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 enrolment enquiries.

Step 1

Complete the Application for Waitlist, providing a copy of your child’s birth certificate and latest school report (if available), along with payment of the $150 Application Fee. An early application date is preferable in the enrolment process.

Step 2

Two years prior to entry, a pre-enrolment form (sent via email) is completed to progress your child’s application to the next stage of the enrolment process. At this time we ask families for current 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 a formal Offer of Enrolment may be made. To accept the offer, the form is completed and signed within two weeks of the date the offer is made, and accompanied by a payment of the non-refundable Enrolment Fee of $1,800 and an Advancement of School Fees of $1,200. A sample Letter of Offer can be viewed here.

Step 5

Welcome to St Michael’s Grammar School! Your child will take part in our orientation program to ensure a smooth transition to 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).
