Leading Melbourne Boarding School Boarding and Tuition Fees for Local Students

This example shows the boarding and tuition fees at one of the leading Melbourne boarding schools. These fees would be similar to the fees for most of the leading boarding schools in the larger capital cities.

Year LevelAUD$ Boarding Fee per Year
Years 7-12$20,400

Year LevelAUD$ Tuition Fee per Year
Prep-Year 6$20,560
Years 7-8$23,740
Year 9$25,140
Year 10 $26,940
Year 11 $25,140
Year 12 $25,140

These fees are generally payable per term or four times per year in most cases so that means 1/4 of the annual fee is paid four times each year.

Example 3 - Leading Melbourne Boarding School Boarding and Tuition Fees for International Students

This example shows the international student boarding and tuition fees at one of the leading Melbourne boarding schools. These fees would be similar to the fees for international students at most of the leading boarding schools in the larger capital cities.

Year LevelAUD$ Boarding Fee per Year
(International Students)
Years 7-12$30,240

Year LevelAUD$ Tuition Fee per Year
(International Students)
Years 7-8$37,240
Year 9$38,640
Year 10 $40,440
Year 11 $38,640
Year 12 $38,640

These fees are generally payable per term or four times per year in most cases so that means 1/4 of the annual fee is paid four times each year.
