How to Apply

To apply for a place at Fintona, whether you are a local or international student, all you have to do is simply follow four easy steps.

1. Apply online. Applications for entry to Fintona, from the Early Learning Centre (comprising 3 year old and 4 year old Kindergarten) to Year 12, can be made online. An application is a pre-requisite for enrolment but does not guarantee a place. A non-refundable Application Fee of $150 (inclusive of GST) is payable before placement on the waiting list. Payments can be made via our secure payment system.

Priority of admission to Fintona is as follows:

  1. Siblings of current students

  2. Siblings of past students

  3. Children of past students

  4. Children of permanent staff members

  5. Others

Within these groups, applications are ordered on the basis of application date.

2. Interview with the Principal. Applications are reviewed by the Registrar 18-24 months prior to the year of entry. The Registrar’s Office will contact you regarding your application and, if there is a position available, will arrange an interview with the Principal, the Head of the Early Learning Centre or Head of Junior School, as appropriate. All enrolments are subject to the outcome of the enrolment interview.

3. Accept the Enrolment Letter of Offer. Upon a successful interview, an Enrolment Letter of Offer will be made. A non-refundable family enrolment fee is payable upon acceptance of this offer. The fee is $600 for entry into the Early Learning Centre and $1,000 for Prep to Year 12.  Forward fees are also required which are credited to the first invoice regarding the enrolment.

4. Attend Orientation Day. In the year before entry, an invitation to attend an Orientation day will be sent.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
