Enrolling your child at Prince Alfred College
Thank you for considering Prince Alfred College for your child. We offer a well-rounded education for boys from Reception to Year 12, and welcome boys and girls from two years of age to our Early Learning Centre. Boarding is available from Years 7 to 12.
At PAC, we put your child’s success at the centre of all we do, supporting their learning through high-quality education, enriching co-curricular programs and deeply embedded pastoral care.
Our main entry points are ELC, Reception, Year 5 and Year 7, however applications for enrolment are invited at all year levels and places offered subject to availability.
For boys commencing in Reception, we also offer a mid-year intake, depending on the child's age and readiness. As a guide, we suggest:
- Term 1 for boys who turn five between 1 November and 30 April.
- Term 3 for boys who turn five between 1 May and 31 October.
Boys who start school in Term 3 will complete six terms of Reception.
