Enrolment timelines

With Geelong and the surrounding areas experiencing unprecedented growth, positions at The Geelong College are in high demand, with extensive waiting lists at most year levels. If you are considering enrolling your child please register for enrolment as early as possible (see below for process), we recommend four to five years prior to entry. We understand that for families moving to the area, or for boarding families, this may not be possible and will endeavour to assist with places where possible.

Entry into 2022

We are currently finalising places for 2022, please contact our admissions staff urgently if you are seeking entry next year.

Entry into 2023

Our intake years Early Learning, Year 4, Year 7 and 9 are currently waitlisted for 2023 but we still encourage families to register an application if they wish to be placed on a waitlist for their preferred year level.

Entry via Junior School

Our wonderful new Junior School which opened in 2020 has allowed us to increase intake numbers from Early Learning to Year 3. If you are considering a Geelong College education for your child, we would encourage you to consider enrolling in our Junior School where, for 2023 and beyond, there are limited places available.
