As an accredited independent school, we receive funding from the State and Federal Governments which provides a level of financial support. To maintain a high standard of educational programs and to develop College facilities, tuition fees and levies are charged to parents.
Our cost structures are low which means fees are kept to a minimum, and operating expenditure is carefully monitored to ensure wise stewardship. Sibling discounts are offered to families who have two or more students enrolled.
We also offer temporary financial relief through our concession program to parents experiencing financial difficulty. Please ensure you meet with our Business Manager if this is a concern.
Coolum Beach Christian College operates a fleet of private buses for the convenience and safety of our community. Bus fares are divided into zones and trip or term prices are based on frequency of use as well as distance travelled to and from the campus. Discounts to the per student fee are offered to siblings in order to make this service more affordable. Fees are continually reviewed with our intention to make them affordable, falling close to comparative costs of using your own vehicle whilst saving people from the demand of time and commitment.
A place on the bus is subject to availability of seats, and full-time bus use students have priority to casual or part-time bookings.
Sibling discounts apply as stated above. Our bus operates a non-profit service aimed at keeping overheads to a minimum.
Refunds will not be given for days when children do not use the bus.
All of our students are required to comply with the College’s uniform regulation. This includes whilst travelling to and from the campus. Dress standards are necessary and will be expected in order to maintain a high level of representation of our College to the community.
The College uniforms are available 7 days per week and online via The School Locker.
Visit their website here.

CBCC families are welcome to advertise secondhand uniforms via a Facebook group for free. Search on Facebook for ‘CBCC Secondhand Uniform’ and you can request to be added to the group.
Donations of uniforms are always greatly appreciated. Secondhand uniforms are used to assist students in financial difficulty and students who on the odd occasion are not in the prescribed uniform. Donations may be handed into Business Services.
