The Alpine School (TAS) is one of the most affordable Steiner schools in the country.
While The Alpine School receives government funding, contributions from the school community in the form of fees and donations are vital to our success and enable us to create an inspired learning environment for our children.
While we aim to keep the fees as affordable as possible, we understand that fees can sometimes be difficult to manage. We don't want anyone to miss out because of fees, and so we're happy to discuss individual circumstances with parents/carers.
The Alpine School fees for 2019 are:
Child Per term Per year Discount
First 737.50 2,950.00 See below for options
Second 487.50 1,950.00 33%
Third 237.50 950.00 68%
Fourth and subsequent Free Free 100%
Note: Sibling discounts apply to siblings who are enrolled concurrently at TAS.
School fees will be inclusive of a $150 contribution to the school building fund, which is tax deductible.
These fees equate to only $14.75 per school day for the first child, $9.75 for the second, and $4.75 for the third.
In addition to sibling discounts, the following will be available in 2019:
Founding Families discount – 10% discount for families with a child enrolled and commencing at the beginning of Term 1, 2019, including all future siblings.
Pay on time discount* – 5% if the term’s fees are paid by the end of week 2 in each term.
Pay up front discount* – 10% if the full year’s fees are paid by the end of week 2 of Term 1.
Note: Discounts are conditional upon ‘on time’ payment. Where fees are not paid on time, then the discount will not apply and the full fee will be payable.
*either the pay on time or the pay up front discount will be applied – not both at the one time.
Up to 5 scholarships will be offered each year at the discretion of the Board. They will be valued at 50% off the standard fees. Other discounts will not apply.
