ELTHAM College is an open entry, coeducational school that celebrates individuality and welcomes students of all backgrounds, talents and abilities. We accept applications for entry across all year levels from Early Learning (3 and 4 year old Kindergarten) to Year 12, where places are available. Fee Information can be found here.
Please take the time to look around our website and get to know us a bit better. When you are ready, we would love to meet you! One of our ELTHAM in Action School Tours is the perfect introduction or if you prefer, a personal tour can be arranged.
An ELTHAM for a Day experience is also available to students entering Year 7 and above. ELTHAM for a Day lets students get a real feel for what it’s like to be a part of ELTHAM and it’s our way of helping you be 100% sure that ELTHAM College is the right fit for you and your family.
The first step is to complete an Application Form and return it to the Registrar’s Office, together with a copy of your child’s birth certificate and the non-refundable $100 application fee. Applications for the Early Learning Centre must also be accompanied by a copy of your child’s immunisation records.
You will then receive a letter to confirm that we have received your application, noting that we will contact you once processing of your child’s year level of entry commences. In the meantime, we will invite you to attend our annual Open Day and other special events along the way.
Student Information and Interview
When we are ready to process your child’s year level of entry, we will ask you to complete our New Student Profile Form and return this together with a copy of your child’s most recent school and NAPLAN reports (if applicable). Once this has been received, you and your child will be invited to attend an interview with the relevant school section Director.
Based on the New Student Profile Form, reports and interview, a Letter of Offer may be forwarded. This will include Acceptance and Confirmation of Place documentation.
The Acceptance and Confirmation of Place documentation is to be returned within 14 days of receiving the Letter of Offer, together with payment of relevant fees as outlined on page 2 of the Application Form. Once this is returned your child has secured a place at ELTHAM.
Transition to ELTHAM
The next step is ensuring a positive transition to ELTHAM College for your child.

We are very happy to answer any questions you may have. Our Registrar Liz Dosen is available by phone 03 9433 9935 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to welcoming you and your family to ELTHAM.
