Enrolment

The Sophia Mundi enrolment journey begins with an opportunity for us to get to know each other. We invite prospective students and their families to join us on a school tour.

Important note regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus):

In light of the ongoing Victorian Government restrictions due to the Covid-19 Virus, we are once again unable to offer School Tours. Please note that the tours previously scheduled for  Tuesday 4 August, Saturday 22 August and Tuesday 1 September have been cancelled.  

We ask that if you are exploring an enrolment with us beyond 2021, you consider booking a tour date for later this year (we hope that this will be possible).  

We remain committed to finding new and innovative ways of sharing our wonderful school with you.  Perhaps for now, simply click on the links below for a window into life at Sophia Mundi:

In the meantime, if you are seeking an enrolment for your child in 2021 please contact our Registrar on (03) 9419 9229 or by email: registrar@sophiamundi.vic.edu.au.  We would be very happy to arrange an initial on-line meeting and once Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted, discuss making a time for a personal tour to suit your schedule.

 

Application and Enrolment

Applications to enrol your child at Sophia Mundi can be submitted at any time. We encourage early applications to increase the likelihood of securing a place in your preferred year of entry. The acceptance of your application will place your child on our applicant list. Please note that this does not secure an enrolled place; places at Sophia Mundi are offered in order of the date of application. Applicants with a connection to the school will receive priority.

Enrolment steps:

Step 1: Complete and submit an Application Form together with a registration fee of $180 for one applicant and $90 per subsequent applicant. The registration fee is non-refundable.

Step 2: Your application will be placed onto our applicant list for the relevant Class and you will receive confirmation of this from the Registrar.

Step 3:  A family interview with the Principal and/or Head of School and the relevant Class Teacher/Guardian will be scheduled.  You will be required to submit an Enrolment Form along with supporting documents prior to the interview.

Note: Families based interstate or overseas may not be required to attend an enrolment interview prior to an Offer of Enrolment.  Alternatively, an initial introduction via Skype may be offered.  A meeting with the Principal and/or Head of School and the relevant Class Teacher/Guardian will be essential prior to commencing.

Step 4: A further interview/s may be required with our Support Education and/or Welfare staff.

Step 5: A formal Letter of Offer may be issued at the discretion of the Principal, which will ask for the payment of the non-refundable Enrolment Confirmation Fee by the due date.
