Thank you for your interest in Mercy Catholic College as a secondary school for your daughter.
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. (Hyperlink http://www.csodbb.catholic.edu.au/about/Policies)
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.
Attending our College Open Day or Open Morning is a recommended step in the enrolment process for all families. These events allow prospective students and families to experience and see the College first hand. Alternatively, you can organise a separate tour of the College. (Hyperlink to Book a Tour page)

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.
