The Santa Maria College enrolment policy provides enrolment preference to girls from Catholic primary schools in our region. The College is also mindful of our Good Samaritan tradition, demonstrating an inclusive approach for applicants from non-Catholic families where parents ask for their daughters to be educated in the Good Samaritan tradition.
Application forms should be lodged with the Admissions & Marketing Leader together with a lodgement fee of $66.00 (Administration fee).
Upon acceptance, a non-refundable Family Enrolment Contribution of $300 is payable to confirm your position. A compulsory Building Fund Levy of $625 per family is also payable each year, in addition to Tuition Fees.
