Applications For Enrolment

You are invited to apply to enrol your son at PAC in our Early Learning Centre (2 – 4 year olds) and any Year level from Reception through to Year 12. We also welcome applications for enrolment of girls in our Early Learning Centre.

Step 1: Please complete the online Application for Enrolment at PAC.

To complete the online application, you will need to have ready a scanned copy of the birth certificate ready to upload and a credit card ready to pay the non-refundable application fee of AUD$100.

Step 2: Offers of a place

If your application is for commencement this year or next year, we will contact you shortly to discuss offering your child a place at PAC.

If the commencement year is more than two years from now, we will make an offer of a place on March 1, two years prior subject to meeting all the criteria below  (e.g. if applying for Grade 7 2026, we will contact you to make an offer on 1 March 2024.)

Criteria for PAC making an offer of a place for your child:

  • the Application for Enrolment has been completed
  • there is a place available in the requested year and grade level and, if required, that there’s a boarding place available
  • his subject choices are available
  • we are able to provide appropriate academic support if required
  • his residency status and level of English competency are appropriate.

If the number of students seeking enrolment in a year and grade level exceeds the number of places available, we prioritise according to factors such as date of application and family connections.

Step 3: Accepting the Offer

Once the Headmaster makes an offer of a place, parents then confirm their acceptance of the offer via the online Enrolment Acceptance Portal. To confirm their acceptance of the offer, parents or guardians:

  • digitally sign the terms and conditions
  • pay the non-refundable Enrolment Acceptance Fee of $1,250 – includes lifetime membership of the Prince Alfred College Old Scholars Association
