A one-stop-shop for our parents to find everything they need to know.


Thank you for your interest in enrolment at Covenant Christian School. We are accepting applications for Year 7 2023 and beyond, and accepting applications for most other grades for 2022.

Covenant Christian School was established to provide a Christian education for the children of parents who believe that Jesus Christ is the Lord of every aspect of life, including education. To this end, Covenant functions as an extension of the home by actively encouraging children to live in a way that honours Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord. Therefore, a Christian perspective forms an integral part of the teaching from Prep to Year 12.  

Our main entry levels are Prep, Kindergarten, Year 5, Year 7 and Year 11. 

Enquiries and applications are welcome for vacancies for most grades for 2022 and beyond. We recommend that applications are submitted at least two years in advance if possible or one year in advance for Prep, however, we welcome applications at any time.

Enrolment FAQ

Applications for enrolment must be made on the appropriate form and accompanied by an application fee and supporting documents. 

What documents are required for an application?
  • Completed application for enrolment form. See Application Information
  • Australian birth certificate or overseas birth certificate. If not born in Australia, please also provide a copy of your child's passport and visa showing Australian residency status or Certificate of Australian Citizenship.
  • Last two school reports and NAPLAN results, if applicable.
  • Reports from specialists and additional medical history, if applicable.

What age can my child commence in Kindergarten?

Children enrolling at school for the first time will be five years of age on or before 31 May in the year of entry into Kindergarten depending on the school’s assessment of the child's readiness. 

There is no minimum age requirement for other grades for students moving from another Australian school to Covenant.

What are the major entry points?

The main entry points are Prep, Kindergarten, Year 5, Year 7 and Year 11. There are occasional vacancies in other years.

What happens after I submit an application?

All applications received are placed on the waiting list for the year applied for. We usually receive more applications than places available for the main entry years. If at the end of the year a place is still not available, each family will be given the option to remain on the waiting list for future years.

Will I be invited to an enrolment interview?

Due to the high volume of applications for some grades, not everyone will be invited to an interview. When considering interview invitations, some things we take into consideration are:

  • vacancies in the requested grade
  • family involvement with a Christian church and commitment to the basis and aims of the school 
  • willingness to be part of our Christ-centred school community.

The school will contact you if and when a position becomes available to arrange a family enrolment interview with you and your child. The interview is conducted with the Registrar and a member of the Executive team. At the interview the school's expectations of parents and students are discussed. Not all applicants will receive an invitation to an enrolment interview. Once an interview has been conducted, successful enrolment applicants are sent a written Letter of Offer, Enrolment Contract to sign and non-refundable Enrolment Bond to pay. 

Do I have to attend church to apply to Covenant?

Covenant Christian School gives priority of enrolment to Christian families who personally attest their agreement with the Covenant Statement of Belief and who regularly attend a Christian church (at least most weeks). Your church minister or pastor should be asked to complete the Minister's Reference Form which is then returned directly to the Registrar. See Application Information

When should I apply for enrolment?

Due to the high demand for places it is recommended that parents apply well before the desired year of entry. Family enrolment interviews begin 12 to 24 months prior to the date of commencement. We will advise you by email that the application has been successfully lodged.

Does Covenant offer scholarships?

Covenant Christian School does not offer academic, music or sporting scholarships. A limited number of fee relief bursaries may be available on application.

If we are relocating from overseas and our school calendar year is different, when is the best time to relocate?

The school year starts in late January in Australia. Students relocating from overseas are encouraged to start at the beginning of our school year if possible. A mid-year entry may be possible but cannot be guaranteed. We seek to place students in the year group where they are of the same or similar age. The number of years of schooling and their current academic year is also taken into consideration. Generally, for students transferring from a school in the Northern Hemisphere who have commenced Year 5 by October, they are likely to be looped back to Year 5 at Covenant the following January. Similarly, a student completing Year 9 in June would be enrolled in Year 9 in Semester 2 at Covenant.

How far do students travel?

Students at Covenant Christian School travel from a wide area including the Northern Beaches, Upper North Shore, Ryde and Chatswood. The school is well serviced by buses from many of these areas.

Does Covenant enrol international students?

Covenant Christian School embraces students from a diverse range of nationalities.  

Overseas students must provide the school with an eligible visa to maintain enrolment. Please enquire with the Registrar regarding your eligibility for enrolment. The school accepts applicants with most Temporary or Permanent visas but cannot enrol children travelling on their own student visa.

We are not able to enrol students on a Student Visa 500.
