Building on Our Mission and Our Vision was the development of our Educational Strategic Plan incorporating the adoption of exciting, new programs and a restructure of the Campuses in order to best meet future educational challenges and the needs of our students.
In 2018, the College received approximately 68% of its total income from Government Grants with the remainder of the income derived from school fees (29%) and miscellaneous income sources (3%).
Again, there is ongoing uncertainty surrounding future Government Grants and the College has geared its fee structure in continued preparation to put the College in a stronger position with Government funding models post 2018 incorporating the “capacity to pay” model.
In 2018 Padua College continued to maintain a balance between growing its Campuses and continuously improving the quality of existing services offered to the Padua College community.
We look forward to the completion of the Whyte Senior Learning Centre in 2019 as well as specialist classroom upgrades throughout the College.
The 2019 School Fees have been developed in support of the Educational Strategic Plan and in accordance with Board Directives to enable the provision of quality, affordable Catholic Education to our students. On this basis, school fees have been set with a 6% increase.

Padua College encourages the Exchange Student Program.
Overseas students who elect to attend the College under this scheme will be expected to pay the Composite Fee for the period concerned in addition to supplying their own uniform, textbooks and electronic devices. Any extra- curricular activities and transport charges will also be the responsibility of the host family.
It is expected that the upfront payment of the pro-rata Composite Fee is settled upon enrolment of any exchange student.
Students from the College embarking on an Exchange Program will not be charged full fees for the period of exchange. Their place at the College will be guaranteed on their return, conditional on the period of exchange not exceeding twelve months.
Fee Relief is available to assist families who are experiencing financial hardship and have a current Health Care Card or Pension Card. Consideration will only be given to those completing an Application for Concessional Fees form along with required documentary evidence. This form is required to be completed every year even if you were a prior recipient of relief.
Forms are available from the accounts department at the beginning of the year and must be submitted by Friday 1st February 2019.
Those families with outstanding fees from previous years may not be eligible for concession.
Refund Policy - Notice of Withdrawal
A full terms notice in writing must be given to the Principal when withdrawing your child/children from the College, subsequently one full term fees (i.e. One quarter of the annual tuition fee) may be charged.
Absence for Prolonged Periods of Time
