Enrolment Procedure

We appreciate your interest in enrolling your daughter at Mercy Catholic College Chatswood.

The College is still accepting physical enrolment forms at our College Office on Archer St however we understand that some families are currently unable to submit enrolment forms in person, so we have now opened an Online Enrolment Platform.


We encourage enrolments for families from local Catholic parishes and local school communities who are committed to making a positive contribution to the life of the College and who will benefit from our academic and pastoral care programmes. Students from other Christian and non-Christian traditions will be considered based on intake availability for the nominated year. Please refer to the Diocesan Enrolment Policy.

Enrolment Applications can be submitted at any time during your daughter’s primary school years. However, to maximise the likelihood of acceptance, the College encourages you to ensure your daughter’s Application has been received by the time she is in Year 4.

If your daughter’s application has been successful an Offer of Placement will be made by the College Principal at her discretion as soon after receipt of your application as practicable, based on her year of entry. You must formally accept your daughter’s position at the College by returning the signed acceptance letter.

To support your daughter’s transition into the College, the College offers a compulsory Orientation Day as well as a Parents & Friends Welcome Evening which allows your daughter and you to meet her extended Mercy family, including her Year Co-ordinator, Tutor and her Year 10 Big Sister.

Years 8 – 11 Enrolment

The College will consider applications for enrolment in Years 8 – 11. To begin the enrolment process families need to complete and submit an application. An interview with the Principal will then be arranged.
