School Card - South Australia

For families finding it difficult to make ends meet, the South Australian School Card scheme offers financial assistance for students attending government schools.

If your school fees are less than the School Card subsidy, the scheme can also help with other educational expenses such as uniform, camp and excursion costs.

Families with children aged four years and over who attend school full-time are eligible to apply using the application form on this page.

We encourage you to visit the Government of South Australia website offering more information about School Card Eligibility and Process. Applications can be completed online using the link provided.  Hard copies of forms can also be downloaded using the link.

Please Note : A new application must be completed at the start of every year.
