2023 Fees and Charges


Tuition and Boarding Fees

Fees include normal sport, physical education, laboratory, library and excursions up to Year 12 and compulsory camps up to and including Year 9.

For boarding students, accommodation, meals, laundry, ordinary mending and routine nursing attendance is included.

The OSC Membership Fee can be refunded if your son does not commence at the School.

Scotch College provides a 10% discount on the Confirmation Fee for boys entering Pre-Kindergarten, providing a commitment to continue at the College is made. If no commitment is made, one third of the Endowment Fee ($2,550) must be paid. For a boy continuing onto Pre-Primary the pre-paid fee is then deducted from the full Confirmation Fee.
