Scholarships

Pedare Christian College values excellence and diversity and seeks to recognise this through our scholarship program. The scholarship program celebrates and fosters excellence in academic achievement and music performance, and recognises students who take responsibility for, and are proactive in, the development of their own education.

Importantly, the program provides opportunities for students to attend Pedare who may not otherwise be able to do so.

A limited number of Academic, Music and All-Rounder scholarships are awarded each year and are reviewed at each reporting period. Scholarships provide partial remission of tuition fees at the discretion of the Principal.

For further information in relation to the College’s scholarship program, please contact the Community Relations Manager, Julie Holland at jholland@pedarecc.sa.edu.au or phone 8280 1700.
