Step 3 - Processing of Application

The application assessment will take between 1-3 business days. Once the application has been successfully assessed, the College Enrolment Officer will make contact to book an enrolment interview and advise if any further documentation is required.

Step 4 – Enrolment Interview

Attending the interview is a requirement for enrolment and it is important that the prospective student/s are also present at the interview. (A phone interview can be arranged in certain circumstances)

At the interview the College principal will discuss the application as well as go through the College Community Agreement, which will provide a brief overview of the College history, the Christian ethos of the College as well as general information about curriculum, uniforms, facilities and discipline etc.

Step 5 – Formal Offers

Subject to interview* and successful assessment of application, your child/children will either be:

1. offered a place for immediate start or
2. placed on a waitlist

Once an official offer has been made, you are requested to pay the $350** refundable Enrolment Bond and sign the College Community Agreement to secure your place at Cornerstone.

* The Principal may, if deemed necessary, refer the prospective student/s to be assessed by a member the College’s Learning Support Team to determine if the College can adequately care for the student.

** This bond is credited to your school account and taken off your initial fees.  The $350 fee covers the first child with an additional $150 for each subsequent child. DOES NOT APPLY FOR PEBBLES STUDENTS

Step 6 – Acceptance of Offer

Acceptance of the offer is made official once the Enrolment Bond has been paid and the College Community Agreement has been signed. Should an accepted enrolment be cancelled the Enrolment Bond will be refunded once all outstanding accounts* have been settled.

It is important that you advise the College Administration of any change in your contact details so that we have up-to-date information.

*A minimum of ten weeks notice must be given for a withdrawal, otherwise you are liable to pay a terms tuition in full.
