Overview of our Enrolment Enquiry and Application process

Although our enrolments process is individualised for each family, you will find below some common milestones behind each application.

Step 1: Submit an Enrolment Enquiry

As a first step, please contact our Enrolments Team by completing the enrolment enquiry form. Our Enrolments Team will assist you with understanding our eligibility criteria and guide you to begin an enquiry for enrolment here at Mancel College.

 

Step 2: Tour our College

Our Enrolments Team will assist to organise a time for you to come and visit our beautiful college grounds located at Fig Tree Pocket. This gives you the opportunity to see our facilities, meet some of our team and attain an insight of our day-to-day atmosphere here at Mancel College.

 

Step 3: Formal Enrolment Application & Documentation

If the Mancel College program shows potential appropriateness for your Child, the Enrolments Team will invite you to submit a formal application. A formal application requires submission of the following supporting documentation:

  • A report from a speech language pathologist, including the results of a standardised language assessment
  • A hearing assessment report for Prep – Year 2 age students
  • Relevant paediatrician and medical reports
  • Birth certificate and visa documentation (if applicable)

Parents are also recommended to submit:

  • Current Individual Education Plans (IEPs)/Individual Learning Plans (ILPs)
  • Current therapy reports
  • Current school progress reports

A formal application also requires payment of a non-refundable $500 application fee.

The Enrolments Team will review all submitted documentation at this time and advise you if any further information is required.

Please note: The safety of our prospective students is important to us. Therefore, we ask all applicants to disclose any care arrangements for your child on their application form and provide copies of existing court orders regarding legal requirements relating to custody.

 

Step 4: Interview with our Head of College

As our college offers a multidisciplinary and specialised curriculum, we need to ascertain that language is the primary barrier to learning and that we can effectively support your child’s needs. At this stage, to assist with further understanding your child’s required level of support, we schedule an interview with your Family and our Head of College to discuss your family’s specific needs.

For primary aged students, during this visit our Allied Health Service Coordinator will also support your child to participate in set tasks that look to identify where your child is currently sitting in terms of readiness for our college.

For secondary aged students, we may arrange a morning visit to our relevant grade level classroom to observe your child’s interaction and participation in our learning environment.

 

Step 5: Educational Observation and/or Outcome

Following the interview stage your child may be offered a place at Mancel College. Alternatively, a visit to your Child’s current educational setting may be required to determine final eligibility. Placements are offered based on student profile, appropriateness for our program and vacancies. All enrolments are at the principal’s discretion.

 

PLACEMENT

If your application is successful, you will receive an official letter of offer from our Principal via email. If your child meets eligibility criteria and there is no available vacancy, you will be placed on a waitlist and notified accordingly.

For a placement to be confirmed, a letter of offer must be signed and returned, along with a $1250 enrolment deposit.

Please note: The $1250 enrolment deposit will be deducted from your child’s final college fee invoice.

 

BEFORE YOUR CHILD’S FIRST DAY

Our Enrolments Team will be in touch with you to reconfirm that all required paperwork has been received. They will also provide information on the required uniform, book list and will advise which class your child will be joining.
