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, 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;

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.
