When accepting a place at a residential college, parents agree to pay the $15,157. This fee covers accommodation, meals, facilities, and pastoral care for each student. In 2025, this fee will be $15,536.

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.

Students accepted into the WA Department of Education's Gifted and Talented Program may also be eligible to apply for the Gifted and Talented Boarding Away from Home Allowance. They will only be eligible if they do not qualify for the Australian Government Assistance for Isolated Children Scheme or a State Government Boarding Away from Home allowance. In 2024, the Gifted and Talented Boarding Allowance is valued at up to $1,389 a year.
