High School in Australia Price List

2020 and 2021

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.

The private schools in Australia do not publish their prices for the coming year until late summer or autumn. Therefore, in calculating future year fees, you should allow for an increase of about 2% higher than the previous year. The prices listed here refer to year 11 and 12. Years 10 and below are possibly cheaper. Otherwise the same conditions apply.

Prices for one term or three terms are provided on request, noting that for some private schools, the minimum stay is two terms.
