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.

The Application Process

The first step is to complete an Application Form and return it to the Admissions 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 Supplementary Academic Information 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 Supplementary Academic Information 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. To view a copy of the Confirmation of Place Agreement document please click here.

We are very happy to answer any questions you may have. Our Head of Admissions is available by phone 03 9433 9935 or email enrolments@elthamcollege.vic.edu.au

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to ELTHAM.
