We take great pleasure in welcoming new families into our school community.

Who can enrol?
Sydney Catholic schools are open to all Catholic families, as well as families from Orthodox churches, families from other Christian Churches, and those from other faith traditions or non-religious backgrounds who are prepared to support the ethos, values and liturgical and sacramental practices of the Catholic Church.

When to enrol
You can apply to enrol your child in a Sydney Catholic School at any time although the formal enrolment period commences in March. Secondary colleges accept applications two years prior to commencement.

The processes and decision of enrolment are determined by the individual school based on the context of the parish and school community and in accordance with Sydney Catholic Schools’ Enrolment Policy.
