Enrolment Information

Cabra Dominican College welcomes applications from all families seeking a Catholic education for their children.  Since our establishment in 1886, we have always enjoyed working in partnership with families from different backgrounds.  We believe that this provides Cabra with a diverse student population and a dynamic learning environment where each young person feels freer to be themselves as valued members of our community.

For any queries relating to enrolments; please contact the College Registrar, Mrs Lee-Anne Fosdike on (08) 8179 2429 or email registrar@cabra.catholic.edu.au

Enrolment Procedure

From 2019, our main intake point for enrolment will be in Year 7.  We will no longer have a Year 6 or Year 8 intake. It is recommended that families commence the process towards secondary school entry as early as possible. Enrolments are finalised 18 months prior to the student commencing in Year 7 with enrolment interviews conducted where possible when the student is in Year 5.  To enrol, please follow the steps below:

1/.  Request a prospectus and enrolment pack be mailed to you.

2/.  Join us for a Principal's Tour. We invite you to learn more about Cabra Dominican College and to tour our grounds, guided by our student leaders.  

3/.  Complete an Application for Enrolment form
