Please note, you will only receive one offer from a Catholic School. The Geelong Catholic Colleges work to review and process applications to ensure families seeking Catholic education receive their preference in accordance with the College's enrolment criteria. If your first preference school cannot offer you a place, you may receive an offer from your second preference. Please ensure your school preferences are listed in preferential order, and that you have lodged an application at each school.
Enrolments for entry at these year levels can be made at any time. Occasionally positions become available at Saint Ignatius College throughout the year and may occur at any year level.

Year 7 2025 academic scholarship applications will open in January 2024, with the test taking place at the College in February 2024.
These scholarships are awarded on the basis of performance on the examination. The scholarship entitles the successful applicants to a reduction of $1200 off the total school fees per year, for years 7 and 8. The scholarship will be reviewed at the end of the second year, based on academic and school performance.
Scholarship applications are not processed through the College. Saint Ignatius College uses the ACER (Australian Council for Educational Research) Scholarship test and is produced and marked by ACER. Scholarship level is LEVEL 1 – Year 7.
Parents will be informed via email if their daughter/son has been successful in their application.

The fund assists with financing the construction or maintenance of the College buildings. It is a voluntary donation which can be claimed as a tax deduction. The amount of $300 per family per year is the usual contribution that families give to assist us in keeping our facilities in the excellent condition that they are.
Goods and Services Tax
School fees and levies are in general exempt from GST.
A School Fee and Building Fund Payment Plan form will be sent out to each family before the end of the school year offering a variety of fee payment options.

We strive to provide a place for students who can demonstrate commitment to the College’s mission and vision and passionately pursue excellence.
We offer a limited number of bursaries for prospective students entering Years 7, 9 and 11 who would otherwise be unable to attend the College.
This bursary is by way of a contribution to the payment of school fees. This support is dependent on the bursary application and available funds.
Please note that a bursary applies to fees and not to levies.
Bursaries may be available for up to 6 years. As financial circumstances may change, there is a requirement for the bursary to be reviewed during the second year of assistance.
