Enrolment Policy and Procedure

​Consideration for enrolment of students will be based on a combination of the following:


St John's College Enrolment Policy


St John's College provide a quality education in an environment that nurtures children in the Catholic faith and Christian based Pastoral care.

Families seeking enrolment are required to express and commit that they share the expressed values of the school and are willing to support and contribute to the school's mission, vision, ethos, and charism.

While the College community recognises and accepts an obligation to respect all religious beliefs and Indigenous Spirituality, it is imperative that the Catholic life, nature, and ethos of the College be maintained across the whole school population.

Guidelines for Enrolment at St. John's College

The process of enrolment is to be guided by principles and values of the Good Samaritan Order: Prayer, Community, Hospitality, The Word of God, Listening, Balance, Compassion, Healing, Humility, Stewardship, Peace and Partnerships.

We are also guided by our Johnnies Way Framework: “We are called to​ be Neighbour to all" by being: Transforming, Reflective, Inclusive, Collaborative and Engaging.

  • 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 student's name will be held on the waiting list    unless you notify the College that you do not want to proceed with your application.

The following Brisbane Catholic Education guidelines and processes for inclusive education are followed at a school level and can be viewed at the below links.
