Parental Contributions and Sliding Scale

ALFA Steiner Secondary believes that our education should be accessible to all families who want or need it regardless of income level.
Currently we receive no external funding from state authorities or external bodies - our programmes are funded entirely by parental contribution.

Parental Contributions 2022/2023

Full contribution €5,500      (2 children, €8,000)

Means Tested Benefit Concession      (MTB)      €3,500      (2 children, €4,500)
This concession is available to families who provide evidence of being in receipt of means tested benefits. Usually this is a currently valid medical card.

Mid-Point Concession   (MP)       €4,500       (2 children, €6,500)
This concession is available to families who do not qualify for the means-tested rate, but for whom the full contribution creates significant strain. To receive this concession, families need to apply in writing to the school, setting out the circumstances.

Volunteers Concession   (VC)     €2,500      (2 children, €3,500)
This concession is available for up to 3 families in receipt of means tested benefits for whom the MTB Concession creates significant strain. These families take on responsibility for fundraising activities and voluntary work contributions throughout the year. Families contact the school if they wish to be considered for this concession.
