Parents can opt to pay their Tuition Fees within 30 days of them being charged and receive a 7% Early-Payment Discount. This is the preferred option for the College and if not taken up then parents have two (2) more options available to them.
Direct Debit Payments
All fees, including Option Payments, Uniform Charges and Tuition Fees can be bundled up and paid via a Direct Debit arrangement. The college will debit your bank account on a regular basis, as chosen by you, and credit it against your account.
Agreed Payment Plan
The final method available is via an Agreed Payment Plan (APP). Parents are encouraged to sign a declaration stating how their accounts will be paid and this will be monitored by our Credit Officer. This is a helpful alternative for those wanting to Direct Credit our bank account or pay by cash, cheque or Credit Card.
Cornerstone offers some very generous rebates for families who find themselves in financial difficult. Parents are encouraged to complete an application form at the commencement of each year or when their child starts with the college. To obtain an application form, please request one from Reception.
REGISTRATION FEES AND BOND
Families new to the college will be charged a $30 per student non-refundable registration fee to cover any administration costs. Each family is also expected to pay a refundable bond of $350 for the first child and then $150 for each subsequent child before any child commences. This bond shall be returned to the family once the last child leaves the college providing all encumbered debts have been cleared.
FAMILY CAPITAL LEVY
2012 saw the introduction of a Capital Levy for each family. This levy goes towards much needed playground and grounds works throughout the college and offers students a variety of playground options. The levy for 2013 will be $215 per family.
