While most students start with us in Pre-K, Kindergarten and Year 7, the College warmly welcomes enrolment applications from students in all year groups.
Enrolment in Pre K, Kindergarten and Year 7
These are our main intake years. Please read the information below on timeframes for enrolment.
Please note that RHAC usually has many more applications for Year 7 than places available. Therefore, parents are strongly encouraged to enrol their children in RHAC’s Junior School as soon as a place becomes available.
Enrolment in Years 1-6 and 8-12
From time to time, a limited number of places become available in these year groups at various points during any given year. Prospective parents are strongly encouraged to apply for their child to start at RHAC as soon as a place becomes available and not wait until Year 7.
Students who enrol in a Pre-K program have guaranteed entry into Kindergarten. Students who are already a part of our Junior School in Year 6 are guaranteed entry into Year 7.
RHAC has an open enrolment policy. All College families are a valued part of our community, regardless of their world view or religious conviction. However, all RHAC students are expected to participate in Christian education lessons and other Christian based activities as determined by the College. RHAC nurtures and educates students in accordance with the doctrines, tenets, beliefs and teachings of the Anglican Church Diocese of Sydney.
The College will start assessing Year 7 applications, including offering enrolment interviews, at least 18 months in advance. Pre-K and Kindergarten applications will be considered approximately 12 months prior. The College is likely to have made all first round offers for Year 7 approximately 6 months in advance and first round offers for Pre-K and Kindergarten are likely to be sent approximately 3 months prior. Students who do not receive a first-round offer will remain on the waiting list. In our experience, a limited number of places do become available after the first round offers have been made.
Students who are not offered a place after the academic year commences remain on the waiting list and may be contacted if a place becomes available. This applies to all year groups.
