ENROLMENT CRITERIA

 

Enrolments for the 2015 school year are now closed.

Villa Maria College has a strong reputation and therefore is highly regarded. Applications for places always exceed the number of places available. It is therefore important that prospective students apply early. The closing date for applications is 4pm on the 28 June 2015 for 2016 enrolments.            

If we have places available after accepting Preference students we are permitted to take up to 5% of our roll in Non-Preference students. Non-Preference students need to supply supporting documentation.  
 

Enrolment Process for Entry in 2016

Applications close on 28 June 2015 for enrolment in 2016.  While this is the closing date, you are advised to get your applications in as soon as possible.
