Our Enrolments Process
Step 1: Enquire
We welcome and consider all enrolment enquiries for Kindergarten through to Year 12 at Carey Baptist College. The growing Forrestdale Campus currently offers Kindergarten to Year 6, with the Secondary School launching in 2019. Commencing with Year 7 next year, the campus will continue to grow each year to eventually offer Kindergarten to Year 12.
Our Enrolments Officer would love the opportunity to meet with you in person to provide you with a College Information Pack and information on how you can apply to join the waitlist.
Families are strongly encouraged to attend one of our tour events throughout the year. If you are unable to attend one of these events, please enquire with our Enrolments Officer about future dates.
Step 2: Apply
Complete secure Online Registration Form. A $50 non-refundable Application Fee is payable per family. You will receive an automatic reply from the College confirming receipt of your application.
Step 3: Interview
Once a position becomes available for an interview, our Enrolments Officer will contact you to request further documentation. We contact families based on their original date of application with siblings of existing students having priority.
For Kindergarten intake, we start contacting families 18 months prior to the year in which the student will commence Kindergarten. Interviews take place when the student has turned 3 years old.
For Year 7 intake, we start contacting families when the student is in Year 5.
If you have not yet heard from us for an interview, this generally means that we are not able to offer an interview at this point in time. We do welcome families to enquire with us from time to time to see how they are progressing on the waitlist.
Step 4: Offer
Following a successful interview with the Principal, an Offer of Placement is made. Families have the timeframe advised within the letter of offer to accept the placement. Placement at Carey Baptist College is confirmed once all completed enrolments forms and a non-refundable confirmation fee has been returned to the College.
The amount of the Confirmation Fee is $500 for the first child and $250 for the second child attending concurrently. There is no Confirmation Fee payable for third and subsequent children attending the College. The Confirmation Fee is not offset against your tuition account.
