Enrolment Process:

Step One: Application

An online application form must be completed and submitted.

• Application is to be made online.

• The required non-refundable Enrolment Fee must be paid at the time the Application for Enrolment Form is submitted. ($500 (inclusive of GST) for the first son, $100 for the second son and $50 for each subsequent son)

• A copy of your son’s birth certificate, proof of birth notice, or passport must be provided with the Application for Enrolment Form.

• Both parents/carers (where applicable) must sign and agree to the Conditions of Entry.

An application is a prerequisite for admission but not a guarantee of admission.

Waiting lists apply at all entry points.

Step Two: Enrolment Interview

An interview will be conducted with the Registrar and/or senior staff (Director and Assistant Director of Junior School). For Prep and Year 5, enrolment interviews are conducted one year before commencement. Year 7 interviews take place two years prior.

This provides an informal opportunity for families to learn more about St Kevin's College and ask questions. The interview will cover various topics, including medical, learning or pastoral needs, and is a chance for us to get to know you and your son.

Prior to the interview, the Registrar will request:

• Proof of a student’s Catholic Baptism and evidence of any other sacraments received;

• Naplan results (where applicable);

• the two most recent academic reports;

• any other formal testing results or materials which the family or College believes must be examined prior to considering a boy for a position;

• the College questionnaire provided as part of the enrolment process.

At the interview, the Registrar may request further assessment or information from past assessments.

Step Three: Formal Offer

Following the interview, a formal offer of a place may be made.

The College takes a range of criteria into account when making offers of places to students because we consider it important to have an appropriately balanced College community. Information about our criteria is available in the Enrolment Policy.

If your son is not initially offered a place, we will let you know and, they will either be placed on a shortlist, deferred to another point of entry or cancelled as per your request. As places become available, we offer them to children on the shortlist initially, subject to our admissions criteria.

Step Four: Acceptance

To accept the place, a non-refundable capital levy payment of $2,500 (amount may vary depending on siblings and year commencing) is required, along with the completed paperwork by the due date.

By signing the Acceptance of Position form, families acknowledge they have read and understood all College expectations, procedures and declare that the information they have provided is true and correct.

Step Five: Transition

Details regarding your son's orientation and transition will be communicated to your family during October of the year prior. We may contact families immediately prior to commencement to confirm their intention to start.

As a guide, the year before your son's commencement, students with confirmed places for Year 5 and Year 7, will undergo academic testing. We use the results of this test to provide an initial academic profile and to formulate the best learning outcomes for your son.

Step Six: Commencement

We seek to ensure all students have a successful and positive transition to St Kevin's College. The first few days of the new school year is set aside as orientation. These days are designed to promote the social connection between the boys, outline general expectations of the College and orientate new students to the campuses. The boys will participate in several activities, including a tour of the campus.
