1. First Contact

We welcome and promote general enquires from families regarding enrolments throughout the year. Families within travelling distance are encouraged to visit and familiarise themselves with the opportunities available through our Distance Education School at Groves Christian College. We have students enrolled from all over Queensland and provide opportunities for social events and learning experiences. Students are required to commit to their studies, cooperate with their parents (as home educators), do their best and work with their teacher.

Families need to commit to the College in the following ways:

  • Educationally, by being an active partner in the education of their children

  • Be familiar with the Standard of Service documentation

  • Engaging in learning & submitting assessments by due dates

  • Making time available for teacher contact

  • Keeping us informed of any changes in contact details

  • Financially, in the timely payment of school fees

2. Submission of Enrolment Application

Commencement of formal enrolment process.

The application does not guarantee entry into the College but starts the enrolment consideration process.
Documentation required to be provided by you include:

  • Application of Enrolment Form

  • Copy of child’s birth certificate

  • Recent reports & educationally relevant documentation

  • Diagnostic Test

Applications can be forwarded to:

The Registrar, Groves Christian College, PO Box 27, Kingston QLD 4114 or submitted via email to de@groves.qld.edu.au

3. Enrolment Consideration Process

We will consider the information you provided to allow families and the College to determine educational needs and available resources before an offer is made.

Potential students have to undertake testing so that the student’s educational needs may be audited along with a review of report cards etc. Depending on the results or the information contained in the application, some students may be required to undergo further testing before their enrolment application can proceed. In some situations external consultant reports may be required. Families may incur costs gaining these reports. Senior students (Year 10-12) will need a SET Plan.

4. Formal Interview with a Senior Staff Member

Once enough information is available for us to determine the educational needs of the proposed student, an interview with the family will be arranged via phone or in person, depending on their availability. The purpose of the interview is to discuss the suitability of the College, Family and Student to each other. We consider the:

  • Educational offerings & needs of the children

  • Shared values in regards to the ethos of the College

  • Financial, social & cooperation commitment of parents to the College

  • The arrangement to facilitate home education

  • Questions arising from the Standard of Service

  • Student to contribute positively to the College community while attending DE/Day School Events

The discussion gives all parties the opportunity to consider these aspects before entering an educational partnership through a formal contract. Following the interview, the College will determine if an enrolment placement will be offered. Likewise, parents can evaluate the College to determine suitability for their family & the learning needs of their children.

5. Notification

Following the interview, the College will notify you to confirm if a placement is offered or not.

To secure any offer of placement, the family will need to:

  • Submit a signed enrolment contract with our College.

  • Submit other required documents (medical, birth certificate).

  • Pay the balance of fees.

6. Final Steps

Following these actions the College will issue you with a receipt and information letter letting you know the next steps, including commencement date and a copy of the signed enrolment contract. We would like to thank you for considering our College for your child’s education. As an overview please see the last page which shows the flow of our enrolment process, and will help you to know where you are up to in that process.
