Tuition

The tuition fees are all inclusive – they include the compulsory activities such as:  subject costs (e.g. home economics, woodwork); interschool sporting arrangements; camps; excursions and textbooks.

Where students commence during an invoicing month, it is expected that the parents will pay the full fees for that month. For example, Term 3 commences around the middle of July, and parents of new students will be invoiced the full amount for the month of July.

Toowoomba Christian College require fees to be paid on time.  This is critical in assisting the College to maintain the excellent and comprehensive education we provide to your children.

Students departing at the end of the school year

The school expects notice in writing before the end of Term 3 if a student is leaving at the end of the school year.
