Families are asked to submit an application for enrolment form together with a registration fee of $22.00 per student. This fee is non-refundable and does not guarantee a place at the College. Also required with the Application for Enrolment form is a photocopy of your child’s:

  • Birth Certificate
  • Baptism Certificate (where applicable)
  • Latest School report
  • Latest NAPLAN Report
  • Australian Citizenship Certificate or appropriate Visa information including sighting of current passport (for parents and children born outside Australia)

Enrolment Criteria

When considering making offers of enrolment, consideration is given to:

  • Children who are Catholic and active members of a parish community.
  • Children who are currently attending a Catholic parish primary school.
  • Children of alumni/old scholars.
  • Siblings of current or past students.
  • Children who are already enrolled in Catholic schools, in rural communities, interstate or overseas,
    and whose families are transferring.
  • Children from other schools seeking a Catholic education.
  • Date of application.

The priority considerations are not in hierarchical order. It is the responsibility of the Principal to enrol students at the College, who will consider the relevant circumstances when making decisions.

application meetings

Enrolment applications will be reviewed 18 months prior to the date for which you are seeking enrolment. Following this review, we will contact you if we are in the position to offer a meeting to discuss your child’s application. This meeting  provides us with an opportunity to discuss the application in person and to learn more about your child. Our senior members of staff who conduct these meetings are also well placed to answer any questions that you might have.

Offers of Enrolment

Once we have completed the meeting process and considered all the applications for a particular intake, successful applicants will receive a letter with an offer of enrolment.

Late Applications

Applications for enrolment received after the closing date are held and placed onto our waiting list, if there are no vacancies available at the time of submission. Although we try our best to offer enrolment to all families, especially those that meet the criteria, enrolment cannot be guaranteed.

Cabra Dominican College welcomes applications from all families seeking a Catholic education for their children.
