A reasonable fee structure is required for Catholic schools to operate effectively and provide high quality education . Catholic Education strives to keep fees as low as possible.

It is an expectation that all families will contribute toward the payment of school fees. Federal and State governments acknowledge the right of parents to choose the school which best suits their child's need for educational, religious, cultural or other reasons. However, in comparison with funds spent on government schools, government funds committed to non-government schools remain limited. Your contribution through school fees is essential.
There are three components included in the cost of educating your child at a Catholic school:
- Tuition Fees - these are set by the Rockhampton Diocesan Catholic Education Office and apply to every Catholic School in the Rockhampton Diocese.
- Diocesan Levies - these are levies set by the diocese to assist in funding capital and technology projects.
- School Based Levies - these are levies applied by the school to assist with the operational educational and running costs.
