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

A 6% 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 are not subject to this discount and this discount does not apply to any fee remissions (e.g. Scholarship).

Scholarship Program

Investigator College celebrates the opportunity to assist students to become their best selves. 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.

Financial Assistance

Should you anticipate a problem with the payment of your fees in 2022, please contact the Finance Office to discuss available options. All discussions 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 children. Accounts in credit receive an accumulated discount that, together with the principal amount, can be used to pay for educational needs as they arise.
