Fees and Financial Assistance

At North West Christian School our fees have no hidden extras. On average, you will pay between $1500 and $2500 per Year.  Family discounts are available for those that have more than one child attending the school.  We also offer financial assistances programs if eligible to help with the fees.

Scholarships and Sponsorship

This is done through an application and interview process. There are limited numbers for each sponsorship and scholarship. These financial assistant schemes cover part or full-tuition fees.  To find out more, contact the school and make an appointment with our school principal.

Overdue Fee Protocol:

  1. If you are having difficulties with paying your fees, please contact us to negotiate a new payment plan.
  2. If the Principal has not been contacted, then a letter will be sent out reminding you about the need to contact us to discuss payment options.
  3. The Tasmanian Adventist Schools system has employed external Accounts personnel, who may make contact with you if the Fee Account payments have for some reason ceased or you become behind in payments.
  4. Further letters and phone calls will be sent as reminders, before any account may be delivered to the Debt Collectors.
  5. It is important to help us with our budget to know when fees will be coming in and it is important for you not to get behind with your fees because it can become very difficult to catch up.  Remember: contact us first when you are having difficulties with paying your fees.
