All students need to apply for enrolment.

Applications for enrolment are accepted from all areas.

  • Children who are or children of parents / caregivers who are verified members of Elim Christian Centre
  • Siblings of Elim Christian College Students past or present – or younger siblings who will follow in the future
  • Children of parents who are staff of the Elim Christian Centre and all associated Elim Christian Centre Ministries (including the college)
  • Children whose parents are members of similar Christian churches
  • Length of time on waiting list
  • All enrolments are at the discretion of the Principal and are subject to ratification by the Board of Trustees of Elim Christian College.

The number of applicants on a waiting list varies from year level to year level and is constantly changing with names being added or deleted. Our waiting list is not a first-come-first-served list – applicants are interviewed according  to our enrolment criteria, and therefore it is impossible to forecast how long you may have to wait.

For Years 1-13 February 2022 intake, interviews will take place from Term 3 of 2021. For New Entrants, interviews usually take place between 3-6 months before the child’s fifth birthday. All interviews are subject to space availability and enrolment criteria – if a space is available you will be contacted to arrange a date and time. You may contact the Enrolments Administrator at any time for an update on your child’s application.

For guaranteed processing for 2022 intake, applications must be submitted by 31st July 2021 for our Botany, Golflands and Mt Albert Campus.

Once the Application has been processed and checked against our Enrolment Criteria, you will be contacted in due course for an interview should a space become available for your child. After the interview, you will be notified 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 complete 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 re-apply for a place at Elim Christian College with a new application form.
