Who can apply for enrolment
There are many misconceptions around who is eligible for enrolment in a Catholic school. Like all Catholic schools, St Francis Xavier’s does not have geographical catchment restrictions and you or your child do not have to be Catholic.
As a Catholic school, we recognise and value the uniqueness and individuality of students and families, and the human dignity of each person. We are welcoming to all and serve the needs of families who will benefit from our service. This includes those from culturally diverse backgrounds including Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples, those who seek to deepen their faith in a Catholic context, those from backgrounds of marginalisation and disadvantage including the economically and spiritually poor, and those with a disability.

When to apply
Although our enrolment period is generally early in the year preceding enrolment, applications for enrolment are welcome at any time.
Applications for Prep are accepted up to two years prior before starting. Prep interviews are conducted in Terms 1 and 2 of the year preceding enrolment; however, applications will be considered later if there are available spaces, or waitlisted. Confirmation of enrolments are made soon after the Prep interviews.
How to apply
The quickest, easiest and most convenient way to apply is by completing our online application form using the link below.
