About Enrolment and Apply Enrolments

As a highly regarded Catholic independent girls school for Years 7 to 12 girls, demand for places at St Rita’s College is always high. We are committed to educating girls in partnership with their families and building their lives based on the values Jesus lived and taught.

Applications must be made online and are accepted from Year 3 of primary school. A non-refundable application fee of $110 is required at the time of application.

We also accept enquiries for enrolments in other Year levels. For enrolment other than Year 7, please contact our Registrar about vacancies prior to lodging an online application at enrol@stritas.qld.edu.au

Year 5 at St Rita's College

St Rita’s College has applied to the Non-State Schools Accreditation Board, known as NSSAB, for approval to introduce Year 5 into our College from 2022. 

Our main intake Year is currently Year 7. If our application to NSSAB is successful, our main intake years will become both Year 5 and Year 7, with the greater number of places still being offered for Year 7. 

N.B.: Until the outcome of the NSSAB application is known, please be aware that an application for Year 5 entry at this point in time is regarded as an Expression of Interest only. This website will be updated once the outcome of the NSSAB application is known. Should you wish to proceed with a Year 5 preferred entry prior to this, the non-refundable application fee still applies.

Important information about enrolment

It is important for St Rita’s to build a rich tapestry of heritage and we abundantly welcome new family associations each year. Due to the large number of enrolment applications each year, in the determination of placements preference will generally be given in the following order of priority:

1.     Siblings of current or past students;

2.     Daughters of past students;

3.     Catholic students who are practicing members of their parish;

4.     Students who belong to other faith traditions;

5.     The College’s ability to cater for the specific talents and needs of each student.

The Principal reserves the right to enrol students at her discretion.

Parents enrolling their daughters at St Rita’s College will be made aware of and must accept the College’s expectations of the student in terms of attendance at formal religious education lessons and religious exercises and have a commitment to the specific purposes of St Rita’s as a Catholic school as outlined in the College Mission Statement.

Documents needed for enrolment application

Please have the following documentation ready before you commence your application.

  • Most recent school report;
  • Her Birth, Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist certificates.

You will also be required to forward a copy of your daughter’s Year 3 and Year 5 NAPLAN when received. Applications for higher Year levels must include Year 7 and Year 9 NAPLAN as applicable.
