The College accepts applications for all year levels at any time, but parents/guardians are encouraged to submit an application as early as possible, as date of application may play a small part in our enrolment criteria.
Please note that whilst applications will still be accepted, Heathdale Christian College reserves the right not to proceed to the next stage of our enrolment process if there is an overwhelming response for a particular year level and entry
Our four year old kindergarten is part of our College education program. Successful enrolment into kindergarten will not require any further enrolment application to move into Prep.
Vacancies in Prep to Year 12 are subject to student movement at the end of each school year.
An Application for Enrolment Form must be completed for all new potential students and all relevant documentation provided. A non-refundable enrolment application fee per student is also payable on submission of the application.
An enrolment application will not be considered complete until ALL aspects of the application form have been provided to the Enrolment Office. The completed application is then placed into our enrolment system.
An appointment by invitation only is required with the relevant Head of School or representative, prior to any offers being made. Interested families will be invited to these appointments, dependent on the number of vacancies available for a particular year and year level.
The prospective student and his/her parents/guardians must attend this appointment. Where the prospective student is a sibling, only one parent/guardian is required to attend with their child.
Our appointment process seeks to ensure that prospective families and students agree with the principles and vision of Heathdale as a Christian school. It also provides the opportunity for a detailed explanation of College policies and allows parents/guardians the opportunity to ask any questions they may have.
Once ALL invited applicants for a particular year level have attended their enrolment appointment, places are then offered based on our enrolment factors.
If the College is unable to make an offer to a student, their application is placed back into our enrolment system. Their application will stay in this system until a place is found for them or until we are advised by the parents/guardians that they wish to withdraw the application.
Specific Year Level Enrolment Process
For families applying for four year old Kindergarten, Prep or Year 7, the enrolment process commences during Term 1 of the preceding entry year as stated on the application form.
All families who do not currently have children studying at Heathdale must attend an Enrolment Information Session.
It is the Heathdale’s intention to complete all enrolment appointments and make offers for Kindergarten, Prep and Year 7 by mid-July of the year preceding entry.
Enrolment appointments for places in Year 1 to Year 6 and Year 8 to Year 12 occur when vacancies become apparent. This may not be until Term 4 of the proceeding entry year as stated on the application form, as it is a requirement of Heathdale that families are required to give 10 weeks’ notice if they wish to withdraw their child(ren) from the College.
Enrolment appointments and offers may also be made during the course of the school year.
