We are delighted that you are considering becoming part of
the Holy Cross College community. We are happy to accept enrolment applications
at any time for all year levels; however, our major intake years are
Kindergarten and Year Seven. Enrolment interviews for Kindergarten take place
in the year prior to the student starting school. If the student is entering
Pre-kindergarten, the Kindergarten interview may take place at the same time;
however, acceptance into Pre-kindergarten does not guarantee a place in Kindergarten.
Once a student is enrolled in Kindergarten, they will begin their journey
through Junior, Middle and Senior Schools. Enrolment interviews for places
in Year Seven take place when the students are in Year Five.
