Procedure for Enrolment

At Geneva Christian College staff we view the school as an extension of the home, sharing the common goal of training and preparing children for life after school, by giving them the academic, social, emotional and spiritual skills necessary to achieve their potential. If the school is to be successful in its purposes and objectives, it is necessary that the training received at home and at school be consistent in character, content, and conduct.

The admission of students will be based chiefly on the fulfilment of these qualifications. Also, in considering students for enrolment, a second major criteria is the attitude of the student towards the policies of the school. To be successful, the school must have students who are prepared to willingly cooperate with its purpose and objectives. Students will be required to sign a student contract at enrolment. Attendance at Geneva is a privilege not a right. Our goals are not to reform, but to train children of every ability, in the way they should go, establishing them on their right path in life.

The enrolment process is as follows:

Step 1 – Make an appointment to visit the school and attend an interview with the Principal, bringing with you any reports, assessments or diagnosis. At this interview information will be provided to you to go away and think about. If you are still keen to proceed with the enrolment process then:

Step 2 – Make a second appointment to attend an interview with the appropriate teacher. At this interview they will discuss classroom procedures and programmes with you and have a conversation with your child. The teacher will again ask you to go away and think it over.

Step 3 – If you are still keen to proceed, make a third call to the school to seek enrolment.

In the meantime, the teacher and Principal will have had a discussion in regards to your possible enrolment and highlight any queries or concerns they may have and will discuss with you, should you take Step 3.

Once this process has been undertaken and the enrolment has been accepted, an application and associated paperwork can be completed and diagnostic testing organised for the child.

You as a parent can then make arrangements to pay fees regularly, discuss arrangements for the attendance and transportation of your child and any requirements regarding school uniform.

These fees do not include excursions or camps. You will be notified of these costs as they arise. There may also be fees associated with specialist subjects. You will be notified if this applies to your child.

In the past we have always helped support parents who required financial assistance. If you wish to discuss this, please do not hesitate to contact the school office and you will be issued with the associated paperwork for financial assistance approval.

Keeping your fees up to date, indicates continued enrolment for your child.

Fee invoices will be issued at the beginning of the year, for the whole year. They are payable either in full at the commencement of year (a discount applies), at the beginning of each term or fortnightly, by either cash, credit card, cheque, Centrepay, direct debit. Fee monies paid will not be refunded, should the child’s enrolment cease during the school year.

Fees will be indexed each calendar year to represent the inflation rate.
