The Lumen Christi College Board in accordance with policies stated by the Catholic Education Office determines fees and charges for a given school year.
Fees are set taking into account the anticipated level of State & Commonwealth Government Grants and the cost of all items known to be an integral part of the education of Students.
Parent /Guardian Obligations
As a condition of the enrolment of a child at Lumen Christi College, parents/guardians undertake to pay all Fees and Charges. The enrolment application is a legally binding agreement which commits parents to the ongoing payment of fees due, in return for the provision of a place in the College. Where any unforseen changes or other circumstances may affect the ability to comply with payment obligations, parents/guardians are asked to contact the College at the earliest opportunity to discuss new payment arrangements with the Director of Finance & College Operations.
Each family is issued with a Statement of Account at the beginning of the year. A payment option form, outlining the methods and frequency of payments available, is circulated with the statement. Payment options must be agreed to by the date specified at the start of the school year. Enquiries regarding this can be made via the College Office on 9394 9300 or direct contact with the finance office:
. All fees are required to be paid by the beginning of Term 4.
Overdue or unpaid accounts:
Where necessary, action is taken to recover overdue payments. In the first instance a reminder letter is sent. Failure to act on such a letter results in the account being sent to a debt collection agency. Matters which have been referred to the collection agency will not be handled by the College. These will be treated separately from any further accounts with the College. Costs incurred in the collection of fees are the responsibility of the debtor. The College does not pay these fees.
Parents in genuine need of financial assistance due to hardship may be eligible to apply for a concession. Any such application is judged on its own merit and treated in confidence. An Application for Concession does not mean an automatic reduction in fees.
