Application Process

Thank you for your interest in enrolling at Emmanuel College. At Emmanuel College it is our intention to offer places to those families and students whom we think will best benefit from our school environment.

Our school has a studious and happy culture, where there is widespread respect for one another and a willingness to support the ethos of the College in every way. Our students are willing to serve their community, to commit themselves to high standards of Presentation, Conduct and Effort, and commit to maintaining an environment where all people are valued and respected.

We are not a selective school academically, but we are unapologetic about being highly selective behaviourally. We seek to enrol students who are willing to try hard to succeed and who show genuine character and willingness to contribute to the life of the College.

We are a Christian school. This does not mean that we only enrol people committed to the Christian faith. We have students from many different faiths, and some from non-faith backgrounds. However, we require all students and families to recognise that we are a Christian school, and to respect and support that ethos.

While we do not guarantee a place for siblings, we give preference to siblings, where an older sibling is already enrolled.

Below is an explanation of the process for applying for the enrolment of a student at Emmanuel College. If you have any questions about this process, please contact our Enrolments Registrar:
