St Michael’s is an open-entry school. We welcome students and families from all backgrounds, faiths and traditions, and our student gender balance reflects our commitment to diversity and equality in education.
St Michael’s main entry points are 3-Year-Old Kindergarten, Preparatory, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 7. However, there are occasional vacancies in other years, and all enrolment enquiries are considered.

Prior to application, we recommend you attend an Open Morning to ensure that St Michael’s is the right school for your child. School tours are also available for imminent enrolments.

School Tours are also available for imminent enrolment enquiries.

How to Enrol

Step 1

As a first step in the enrolment process, you will be required to complete the  Application for Waitlist. In addition, we ask for a copy of your child’s birth certificate, their latest school report, and payment of the $150 Application Fee.

Step 2

Two years prior to entry, you will be required to submit a Pre-enrolment Form to progress your child’s application to the next stage of the process. At this time, we ask you to submit any supporting documentation.

Step 3

Prior to entry, prospective students and their parents may be invited to attend an enrolment interview. This interview is conducted by a senior member of staff and is a mutual conversation with your child to determine whether St Michael’s is the right fit for your family.

If it’s been a while since you visited St Michael’s, we recommend you attend an upcoming Open Morning or School Tour.

Step 4

Following the interview, you may receive a formal Offer of Enrolment. To accept the offer, you must complete and submit the relevant documents provided within two weeks, as well as payment of the Enrolment Fee ($1,800) and Advancement of School Fees ($1,200). A sample Letter of Offer can be viewed here.

Step 5

Your child will be welcomed to St Michael’s through our Orientation Program to ensure a smooth transition at the School.

Please note that the above processes may vary for international and Kindergarten students.

All students applying for a place at St Michael’s Grammar School who do not have English as their first language are required to sit an AEAS assessment test and must have a Test Score of 80 or above. This test can be completed either in Australia or in the applicant’s country of origin. Further information is available at AEAS (Australian Education Assessment Services).
