How to enrol

St Mark’s College recognises the responsibility and privilege of your child’s enrolment. Your child will be welcomed with care and invited to engage in a wonderful opportunity for growth.

We encourage families to submit their enrolment application at least 12 months prior to your child starting at St Mark’s College. 2020 applications (including mid-year) are to be lodged by 5 April 2019. Applications may be accepted during the year given special circumstances.

There are two intake cycles for enrolment:

  • Term 1 Enrolments - Reception to Year 12
  • Term 3 or Mid-Year Enrolments - Reception

The enrolment process and interviews are held in Term 2 for students starting the following year.  Please do not hesitate to contact the College if you wish to submit your application outside these timelines.

In order to apply for enrolment at St Mark’s College, please follow our enrolment process:

As parents, you know your child best. Our new intake gives families a choice about when it is best for their child to start school. St Mark’s College offers an additional enrolment intake for Reception students, giving families the flexibility to determine the best time for their child to start school. The ‘Mid-Year Intake’ will allow children turning five between 1 May and 31 October to begin school in third term. These students will complete six terms of Reception. This intake, is in addition to the regular intake at the beginning of the year (where students complete a full year in Reception). Families will be able to decide whether their child is ready to begin mid-year when they turn five, or wait to enrol for the beginning of the following year.

In addition to the above information please view the following if you are considering enrolling in the Salesian Boarding House:

College Fees are essential to the overall success of the educational program of the St Mark’s College.

If you are new to paying school fees, it can seem a daunting prospect, but when you break down the payments to a more regular basis, it is easier to see how payments are manageable. For example, did you know that the full fee for a primary school child equates to just $78 per week? And, if you qualify for School Card, a substantial discount (50%) on the Tuition Fee is offered, reducing the weekly fee to just $43 per week.

Our College Fees are designed with families in mind, offering significant discounts for those with three or more children.

Upon enrolment, every family enters into an agreement with the College to meet their commitment regarding the payment of school fees. The Fee Schedule and Policy for 2019 includes information on fees, inclusions and a full breakdown of the fees structure.

For any enquiries about fees or payments, please contact the Administration on (08) 8633 8800.
