Fee Information

The document below outlines tuition fees and provides a clear explanation of family concessions, our payment terms, late payment of fees, and so on.

When the fees for each year are confirmed by the College Board, all families are advised in writing. This generally happens each year in mid-to-late November.

Edstart Fee Payment and Extension

We are working with Edstart to help families manage school fee payments. Parents are able to choose a plan that fits around your budge – you can even lower your annual school fee spend.

Please note, Edstart is a third party and is separate from Carey. We will not have access to any information that you provide to Edstart and is a private arrangement between the parents and Edstart.

Direct Debits

In the interests of better efficiency in the Accounts Office, direct debit is the only form of paying tuition fees. Direct debits include annual, semester, term, monthly, and fortnightly payments. If you require weekly payments, please contact the Accounts Office. As well as direct debits from bank accounts, we also offer direct debits from a credit card. As per our Direct Debit Instructions below, please be mindful that there is a 0.8% surcharge to use a credit card.

Direct Debit Forms will be ongoing until the last student from your family leaves the College. If you need to complete or update your direct debit details, please complete a Direct Debit Form and return to the Accounts Office at least 3 business days prior to your next scheduled direct debit.

Parents in Partnership

At Carey, we recognise that parents play the most significant part in their child’s journey to lifelong learning. Values and attitudes that parents hold towards school and learning will strongly influence the values and attitudes that their children hold, and we encourage and welcome parent involvement, providing many ways that you can be involved.

Primary School Parent Involvement

Parents are invited to attend the Parents in Partnership (PIP) meetings, which are advertised on the Primary Calendar. For further active involvement, please see your child’s classroom teacher if you are available to assist in any of these areas:

  • Rostered help in the classroom.
  • Art Room.
  • Library.
  • Assisting with Literacy Support.
  • Special Events and Carnivals.
  • Excursions and Camps.
  • Fundraising Activities.

Secondary School Parent Involvement

Please see Administration if you are able to assist with Fundraising Activities or Hospitality and Events.


The OSHC Program at Carey Forrestdale is organised by Jump Carey Early Development. The Program aims to extend and enrich the wellbeing and development of school-aged children. Before school and after-school programs are available during the school term for students in Primary School. Vacation Care is also available for students at the Harrisdale Campus.
