Worth investing in…
One of the most important investments we can make as parents/caregivers is in the education of our children.
Investigator College provides an excellent, full-service educational opportunity at a price that ensures access for a wide range of families.
There remains a significant challenge, however, to operate in an environment where fees need to be kept affordable,
yet ensure we remain at the forefront of educational opportunity.
Discounts and Financial Assistance
Early Payment Discount
An 8% discount is available if full payment is made by close of business on the first Friday of Term 1. The discount is calculated on the value of Tuition Fees less Sibling Discounts (if applicable) and all previous outstanding amounts must be paid. The Capital Development Levy and Stationery charge (R-4) are not subject to this discount and this discount does not apply to any fee remissions (e.g. Scholarship).
Investigator College celebrates the opportunity to assist students to become their best self. Accordingly, the College offers a range of Scholarships each year to ensure that circumstance does not inhibit promising students by restricting access to the innovative and well-resourced facilities available to students of Investigator College. Further information is available here.
Should you anticipate a problem with the payment of your fees, please contact the College to make an appointment with the Business Manager to discuss. All discussions with regards to the management of your fee account remain confidential.
Save for your child’s educational future
Investigator College offers current and future parents/caregivers of the College the ability to save for the education of their students. Accounts in credit receive an accumulated discount that, together with the principal, can be used to pay for educational needs as they arise.
The saving scheme is run through the family fee account. Any account that is in credit will receive an accumulated discount that is linked to the NAB 90-day term deposit interest rate. This growth may only be used for school-related costs and cannot be refunded.
Future parents/caregivers of the College can request that their fee account be set up to hold credit amounts by contacting the Finance Office.

The Enrolment Acceptance Fee will be credited to the tuition fee account once the student has commenced at Investigator College.

Where students from Year 9 to Year 12 avail themselves of courses and activities that fall outside the standard curriculum included in the Tuition Fees schedule (e.g. Specialist Subjects material expenses), an additional subject levy may be charged.
Of particular note is the Year 6 Cultural Camp to Canberra (approximately $900) and the Year 9 Camp to Melbourne (approximately $700). Families are encouraged to plan for these expenses. Other optional sporting and cultural opportunities will be advertised and costed throughout each year.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Program
