Can my child go to a different Catholic
secondary college?
Yes, you can apply for enrolment at any Catholic secondary
college. The success of your application will depend on the
numbers of applicants falling into the priority categories listed
on the left.

How do I find out more about the Catholic
secondary colleges in my area?
Often secondary college principals will come and talk to senior
primary school students about their college.
You can also attend college open days, which provide insights
into what the college has to offer. You will meet the students,
teachers and current parents and take a tour of the facilities
and grounds.
Many of our secondary colleges have strong bonds with their
feeder primary schools, and offer opportunities for the primary
students to visit and become involved in a range of learning
and sporting activities.

   When do I need to enrol my child in a
   secondary college?
   From this year SCS secondary colleges will enrol
   prospective students two years before the intended
   commencement date, i.e. Year 5 for enrolment into Year 7.
   Traditionally, secondary colleges in the Archdiocese of
   Sydney accept enrolments between March and the end
   of May. This varies from college to college, so contact
   the specific secondary college you are interested in for
   more details.

What are the fees?
Tuition fees are charged at all systemic primary and secondary colleges. In 2015,
SCS moved to a differentiated school tuition fee model. This means that there
will be slight variations in tuition fees from school to school, depending on the
socio-economic rating of the area in which the school is located.
On average, the tuition fees for a years 7-8 student are around $1,600 per year,
for a years 9-10 student, around $1,700 per year and for a years 11-12 student around
$2,200 per year. As mentioned, there will be some minor variations between schools.
As well as tuition fees, there are some separate school-based charges
(sport, excursions, technology etc.) and a School Building Levy. This levy is used to
help pay for the loans taken out by the parish or SCS to cover building works, repairs
and maintenance of school buildings.
At HSC level, there may also be some charges for specific subjects (e.g. Woodwork
and Construction).
Parents who need support to meet the cost of educating their child in a systemic
Catholic school may be eligible for a bursary through the Catholic Education
Foundation. Information about the Catholic Education Foundation can be obtained
from your local Catholic school or from the SCS website. School fee relief may
also be available to some families. Contact your local Catholic school for more
information about the school fees charged by that school.

What does ‘systemic’ mean and how are systemic schools
different from other Catholic schools?
Systemic Catholic schools are administered by SCS. All systemic schools work closely
with their parish, use a low fee model, and have access to centrally-funded programs.
They receive some government funding.
Congregational Catholic schools are run independently by religious orders. They
charge their own fees, and also receive some government funding, but under a
different model. Both systemic and congregational schools in the Archdiocese
of Sydney are responsible to the Archbishop of Sydney. The information in this
booklet refers only to Catholic systemic schools. There is a list of the congregational
secondary schools on page 47.

              for academic achievement and a strong connection to the local
              area. Students and teachers are proud of their consistently

              ‘Enlivened by the spirit’. This aim is lived out through formal
              Religious Education studies, a strong liturgical and prayer life

              student involvement with the St Vincent de Paul Society, regular
              visits to nursing homes and the Newtown Asylum Seekers’ Centre,

St Anthony’s Clovelly
St Brigid’s Coogee                                     Randwick’s Brigidine College is an excellent example of how a
                                                       Catholic education blends strong academic results with a rich
St Andrew’s Malabar                                    sense of meaning and wellbeing.
St Mary-St Joseph Maroubra                             The Sydney Morning Herald ranked Brigidine 56th in the state in
St Aidan’s Maroubra Junction                           the 2016 HSC, and the school often appears among their top 100
                                                       performers. Dedicated staff create and foster a strong culture of
St Francis of Assisi Paddington                        learning for HSC students, and for girls across every grade in
                                                       the school.
Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Randwick
                                                       In her Irish monasteries, St Brigid understood learning as a
St Margaret Mary’s Randwick North                      powerful way to develop individual potential, and the college
                                                       is committed to continuing her legacy. All Brigidine girls are
McAuley Rose Bay                                       encouraged to strive for excellence in everything they do.
St Charles’ Waverley                                   In partnership with the pursuit of academic achievement, the
Holy Cross Woollahra                                   school has a strong focus on the arts. Visual and performing arts
                                                       are highly valued, and there are ample opportunities for talented
                                                       students to perform.
                                                       Many other co-curricular activities enrich students’ learning and
                                                       create well-rounded, Christ-centred achievers. In particular, the
                                                       school and students are deeply committed to social justice issues
                                                       and have been since the college was founded in 1901. This passion
                                                       is born in the values for which St Brigid of Ireland is best known:
                                                       concern for the poor and marginalised, generosity and hospitality,
                                                       and living and acting with integrity.

               Staff consider the wellbeing of students a priority. All teachers
               know their students as individuals, and are attuned to their
               needs and development.
               The college provides a diverse range of co-curricular experiences
               for students including drama and vocal ensembles, theatre
               sports, a music tutor program, the new college band, debating

Our Lady of the Annunciation Pagewood                 The religious dimension of the college is well expressed through

                                                      for the students is a key reason why an atmosphere of pride,
