Funding for Geelong Lutheran College is derived from three main sources:
- the Commonwealth Government
- the State Government
- Tuition Fees
The funding given to Independent schools is considerably less than that given to State schools – therefore the charging of tuition fees is necessary.
Geelong Lutheran College Council aims to keep tuition fees to a minimum without sacrificing quality, and to make education at our College accessible to anyone who desires it. This is only possible if all families meet their commitment. However, Christian love and understanding is always used in cases where difficult circumstances arise and alternative arrangements for payment can be considered.
A non-refundable application fee of $50 per student is payable on the lodgement of an enrolment form to cover administration costs and is not deductible from future tuition fees. It is not refundable, and does not guarantee a position at the College.
An enrolment deposit of $200 will be required for any student when accepting a position offered at the College. This amount is non-refundable should the position not be taken up. This fee will be deducted from the first term tuition fee account for students attending the College.
A voluntary building fund contribution of $50 per student per term is fully tax-deductible.
