Enrolment process and fees

St Catherine’s has a simple four step enrolment process. Most girls start in Kindergarten, Year 3 or Year 5 in the Junior School, and Year 7 in the Senior School. If places become available in other years, they are offered to girls on the waitlist in order of their registration date.

Interviews are generally held 18 months in advance of Kindergarten entry and two years before entry into Years 5 and 7. Interviews for other years are arranged as places become available.

Step 3: Accept your letter of offer. After a successful interview and if a place is available, a letter of offer will be sent. Parents  have two weeks to accept the place, which will be held upon receipt of a non-refundable, non-transferable enrolment fee.

Step 4: Student Orientation Day. During the term before entry, incoming girls are invited to an Orientation Day, sit a test, meet staff and learn about the year ahead.
