Monte is a vibrant community that offers places to girls from a variety of primary schools. We do not require applicants to sit an examination or College interview before being offered a place.

We encourage families to attend our annual Open Day or book a term tour to see what Monte has to offer. All aspects of the College — academic, pastoral, spiritual and extra-curricular programs — are showcased on the day, with displays, demonstrations and activities taking place throughout.

Registration is essential.

An acceptance fee of $500 will be required to secure her place. This fee is non-refundable.

Applications are accepted from non-Catholics. Their names will remain on the Waiting List until we start the final enrolment process two years out from Year 7. It will be at this time that a position may become available.

As per our Enrolment Policy, priority on the Waiting List is given to daughters of Alumni and siblings of current, past and future students with a confirmed place.

Confirmation of enrolment is needed two years before expected commencement date. At this time the Confirmation of Enrolment Fee (currently $2200) is required to be paid to confirm a student’s place at Monte. This fee is non-refundable.

Yes – until such time that we receive the baptism certificate your daughter’s name will be placed on the wait list. Upon receipt, if there are confirmed places remaining in her year of entry, an offer of a confirmed place will be made. If not, her name will remain on the wait list, but with the original date of application. 

The family reference can be from a parish priest, a family friend or long-standing colleague. There is no specific content that must be included in a reference. Typically referees say how they know the family, how long they have known them and comment on the family values. If appropriate, they can make comment about the parents’ participation in their local parish and their commitment to providing their children with a Catholic education.

Yes – applications are welcomed from non-Catholic applicants. However, non-Catholic applicant names will be placed on the wait list. Non-Catholic applicants are not eligible for an offer of a confirmed place until we begin the final enrolment process two years out from Year 7.

Her name will be placed on the wait list for her year of entry.

No offers are made to the wait list until applicants are in early Year 5 (two years out from entry into Year 7).

At this time families who applied when there were still vacancies, and consequently have confirmed places, are asked to finalise the enrolment or advise the College they no longer require a place for their daughter. The places relinquished are re-offered to applicants on the wait list.

Places are offered to waitlisted students in the following order:

1.  Daughters of Alumni

2.  Siblings

3.  Baptised Catholic girls attending a Catholic primary school

4.  Baptised Catholic girls attending a non-Catholic primary school

5.  Non-Catholic girls

Within each one of the above categories, offers are made in date order of when an application was received.
