Enrolment Policy

​Brisbane Catholic Education Policy

When enrolling students, BCE schools give priority to those who are baptised Catholic or, if enrolling in an ecumenical school, baptised in the faith of sponsoring churches.  Schools may also enrol students from other faith traditions whose families demonstrate that they share the expressed values of the school and who are willing to support and contribute to the school's vision and ethos.

St John's Policy

At St John's College, we will provide quality education in an environment that nurtures children in their Catholic faith. St John's aims to accept every baptised Catholic child.

The College recognises that it has an obligation to respect all​ religious beliefs. Parents and students of other faiths must support the Catholic ethos of the school.  It is important that the Catholocity of the College be maintained, across the whole school population and in any year level.

The following Brisbane Catholic Education policies, regulations and guidelines are followed at a school level and can be viewed on the Brisbane Catholic Education website: www.bne.catholic.edu.au

  • Students with Disabilities Policy
  • Enrolment Application Support Procedures for Students requiring Significant Educational Adjustments
  • Financial Accessibility Policy
  • Students who are at the Margins of Society and/or Out of Home Policy

Guidelines

The process of enrolment is to be guided by principles of justice and equity. Consideration for enrolment of students will be based on a combination of the following:

  • Catholic baptism
  • Catholic families
  • acceptance of the ethos and mission of a Catholic school
  • family and sibling involvement at the school
  • parents and child with parish involvement
  • attendance at a Catholic primary school
  • school support eg. enthusiasm, commitment of student and involvement of students and parents in school life
  • reference from primary school – especially regarding appropriate relationships and behaviour

Late applications will be considered only if places are available.  This also applies to late applications from Catholic families and siblings.  An interview does not necessarily mean that a place will be offered.  If a place is not available, your child's name will be held on the waiting list unless you notify the College that you do not want to proceed with your application.

NB:  Outstanding fee debt at other Brisbane Catholic Education schools must be resolved prior to enrolment confirmation.


Refundable Enrolment Bond

  1. An Enrolment Bond of $150.00 per student is required to confirm an acceptance of a place at St John's College.
  2. The Enrolment Bond is refunded on request when the last student from a family leaves the college after payment of all outstanding accounts and subject to the return of all hire and library books, provided one term's notice of leaving has been given. Notice is not required for graduating Year 12 students.
  3. The Enrolment Bond is not refunded if the student's enrolment is cancelled prior to entering.  In exceptional circumstances where parents can demonstrate factors outside their control lead to cancellation, they may apply to the Principal for a refund.​
