Enrolling at our school


​​​​​​Enrolment into Year 7 for 2023


Enrolment documents for 2023 will become available from 9.00am on Monday, 16 May via the school website.

Expressions of Interest (EOIs) applications can be lodged in person on Wednesday, 18 May at our Open Day. Please be advised that we are only accepting applications from those who have booked into a Learning @ AC presentation (XPAC). School staff will be at the door to confirm your booking and receive your applications as you enter. While you are in the information session they will ensure that your application is complete and that we have all necessary accompanying documentation.

Please be reassured that the wait list will be compiled based on the time you accessed Trybooking to book into the session rather than whether you attend the first, second or third session. We encourage prospective parents to ensure that the application is completed carefully and any supporting documentation is gathered and provided at the time of lodging so as to avoid any potential processing delays.

We will consider emailed EOI applications from 9.00 am on Thursday, 19 May. Out-of-catchment applications received via email from this date will be added to the out of catchment wait list following those who presented their documentation in person at Open Day.

Out-of-catchment EOIs will only be received in person at Open Day when the prospective family has booked into a Learning @ AC presentation.

For students applying to one of the Excellence Programs, the EOI to the school may be submitted first and the Excellence application can be submitted later by the due date on the form, once completed by a Nominator.

Process after submitting the EOI

The EOI and supporting documents will be reviewed by the EMP committee and successful applicants will be sent a successful enrolment letter, enrolment application form and other documents required for enrolment. Parents will also be supplied with instructions on how to book an interview with a member of the school Leadership Team. These interviews are scheduled across a number of weeks and are undertaken in groups of enrolling students and their parents and take approximately 45 minutes. It is important that both the parent / carer and student have read the Curriculum and Enrolment Handbook before attending this interview as all three parties (Student, Parent and School Representative) will be signing an enrolment agreement at the conclusion of the interview. Once signed, the enrolment is complete.
