There are a number of factors that impact the structure of our College fees, including the contributions expected from Federal and State Government. While all of these factors are not yet known due to our 2019 commencement, we anticipate the Secondary education charge to fall under $8000, with applicable sibling discounts to apply. Carey Baptist College takes every measure to maintain a manageable fee structure while ensuring the standard of excellent education.
