How to Enrol
at Glasshouse Christian College
Here is the simple, five-step process to enrol your child at Glasshouse Christian College. Remember that you are welcome to ring Sonya our registrar on 07 5439 0033 or email her at email@example.com anytime during the enrolment process and she will be happy to guide you through.
Step 1: Submission of Enrolment Application.
Step 2: Supporting documentation required.
Step 3: Acknowledgement of Application.
Step 4: Enrolment Interview.
Step 5: Letter of Offer and Confirmation of Placement.
APPLICATIONS HAVE NOW CLOSED FOR YEAR 6 AND YEAR 7 IN 2021
If enrolment cannot be offered at the time of application, an applicant’s name will be placed in a waiting pool for the requested year of entry. If the request can't be fulfilled for that year the application will be automatically rolled to the next year.
Applications on the waiting pool are valid for three years.
College Considerations for Admission
When making offers of an interview which may, in turn, lead to an offer of a place at the College, the College considers the following in no particular order:
whether the child has siblings currently enrolled at the College;
whether the applicant is a child of a current College staff member;
whether the child is within a family who are active members of a Christian church including a pastor’s reference;
children or grandchildren of former students of the College;
the social and academic balance of the existing year level cohort at point of entry;
sons or daughter of ministers of the Baptist denomination;
evidence of a place at a similar Christian school elsewhere in Australia or overseas if a family relocates to the area;
a student’s willingness and ability to contribute to the wider life of the College;
evidence of a student’s good character and leadership skills;
the alignment of the family’s beliefs and values with those of the College;
gender class balance; and
the lodgement date of the Enrolment Application.
Please note that all admissions are at the sole discretion of the Principal.
As places at the College are in high demand, we encourage families to apply for enrolment as early as possible and we accept applications from birth.
Submit an Application
It is important that you follow the below steps when completing an ‘Enrolment Application’ form:
- Download the Enrolment Application Form using the button above.
- After downloading the above form, our preferred method is that it is opened and completed in Adobe (rather than in a browser*). This will allow you to submit the form to us electronically once completed (you will then not need to print and deliver your application to us).
If you do not have Adobe Reader or Acrobat, you can download a free copy by clicking the button above. If you have Adobe installed and the Enrolment Application form still opens in a browser window, you can right-click on the downloaded file name and choose to ‘Open With’: Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat.
*Please note that if you open the application form in your browser then the electronic submit button at the bottom of the form will NOT be clickable and you will then need to print the form and mail it to us.
In all cases, early submission of the Enrolment Application is recommended due to waiting pools in some year levels.
