Fees & Charges

Funding for Geelong Lutheran College is derived from three main sources:

  • the Commonwealth Government
  • the State Government
  • Tuition Fees 

The funding provided to Independent schools is considerably less than that given to State schools – therefore the charging of tuition fees is necessary.

Geelong Lutheran College Board 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, where difficult circumstances arise alternative arrangements for payment will be considered.

An application fee of $100 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.

When a place is offered in Prep – Year 12, parents/guardians/caregivers are required to pay an Enrolment Deposit Fee of $500 for each newly enrolled child. This Enrolment Deposit Fee confirms the place for the child at the College. From 2025, $250 is credited to the fees when they commence. If a child fails to commence at the College, the fee is not refunded.

A voluntary building fund contribution of $50 per student per term is fully tax-deductible.
