Step 1:

Enrolment Forms are available from the College Office and here.

Completed forms should be returned to St Joseph’s College Office together with copies of the following documents:

Step 3:

Contact the College for an interview with the Principal.  If interstate a phone interview can be arranged.  A tour of the College can also be arranged at this time.

Note: After the commencement of the school year enrolment interviews take place on Wednesday’s.  If an offer of enrolment is made and accepted, the student is required to do  a Progressive Achievement Test on the following Friday and commence school on the Monday.


Step 4:

Students will be required to sit a PAT (Progressive Achievement Test).  At the beginning of the year all new students will be gathered together to complete the test.  Enrolments throughout the year will sit the test following their interview.

The Principal may contact Principals of previous schools of students seeking enrolment to discuss the circumstances, and to discuss any academic or behavioural matters.  The Principal has the authority to defer admission in order that enquiries of the previous school are carried out in the interests of the student.
Where the number of enrolments exceeds the available places, the priority for acceptance is as follows:

  1. siblings of presently enrolled children
  2. Catholic children or children from Catholic families
  3. children from families with a Religious affiliation
  4. other applicants
