The Process

The Process

Step 1

Explore our College

Discover all our College has to offer by browsing our website, or visiting our Facebook Page and YouTube Channel for more information. Limited Campus Tours are available to book online. If you have any questions, please call 9851 5101 or submit an online enquiry, and our Enrolments team will be happy to assist.

Step 2

Enrolment Criteria

In enrolling students, we seek to offer a place to those who are most likely to benefit from and contribute to the life of the College. Offers of enrolment are made taking into account:

  • The student’s willingness to explore the teachings of the Bible and study about Jesus Christ
  • School reports, test results, learning needs and aptitude
  • Skills and involvement in non-academic pursuits
  • Sibling currently attending or previously attended the College
  • Place of residence
  • Date of application

No single criteria is a determining factor. As parents are free to choose the school they believe is the best for their child, so the College will select families most likely to be well served by the education it is offering. Decisions taken are the responsibility of the Principal and the Enrolments team and no discussion of these decisions will be entered into.

Step 3

Submit an Application

Submit an application as soon as possible for your child to be included on the waiting list. All supporting documents and the $100 application fee is required at this time. The application will be acknowledged by email and the application fee will be receipted.

Due to significant enrolment demand across multiple grades for future years, families are advised to confirm availability prior to lodging an application for 2025 and beyond.

At this stage Year 7, 2025 is fully enrolled with a waiting list, however if you have any queries about this year level, please complete an Enquiry Form before submitting an application, and our enrolments team will be in contact. Applications for Year 7, 2025 closed in February 2024.Please note this date is subject to change.

If you are an Adventist family and require a place in 2024 and 2025, please phone the College and speak to the Registrar.

Step 4

Waiting list

Your child’s application will remain on the waiting list and you will be contacted by our Enrolments Team should a vacancy occur. Please contact the College if any of your details change during this time.

Step 5

Contact and Consultation

To find out if you are still interested in a place we will contact you to ask you to meet with our Principal. We will then consult with current and/or previous schools, teachers and referees, as applicable. Assessment may be conducted during this time. After your interview, your application will be reviewed and you will be contacted via email if your application has been successful.

Step 6

Placement Offer

Placement offers from the Principal will be emailed to successful applicants. Positions must be confirmed by parents with the return of the Letter of Offer and payment of the non-refundable Enrolment Bond of $600. This must be returned within two weeks.

If parent/carer(s) wish to defer the entry of a student to a different calendar year to the initial request,
the College will advise whether it is able to agree to this. If it is unable to agree, the Student will be
placed on a waiting list for the requested year but enrolment cannot be guaranteed.
