Applications for Enrolment 

Parents may submit an enrolment application for their child at any time. Please note your application is an expression of interest only. It does not guarantee your child a place at the College. 

Our primary intake is for Year 7 of the following school year. Enrolment applications for Year 7 will be reviewed after the application cut-off datePlease be aware applications submitted more than one year prior to the year of commencement will not be reviewed until the application cut-off date has passed. Submitting an application for a Year 7 intake years in advance will not give your child any additional advantage.

Priority Offers & Enrolment Policy

Xavier Catholic College is a vibrant Catholic community in the Jesuit tradition, and we welcome students of all faiths, regardless of background. We believe diversity in our school community enriches both our school and the experiences of our students. However, all students and their families are required to respect our Catholic values and beliefs. 

Catholic secondary schools in the Diocese of Lismore use an order of priority for enrolments. See our Enrolment Policy and Fees for more information.

The Application Process

  • Submit a completed enrolment application form. A list of the required documentation to support your application is available via the online application portal.
  • Our Enrolments Team will contact you to arrange an interview with you and your child as soon as possible.
  • Offers of enrolment can only be made once the interview process is complete.
  • If an offer of enrolment is made, it must be accepted or declined within 14 days of receipt.
  • If you are asked to provide additional documentation, please do so as quickly as possible. Any delays in providing the required documentation can delay the application process for your child.
  • A $400 enrolment fee is required at the time of acceptance, which will be credited to your school fees.

How to apply for enrolment:

Step 1: If you already have a Diocese of Lismore Compass login for Xavier Catholic College (or any other Diocese of Lismore Catholic school), log into your Compass account. You must use this login even if the child you are applying for does not currently attend a Diocese of Lismore Catholic school. 

For example, if you currently have a student attending Xavier Catholic College, but their younger sibling attends a non-Catholic primary school, use your Compass login that you use at Xavier Catholic College to complete the younger sibling's enrolment application.

Click "Existing Families with a Diocese of Lismore Compass username and password" below.

If you do not already have a Diocese of Lismore Compass login, you will need to create an account. Click "New Families to the Diocese of Lismore" below.

Step 2: Prepare your enrolment documents.

Step 3: Create or update your child’s profile and your profile

Step 4: Create an application for the school(s) to which you are applying. 

Please note that the application process is in two stages: creating a student profile and separately lodging your child's application for enrolment. If you're unsure if your application has been lodged successfully, log into your Compass profile (linked above), then check your child's application status. A fully-submitted application will have a blue 'Submitted' tag below the application.
