Applications submitted by closing date

Applications for enrolment are to be submitted online prior the application closing date (two years prior to the requested entry year). 

Applicants shortlisted for interview

After the application closing date, applicants are shortlisted for enrolment interviews. Due to a high demand for places, not all applicants may be offered an enrolment interview. 

Enrolment interviews

Enrolment interviews are held in Term 2, following the application closing date. If a first-round interview cannot be offered, parents will be notified and their son’s application will remain on the waiting list.

Enrolment offers

Offers of enrolment are prioritised in accordance with our Enrolment Policy. Parents will be notified if an enrolment offer can be made when all first-round interviews are completed. An enrolment interview does not guarantee an offer of enrolment. Applicants who are not offered enrolment following an interview will remain on the waiting list.

Acceptance of offer

Enrolment offers are valid for 14 days. The enrolment offer must be signed and returned by the specified date and an enrolment fee of $1,800 ($1,200 siblings) is payable to secure the position. The enrolment fee is non-refundable and non-transferable.

Further enrolment interviews may be offered subject to availability. 

Preparing for the first day of school

A Parent Information Evening, Year 5 Orientation Day, Year 7 Orientation Day and Year 7 Placement Test are held in Terms 3 and 4 prior to commencement, to ensure families experience a smooth transition into College life. 

Year 5 Memorandum of Understanding between the College and the Broken Bay Diocese

It is important that all prospective families understand there is currently a Memorandum of Understanding in place between the College and the Diocese of Broken Bay that limits the Year 5 intake to 50 students from the local Catholic systemic primary schools. Additional places will be offered at the discretion of the Principal.

Enrolment Policy

Our Enrolment Policy outlines the key principles underpinning enrolment at St Augustine’s College – Sydney and the criteria for enrolment.

  • Category C - Baptised boys (other than Catholic) from Catholic schools and Baptised boys (other than Catholic) from non-Catholic schools

School Fees and Bursary Program

View our 2019 Schedule of Fees. Applications to our Bursary Program can be made by families in need or disadvantage.

Bursary Program

The College considers applications for the Bursary Program where a family is in need or disadvantaged and where financial hardship precludes a family from paying full fees. Applications for financial assistance are means-tested and assessed against the need of other Bursary applicants.

For new students to the College, applications for a bursary must be made at the same time as the enrolment application. A family who has already received an offer of an enrolment place is deemed, on financial grounds, to be ineligible for financial assistance unless a significant change of circumstances can be demonstrated.

Applications for Bursaries are confidential.

View our Bursary Policy.

Please contact Bala Benjamin, Head of Business and Finance, for further information regarding the Bursary Program: benjamin.b@saintaug.nsw.edu.au or 9938 8200.

Indigenous Bursary Program

The College offers an Indigenous Bursary Program. Please contact Margaret Oates, College Registrar for further information: registrar@saintaug.nsw.edu.au or (02) 9938 8223.

How early do I need to submit an Application for Enrolment?

Applications for Enrolment close two years prior to the requested year of entry. Applications for Year 5, 2020 and Year 7, 2020 close on Friday, 23 March 2018. 

Is there an advantage to submitting an application as early as possible after birth?

All applicants have up until the closing date to submit an Application for Enrolment and priority isn't given based on the date of receipt. However, late applications will not be given the same priority as applications received on time.

You are welcome to submit an application at any time after your son's birth. While an early application doesn't affect enrolment priority, it provides parents with peace of mind that the application has been made. We will contact you two years prior to the requested entry year to request further details.

Does St Augustine’s College offer scholarships?

No, we do not offer scholarships at this time.

I have missed the closing date for enrolment applications. Can I still submit an application?

Yes, late applications are accepted for our waiting list. Please note however, late applications will be given a lower priority than applications received before the closing date.

My son is not Catholic, can he still apply?

Yes, certainly. Please view our Enrolment Policy for details of how enrolment offers are prioritised. 

I printed and completed a hard copy of the Enrolment for Application but there is now an online form. Can I still submit the paper application or do I need to complete the details again online?

Hard copy applications will be accepted up until 23 March 2018. Applications for Enrolment after this date will only be accepted via our online enrolment form.
