Enrolling at McCarthy College

Enrolling at McCarthy College

McCarthy College enrols students from Year 7 to Year 12.

Enrolments are considered at any time throughout the year, however, the main enrolment period commences in February of the year prior to enrolment.

Catholic schools have a strong religious dimension and people of other faiths who wish to enrol in Catholic schools are expected to participate in all religious activities at the College.

You are welcome to contact our Enrolment Officer at any time to help you obtain further information or guide you through the enrolment process.

Step 2:

Complete and lodge the Enrolment Application

Contact us for a copy of the enrolment application>

It consists of several parts but will allow the College to best identify your child’s requirements and needs.

If you are enrolling your child in a Catholic school for the first time you will need to complete all sections, or only sections A-D if your child is currently in a Catholic school in the Diocese of Parramatta.

When completed, review the terms and conditions of enrolment and then parents/carers should sign the enrolment application (which contains the terms and conditions of enrolment). You will also need to pay a non-refundable application fee of $50.

Please note that submitting an application does not guarantee automatic placement.

When you have completed the enrolment form you can bring it to the College.

Step 3:

Your letter of offer

The principal will consider the completed application and may make an offer to enrol your child at the school. Your application does not guarantee an automatic place at McCarthy Catholic College. We will notify you of the results of your application.

Step 4:

Acceptance of offer

We will advise the outcome of your application in writing shortly after the interview.

If you receive a Letter of Offer, you are required to return the Enrolment Acceptance Form and pay the non-refundable Enrolment Deposit ($300 for Secondary students) by the requested date to secure your position. This will contribute towards your first term school-based fees.
