Student Enrolments

Enrolment Process

Geelong Baptist College has an open enrolment policy. This means that any student can apply for enrolment regardless of religious affiliation.

Parents who place their children in the College will do so for a variety of reasons and come from a wide range of backgrounds. 

A place may be offered to a student following an interview with the Principal and on the basis that the student:

  • is seeking enrolment into a Year level that has the capacity to accept another enrolment;
  • makes a commitment to the College behaviour standards and discipline policies;
  • respects the Christian viewpoint, including participation in assemblies, devotions and special services;
  • has any special needs that the College is equipped to meet in terms of staffing and resources; 

 

and parents:

  • allow the child to share fully in the life and program of the College;
  • support the aims of the College;
  • agree to support the College behaviour standards and discipline policies;
  • respect the Christian ethos of the College;
  • pay fees promptly.

 

The Principal will make the final decision about a child’s enrolment at Geelong Baptist College.
