An application to enrol your child at St James Lutheran College is completed online. A non-refundable fee of $50 is charged per application. If you have any questions regarding the application process, please don’t hesitate to contact our Registrar at registrar@stjameslc.qld.edu.au or 41285500.

STEP 1. Enrolment Application

You should have the following ready for your child’s application (where applicable).

  • Ensure you have completed a college tour of St James prior to submitting your application. A tour can be arranged by contacting our Registrar on the above details.
  • Your child’s birth certificate
  • Copies of school reports from the previous four semesters (if applicable)
  • NAPLAN results (if applicable)
  • Reports or support materials/plans pertaining to medical or learning needs
  • Court documents and parenting orders (if applicable)

Apply to enrol online. All the documents MUST be attached before step 2 is considered.

STEP 2. Assessment of your application

Once your application has been submitted online, you will be sent an email confirmation. The application then progresses to the Registrar for assessment. An interview will be based on merit, and conversations around whether St James Lutheran College is the best possible fit for your child as well as other enrolment priorities, for example, siblings already attending the College.

STEP 3. Interviews and offers

If your child progresses to the next phase, they will be required to attend an interview to meet the head of Sub-school, after which we determine whether we can offer a place for your child. During the interview you may discuss such things as subject offerings or activities suited to your child’s needs and interests.

STEP 4. Acceptance

If your enrolment application is approved, you will be notified with a formal offer of enrolment. On acceptance you and your child agree to all terms in the enrolment application forms. Upon acceptance, you will be required to pay an immediate non-refundable $100 Enrolment Confirmation Fee, which is required prior to your child’s confirmed start date. This fee is applied as a credit to your fees account once your child commences at St James.
