Step 2 – Interview
All offers of places in the College will be made subject to consideration of the information contained in the application for enrolment form and an interview with a member of the College leadership team.
Interviews will take place in Term 1 of your daughter’s Year 4.
Parents will be contacted in writing to arrange a suitable interview time.
Step 3 – Offers of placement
Offers of placement will be made in writing early in Term 1 of your daughter’s Year 4, with the acceptance date being 1 April.
On confirmation of enrolment, a holding deposit of $750 is payable to the College. This deposit will not be refunded if you subsequently cancel the enrolment of your daughter prior to her commencement at the College.
The holding deposit will be retained by the College and will be refunded when all fees and charges have been paid upon the completion of Year 12 or earlier if the student leaves the College.
Step 4 – Parent information evening
A specific parent information evening is held in Term 4 of your daughter’s Year 6 prior to their commencement year. On the evening, parents will receive a package with all the information required to start school, including uniforms and the procedures for student orientation day and the new school year.
Step 5 – Student Orientation Day
We hold two student orientation days in Term 4 of your daughter’s Year 6.
The first day is an opportunity for your daughter, with a small group of peers, to experience a college day as a potential Year 7 student. This day is not compulsory, but recommended.
Our second day provides a time for your daughter to be introduced to her Year 12 ‘Big Sister’, to experience a day as a Year 7 student at Mount Alvernia College and meet Home Room teachers, as well as become familiar with the layout and facilities of the College.
Step 6 – Waiting list
Applications for enrolment lodged after the application close date will be placed on our waiting list in order of date of receipt, regardless of enrolment category.
Applicants on the waiting list are interviewed as places become available. In the event that this occurs parents will be contacted in writing to arrange a suitable interview time.
Applications for other entry points.
Applications for enrolment can be lodged at any time for entry to other than Year 7.
Enrolment is subject to an interview with the Principal and places being available.
