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.

On receipt of the Application Form and relevant documents your daughter’s enrolment information / enrolment details will be added to our intake list for the nominated year of commencement.

The acceptance process commences when your daughter is in Year 5. Prospective families will be notified of the process during Term 2.

If your daughter’s application has been successful an Offer of Placement will be made by the College Principal at her discretion by the end of Year 5. You must formally accept your daughter’s position at the College by returning the signed Acceptance Letter. An acceptance fee of $500 is also payable. This is refundable in the first year of enrolment as a fee reduction in Term 1.

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 Catholic College family, including her Year Co-ordinator, Tutor and her Year 10 Big Sister.
