The College is a learning community which provides a contemporary, holistic and liberating education that challenges, nurtures and inspires young men in Years 7-12 to be aspirational regarding their future. Students are encouraged to strive to achieve their personal best, developing the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to flourish in an ever-changing world.
If you are looking for this kind of education for your child, the next step is to complete and submit an online application for enrolment.
Although our major intake is students entering Year 7, we enrol students in all Year levels depending on the availability of places.
If an enrolment offer is made, families will be required to pay a $500 deposit to complete the acceptance. A $200 administrative fee will be deducted from the $500 ‘Acceptance of Offer’ deposit if the student is withdrawn prior to his confirmed commencement date. The $500 deposit is returned to families at the end of their schooling at the College pending any fees owing.
Principles of Enrolment
As an Edmund Rice School, we are guided by Catholic Social teaching, which states that, ‘each person possesses a basic dignity that comes from God, not from any human quality or accomplishment, not race, gender, age or economic status’. We aim to provide an education where the dignity of each young person is paramount.
As an Inclusive Community, St Edward’s College does not exclude students based on academic ability. We are accepting of students with various abilities and diverse learning backgrounds and gifts. We are committed to assisting the individual needs of each person, providing teaching and learning experiences that are authentic, relevant, rigorous and creative.
We are committed to providing a holistic education integrating faith with culture and learning, while instilling an appreciation of the need to strive for the greater good of all society.
