Applications for entry to Fintona, for the Early Learning Centre (comprising 3 year old and 4 year old Kindergarten) to Year 12, must be made on the School's official Application for Admission Form. An application is a pre-requisite for enrolment but does not guarantee a place. A non-refundable Application Fee of $150 (inclusive of GST) is payable before placement on the waiting list.
A non-refundable enrolment fee per family is payable upon acceptance of a formal letter of offer.
The fee is $1,000 for entry into the Early Learning Centre (ELC) to Year 12.
Forward Fee Deposit
In addition to the application and enrolment fees, a forward fee deposit is required to secure a place at Fintona. When the student commences as scheduled, this deposit is credited against the first tuition fee account. The deposit is non-refundable if the designated place is not taken up by the student, but may be carried forward, on one occasion only, if the student’s commencement date is rescheduled at least two years after the original commencement date. Enrolment at this point is subject to availability at that time.
The forward fee deposit is half a term’s fees for entry into the ELC to Year 12.
Due to the high demand for places in the ELC and Junior School, in addition to the initial forward fee deposit required for entry into the 3 year old program (due in May of the year prior to commencement), additional forward fee deposits are required the following year if the student wishes to progress into the 4 year old program (half a term's fees) and Prep (half a term’s fees).
Whilst every effort is made to accommodate your first preference of ELC program, due to limited places this may not always be possible, but an alternative will be offered.
