Application For Enrolment
Applications for enrolment to Prince Alfred College must be made on the official Application form and returned to the College with an application fee of $100 and a copy of your son's Birth Certificate. Your son’s name will then be placed on the waitlist in order of receipt. When the number of students seeking enrolment exceeds the number of places available, consideration will be given to priority status; such as sons of Old Scholars. Evidence of permanent residency must be provided by those not born in Australia, otherwise the enrolment will be processed as an International enrolment.
On 1st March in the year preceding commencements, dependent upon vacancies, an offer of place will be made to parents. All enrolments are subject to an interview with the respective Head of School who will then make a recommendation to the Headmaster, after which a formal offer of enrolment will be made.
Students who turn five years of age between 1st August and 28th February may commence Reception in February, providing places are available. Students who turn five years of age between 1st March and 31st July may commence Reception in July, providing places are available. Students who enter the Mid-Year Reception class will be required to spend 18 months in Reception.
Enrolments to the Earling Learning Centre must be completed separately to the College enrolment.
Please ensure you include a copy of your son's birth certificate when sending in an application form.
Please note, parents wishing to enrol their son at the ELC, and to the College must return both forms for consideration.
We are licensed to enrol 80 full fee paying overseas students (FFPOS) who are not Australian citizens or permanent residents of Australia. The process of enrolment of FFPOS is in keeping with immigration legislation and procedure.
International enrolments follow a similar process to that for domestic students. A copy of a passport along with results from a standard Language Testing Program such as AEAS ahould be included with the application. Documentation of previous school performance and reports should also accompany the application which will be assessed by the Headmaster.
