Charges / Fee

Christchurch Adventist School (CAS) is committed to making Christian education affordable to as many students as possible. To assist families in meeting the cost of education, a direct debit system is available which allows payments to be spread equally across the school year. Please note that the fees listed are for domestic students only. Information on international student fees is available from the School Office.

Payment Options

Fee instalments can be made as follows:

  • Option A: Fees are paid up-front for the year
  • Option B: Fees are paid up-front for the term
  • Option C: You may arrange weekly, fortnightly, or monthly direct debit payments (requires consultation with Principal)

It is important that you notify the School Office at the beginning of the year, before the first due date, of the payment option you intend to use. Payment may be made by cash, cheque and direct debit. Variation from a pre-arranged payment plan would need to be arranged with the Principal.

Financial Assistance

Recognising that some families experience short term financial hardship, CAS has limited funding available to assist families experiencing genuine difficulties. We are dedicated to ensuring that financial hardship is not the primary reason for students being unable to attend or remain at our school. In cases of genuine extreme hardship, assistance in meeting fees may be available. Families wishing to make application for student aid should arrange an interview with the Principal.
