How to enrol

Start your learning journey today and discover the infinite possibilities

 

Santa Sophia Catholic College provides a contemporary approach to learning that prepares students for life through wisdom, faith, hope and love.

Please note that as a Catholic school we have a strong religious dimension and people of other faiths who wish to enrol must be able to support and fully participate in the religious activities of the College.

While enrolments are taken at any time during the year, the main enrolment period each year is from the beginning of the school year until the end of May. We are currently enrolling for 2022.

While enrolment for Kindy and Year 7 is closed, enrolment remains open for Years 1 to 6 and Years 8 to 11.

Should you have any questions regarding current vacancies, the application process or school tours, please contact our friendly Enrolments team on 8801 6200 weekdays during school hours.

 

 

Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision.

We encourage parents to organise a time to tour our school, meet our staff and see our learning in action. There are also a number of organised events, such as Open Days, which will also help future parents to get a 'feel' for our school.
