Enrolment Information

Enrolment

The vision of Green Point Christian College is Excellence in Christ Centred Education.  As a ministry of Green Point Baptist Church, the College aims to support Christian parents in the education of their children.  However, places are available for children from families that are supportive of the policies of the College but are not practising Christians provided 80% of the students in each year come from practising Christian families.

A practising Christian family is considered to be a family who:
  • recognises and testifies to the Lordship of Jesus Christ;
  • has a commitment to model and teach Biblical principles in the home;
  • is actively involved in the ministries of and regularly attends the services of worship in a local Christian church.

The administration of this Enrolment Policy is the responsibility of the Principal of the College.  All prospective enrolments are subject to an enrolment interview to ensure that all families with children enrolled in the College are supportive of the ethos and policies of the College.

All enquiries and applications for enrolment are to be directed to the Registrar.  At the time of enquiry, a College Prospectus will be sent to each family.  To cover processing costs, a non-refundable Application Fee of $250 for each child must be included with each application for enrolment.

Interview Procedure

The Registrar will arrange an interview for each new applicant and his/her parents (or guardian(s)).  That interview, which will usually be conducted by the relevant Head of School but may be conducted by the Principal, will normally take ½ hour.  Parents must come equipped with any information that may assist in assessment of the application, such as reports, special awards, samples of work, external professional assessments (where appropriate) and any other certificates that the applicant has gained.

The purpose of the interview is for the College to get to know the family and its value system as well as give the College an opportunity to understand the particular gifting of the applicant.  The interview is not meant to be a threatening procedure but parents should be prepared, in the confidential nature of the interview, to be open and honest and answer a variety of related questions.  Both parents and child are requested to attend this interview.  Parents should come prepared to ask any questions about the College and its operation or share any concerns they may have.

Parents will be informed of the decision in relation to their application as soon as possible after the interview.   It should be understood that decisions on enrolment applications are a matter for the Principal.
