Enrolling in Primary or Secondary

The Catholic Learning Community of St John XXIII enrols students from Kindergarten to Year 12. We value a clear focus on excellent, student centred learning and teaching with a strong sense of partnership between home and school.

Catholic schools have a strong religious dimension and families of other faiths who wish to enrol in Catholic schools are expected to participate in all religious activities at the College.

Before completing an enrolment application families should first read the enrolment instructions on how to enrol your child/ren. You will then need to complete the enrolment forms. They consist of several sections which allows the College to best identify your child’s requirements and needs.

Once the Enrolment Application has been submitted, our Enrolment Officer will contact you to schedule an interview.
