Applying and fees
Applying for a place is an easy process and we are more than happy to help.

If your child has been offered a place in a Gifted and Talented program, you can apply for a residential place at City Beach Residential College.

Submit your completed application, along with the $50 application fee. You can pay in person, over the phone, by email or bank transfer. For payment details, refer to the information on how to pay.
We will assess your application once we receive it. Our college manager may request a meeting with you and your child. We may ask for additional information.
We will inform you of the outcome of your application as soon as possible.
Accept the offer of a place
If we offer your child a place, we will invite you to enter into a boarding agreement. To find out what is included in the agreement, refer to our sample boarding agreement.
To accept the offer, return the signed boarding agreement to us along with any extra documents and the $300 bond. You can pay in person, over the phone, by mail or via bank transfer. For payment details, refer to the information on how to pay.
When accepting a place at a residential college, parents agree to pay the $14,823. This fee covers accommodation, meals, facilities, and pastoral care for each student. In 2024, this fee will be $15,157 and $15,536 in 2025.
In addition to the boarding fee, amounts are required to cover individual services which may be provided for students. Individual services may include, but are not limited to, extras such as uniforms, tutoring, counselling, transport, medical services, medical supplies, camps and outings.
Parents may be eligible for allowances or subsidies which can reduce costs. To find out about your eligibility for these allowances and subsidies and to access fee details, refer to the Residential college costs factsheet.
In 2024, eligible families in regional and remote areas may be able to access support for boarding costs from the Commonwealth Regional Scholarship Program. Applications close on Sunday 26 November 2023. Please direct all enquiries about this scholarship program to email@example.com.
