First Round Offers

In April, two years prior to commencement (ie, when your daughter is in Year 5) first round offers of a place will be made.  Second round offers may take place in April, one year prior to commencement (when your daughter is in Year 6), only if there are places available.

Secure Your Daughter’s Enrolment

Once an offer of enrolment is made, you will be asked to confirm acceptance and pay a non-refundable Acceptance Fee of $1,000 to St Scholastica's College by the date specified.  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 our online Application for Enrolment Form. The application will be processed and automatically acknowledged.  The Enrolments Officer will contact you to discuss waitlist and availability.

 

Enrolment Interviews

Students applying for Years 8 – 11 will be required to attend an interview prior to any potential offer of a place at the College.

Interviews are not conducted for students applying for Year 7.

The 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 College, personal interests, medical issues, pastoral concerns and more.

Boarding Applications

Prospective boarding students will need to meet with the Head of Boarding or delegate.
