How to Enrol at Cornerstone College

We encourage families wishing to enrol at Cornerstone to contact Rochelle Rogers, Principal’s Assistant/ Registrar on 8398 6000 or please email Rochelle at rrogers@cornerstone.sa.edu.au

We 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.

Please chat to Rochelle about your child, as well as any special needs they might have as they transition from primary school to middle school.

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.

To commence the application process, please complete and submit an Application Form and return it to Cornerstone College, complete with your non-refundable fee of $50 per child ($100 per family).

On receipt of an Application Form and deposit, your child will be placed on our waiting list.

Within two years of commencement at the College, we will invite you and your child(ren) to attend an interview with the Principal, Mr Craig Fielke.

Please attend this interview with your enrolling child, and their most recent school reports together with their most recent NAPLAN results.

If your son or daughter requires learning support from our Adaptive Education team, please also bring any recent educational psychologists’ reports and any other relevant information that will assist us to plan for the education of your child.

Parents and caregivers should confirm their child’s offer of place in writing together with a $400 deposit. Deposits are held until the student completes Year 12.

As per our Enrolment Policy, priority of place is given to:

  1. Siblings of current students
  2. Students currently enrolled at Lobethal LutheranSt Mark’s, Mt Barker and St Michael’s, Hahndorf

South Australian Education Department Changes

Do you have a son or daughter who is not yet enrolled at Cornerstone, but you’d like to commence in 2021 or 2022?

Parents who have primary students currently in Years 3 and 4 need to be aware that from January 1, 2022 all South Australian Year 7 students will be taught in high school. This means that primary schools will no longer offer Year 7 unless they offer seamless education from Foundation – Year 12.

This transition aligns all South Australian schools with the national curriculum taught in high schools.

Our dedicated Middle School program expanded to include Year 7 students in the purpose built Paideia Building in 2014, and our reputation for academic excellence and pastoral care of students in Years 7-9 is considered industry best by academics globally.

To ensure that your child is prioritised for enrolment in Year 7, 2021/ 2022 or Year 8, 2022, please CLICK HERE to register for a Principal’s Tour, or contact Rochelle Rogers Principal’s Assistant/Registrar on 8398 6009 to arrange a personal tour of the College at a time that suits you.
