Enrolment 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 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 Catholicity of the College be maintained, across the whole school population and in any year level.


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

  • Attendance at a Catholic Primary School

  • Acceptance of the ethos and mission of a Catholic school

  • Family and sibling involvement at the school

  • Parents and child with parish involvement

  • School support eg. enthusiasm, commitment of student, involvement of parents in school life

  • Reference from primary school - especially regarding appropriate relationships and behaviour

  • Late applications will be considered 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.

​Enrolment Bond

An Enrolment Bond of $150.00 for the 2019 school year is payable on acceptance of an offer of a place to St John’s College.
