Applications are accepted from students in Year 3 onwards. 


All applications need to include:

  • A copy of your daughter’s birth certificate.

  • A copy of your daughter's latest school report.

  • A copy of your daughter's NAPLAN report (we understand there were no NAPLAN tests in 2020).

  • A copy of any relevant educational and/or medical assessment reports.

  • Non-refundable application fee of $220.  Please click here to pay the fee.

Once received, your application will be acknowledged and processed.

We encourage families whose daughters are currently in Year 3 and interested in sending them to St Scholastica's College, to submit a Student Enrolment Form as soon as possible. All requests will be assessed and families will be contacted by the Registrar to discuss availability or waitlist options.

Secure Your Daughter’s Enrolment

Once an offer of enrolment is made, you will be asked to confirm acceptance by signing and returning an Acceptance of Offer form and Conditions of Entry (Parent Contract), together with a non-refundable Acceptance Fee of $1,000 to St Scholastica's College by the date specified.  The Acceptance Fee will be credited against your daughter’s Term 1 fees. If the offer is not accepted by the due date, it will lapse and the place will be offered to another applicant. 

Enrolments for Years 8 to 12

Enrolments are possible at any time but are contingent upon places being available.

If you wish your daughter to be considered for enrolment any time after the commencement of Year 7, please complete and submit an Application for Enrolment Form (on right). The application will be processed and acknowledged.


Enrolment Interviews

Your daughter’s enrolment interview provides an opportunity for the Principal or member of the Executive Staff to meet your family and to get to know your child. It is also an opportunity for you to learn about the College.

Interviews will cover topics such as learning strengths and difficulties, religious life of the School, personal interests, medical issues, pastoral concerns and more.

Students applying in Years 8 – 12 will be required to attend an interview prior to any potential offer of a place at the College.

Additional Interviews

Prospective boarding students will also need to attend a meeting with the Head of Boarding or delegate.
