ENROLMENTS
ENROLMENT PROCESS
Parade College prides itself on inclusiveness therefore we welcome students of all learning abilities, nationalities and faiths. If you would like a College prospectus or have a general enquiry simply complete our Enrolment Enquiry Form.

Due to demand, Parade College is now accepting expression of interests from as early as Year 3. All applications for enrolment will be waitlisted as places are offered mid-October of Year 5. Applications MUST accompany a non-refundable administration fee of $100.00. Parents may lodge a Parade Enrolment Application Form accompanying all applicable documentation, and payment authority to the College Enrolment Officer.

Year 7 2022 enrolments officially closed Friday October 9th 2020, however families are most welcome to submit a late application and be waitlisted. Noting family situations change, there will be those who decide not to proceed and as such boys on the current waiting list will of course take priority. As this waitlist is reviewed monthly it is only upon openings being identified that applicants are assessed for suitability and progression to offer status then made.

In order for Parade College to make fair and informed decisions relating to enrolments, it is important that families follow all steps in the enrolment process as set out below and meet the relevant deadlines. To assist us in the selection process we request that families undertake the following:

Attend a compulsory enrolment interview with the future student when they are in Year 5. An invitation to attend this meeting will be communicated to all families who have submitted an application for enrolment together with all documentation and a $100 application fee.

To accept an offer for placement, as outlined in the College Prospectus, a non-refundable Family Enrolment Contribution (FEC) of $500.00 is payable at the time of acceptance. This Family Enrolment Contribution of $500.00 is paid only once by each family, therefore if you have already made this payment for an older sibling, it is not required again with this new enrolment.

In making decisions and assessing suitable candidates for enrolment, the College will take into account the following set criteria:

  • Whether the student is a Catholic (any Rite) [requires presentation of Baptism Certificate]
  • Whether the student attends a Catholic Primary school within one of the Priority Parishes [as outlined by Catholic Education Melbourne] *
  • Whether the student has a family connection with the College by having:
    • A sibling who is a current or former student;
    • A father or grandfather who attended the College;
    • A mother whose brothers attended the College;
    • A parent who is a staff member.

We would like to enrol all families who seek a place at Parade College however this is simply not possible. To prevent disappointment please understand that waitlisted applicants can only be considered for placement when openings eventuate; this may as a result of change to a family situation or upon a senior student revising their study program. Openings for these future senior levels do become more apparent in the latter half of the current school year.

The College would like to enrol all families who seek a place at with Parade College however this is often not possible and all final decisions relation to enrolment, rests only with the Principal.

As this waitlist is frequently reviewed, in preparation, applicants may then be invited for an interview. Upon an opening being identified, candidates are then progressed to the Principal for consideration.
