Good Things Come To Those That Wait

All applications are immediately placed on a Waiting List for your preferred year level of entry and you will receive confirmation of this from the Admissions Department. Our Admissions Department will be in contact with you as soon as a place becomes available or we commence the intake process for a main intake year level (such as Prep, Year 4 or Year 7). Please see our Enrolment Terms & Conditions for more information.

Enrolment Interview

All enrolments are subject to a successful enrolment interview. The enrolment interview is an informal conversation where we hope to learn more about your daughter, her interests, hobbies and learning strengths. This interview also provides an opportunity for your family to learn more about our school values, offerings, expectations of our students and more.

Letter Of Offer

Once the enrolment interview has been conducted, the School may be in a position to provide a Letter of Offer inviting your child and family to join our community. To accept this place, we require a non-refundable enrolment fee of $2,000.00 to be submitted ($1,000.00 for ELC students) in addition to the completed paperwork, by the specified deadline.

Welcome To Strathcona

Once the required payment and paperwork has been received and processed by our Admissions Department, we will send you a letter confirming your child’s enrolment. Congratulations and we thank you for choosing Strathcona Girls Grammar.

Your Strathcona Start

Commencing at a new school signifies a time of growth and tremendous possibilities. Transition, therefore, is of fundamental importance for your child as it ensures they are fully supported as they continue or commence their learning journey with Strathcona. We will be in contact with you in the months leading up to Day 1 as your family prepares to join the School and also throughout the first few weeks of attendance. Many orientation opportunities exist for our new students and we are here to help.

PLEASE NOTE: This is the application journey for domestic students. If you daughter is, or plans to, attend Strathcona on a 500 or similar visa, please click here for information about how to apply as an Full Fee Paying Overseas / International Student.
