Enrolment at XCC

Thank you for considering Xavier Catholic College for your child’s high school journey.

We know choosing the right secondary school for your child is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. At Xavier Catholic College, we nurture the growth of our students through outstanding academic programs, inclusive spiritual formation opportunities, nurturing Pastoral Care for all students, and a wide variety of extracurricular and sporting opportunities.

Applications for Enrolment 

Parents may submit an enrolment application for their child at any time. Please note your application is an expression of interest only. It does not guarantee your child a place at the College. 

Our primary intake each year is for Year 7 of the following school year. Enrolment applications for Year 7 will be reviewed after the application cut-off date, which usually falls around Term 1 of the year prior to commencement. Please be aware applications submitted more than 1 year prior to the year of commencement will not be reviewed until the application cut-off date has passed. Submitting an application for a Year 7 intake years in advance will not give your child any additional advantage.

We also consider students for other year levels, provided positions are available. Enrolment applications for students in Years 8-12 may not be reviewed until a position is likely to become available.

Priority Offers

Xavier Catholic College is a diverse Catholic community in the Jesuit tradition, and we welcome students of all faiths, regardless of background. We believe that diversity in our school community enriches both our school and the experiences of our students. However, all students and their families are required to respect our Catholic values and beliefs. 

When spaces are limited, Xavier College employs a transparent process to determine the priority of enrolment. This order of enrolment priority is available in the Diocese of Lismore Catholic Schools Enrolment Policy and Fees.

The Application Process

  • Submit a completed enrolment application form. A list of the required documentation to support your application is available via the online application portal.
  • Should a position be available in your child’s selected cohort, our Enrolments Team will then contact you to arrange an interview with you and your child.
  • Offers of enrolment are made after the interview process is complete.
  • Offers of enrolment must be accepted or declined within 14 days of receipt.
  • If you are asked to provide additional documentation, we ask that you do so as quickly as possible to ensure the enrolment process can proceed smoothly.
  • A $400 enrolment fee is required at the time of acceptance, which will be credited to your school fees.

College Tours

Where possible, we offer College tours to prospective families at the time of an enrolment interview. Our Enrolments Team will discuss this with you when scheduling your interview.

If your child is commencing Year 7 in 2024, we are currently taking bookings for College Tours on select dates in Term 1. Please book your place on the tour online. College tours are being offered in lieu of our traditional Open Night, which will not be held this year. If you wish to visit the College, you will need to book a place on our College tour list.

Unfortunately, we are not able to offer group tours to students in other year levels at this time.
