Enrolments

At Cornerstone College, we know that students who feel safe, valued and connected are more likely to succeed in their learning.

We also know that the choice of school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent. We want to assist you in any way we can.

Our team are here to talk to you about your child, as well as any special needs they might have as they transition from primary school to middle school.

Of course, your child will want to be part of this process too.

That is why we encourage all students to spend a day at Cornerstone, to meet new friends and to experience how an education at Cornerstone will assist them to love, learn and grow.

Our main intake years are Year 7 and Year 10, however, we welcome enrolment enquiries at all year levels.

We are passionate about offering the very best education in the Adelaide Hills.

For assistance with your enrolment enquiry, please contact Helen Charles, Principal’s Assistant/ Registrar on 8398 6000.

 

Enrolment Process

Upon enquiry, families will be sent the College prospectus which will contain an application form for each student wishing to be enrolled. A non-refundable fee of $50 per child ($100 per family) is required to secure a place for a student on the waiting list.

Student interviews take place two years prior to the starting date. Should your child be successful in gaining an interview, you will be contacted to arrange a convenient time with the Principal and asked to bring along the enrolling student, their last school report and NAPLAN results. If support will be needed from the Adaptive Education Department, psychology reports or any other relevant information will also need to be provided. If a position is offered, families are asked to provide a $400 deposit which will be held until the student completes Year 12.

As per our Enrolment Policy, positions will be offered in the following order:

  1. Siblings
  2. Lutheran feeder Primary Schools (Lobethal Lutheran, St Mark’s, St Michael’s, Spring Head)
  3. Date of application.
