High School in Australia Price List

2019 and 2020

The table below gives Australian school enrolment prices by school type, state, and number of terms. All prices listed are in Australian Dollars (AUD). Currency Converter

The school requires payment when the placement offer is accepted (see Steps 5 and 6, Confirming and Enrolling). At the same time, Highschool Australia will issue an invoice for its services (This is a one-off lump-sum fee of 2000 AUD and is NOT included in the price list below).

Each Term usually corresponds to about three months, however, Term 4 is shorter due to end of year exams and the beginning of summer holidays. You can find the exact term dates on the page Australian School Calendar.
