It is almost impossible to forecast how long you may have to wait, as it requires a vacancy to arise which is then filled according to our order of preference for consideration.

Interviews will take place from Term 3 for Years 1-13 and six months prior to an applicant turning 5 years of age, subject to space availability and enrolment criteria. You will be contacted to arrange a date and time. You may contact the Enrolments Administrator for an update on your child’s application.

Once the Application Form has been processed and checked against our Enrolment Criteria, you will be contacted in due course for an interview subject to space availability. At the interview your child will complete a few simple activities and you will have the opportunity to ask any further questions. After the interview, you will be notified by mail as to whether your child has been accepted. At any stage of the process we are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Every year we will email a waitlist response form to applications older than 1 year.  It is important you return this form, along with any updated school reports and change of contact details.  If you do not respond to this request your application will be removed and you will need to reapply for a place at Elim Christian College.
