Enrolment

Thank you for considering Catholic Regional College Melton for your child's secondary education.

As a Catholic College with Faith at our core it is an expectation that prospective families are committed to the Catholic faith and supportive of the educational aims of the Catholic Regional College Federation when accepting an offer of enrolment.

Enrolments in the Federation of Catholic Regional College are dependent on:

1. The recommendation of your Parish Priest who attests to your support of the Church and Parish.

2. Support of the Policies of the College.

Federation of Catholic Regional College Enrolment Policy

1. Catholic Regional College gives priority in the following order:
a. Students that have a sibling currently attending the College.
b. Catholic students in Priority Parish primary schools, residing in the College zone.
c. Catholic students in other Catholic primary schools, residing in the College zone.
d. Catholic students who are residents of a designated College zone who attend non-Catholic primary schools.
e. Students from non-Catholic Eastern churches residing in the College zone.
f. Students from non-Catholic Eastern churches residing outside the College zone.
g. Non-Catholic students in Catholic primary schools, residing in the College zone.
h. Non-Catholic students in Catholic primary schools, residing outside the College zone.
i. Non-Catholic students who have not attended a Catholic primary school.

2. The offer of a place is dependent upon the family’s acceptance of the Mission, Values and Policies of the College, and agreement to the terms and conditions of enrolment, as outlined in the Explanatory Statement accompanying the enrolment form.

3. The Colleges follow the Catholic Education Melbourne enrolment procedures and timeline. These are published on the College website.

4. The Federation Principals work together, and with Principals of other secondary Colleges, to ensure that all Catholic children living within the Priority parishes can access Catholic secondary education. This may mean being offered a place outside the zone.

5. The particular pastoral needs and circumstances of individual students are considered by the Federation Principals in applying the enrolment criteria and in making enrolment decisions.

6. Students from outside the zone, not from priority parishes and those from other faiths, denominations and traditions can only be considered for enrolment if places are available.

7. The Principal of each College has the right to use discretion in the matter of enrolments.

    Unenrolling - student exit


    Students transferring to another secondary school

    Parents and guardians of students who are leaving the College and transferring to another secondary school are required to complete and return the CRC Melton Exit Form to the Director of Community Relations by emailing enrolments@crcmelton.com.au.

    The Exit Form is required by the College and is used for the settlement of family accounts. Parents will be charged fees until the form is received and it is important that the official exit date of the student is included. The form is available below.

    Students not transferring to another secondary school

    Parents and guardians of students under the age of 17 who are not transferring to another secondary school need to complete and return two forms.

    1. The CRC Melton Exit Form.
    2. The Victorian Government Transition from School Form. Students under the age of 17 need to seek an exemption to leave school for TAFE, Apprenticeships, Work and Alternative Job Training options (available below).

    Families can assist the College by completing sections A,B,C and E of the Transition from School Form. The College will complete Section D and sign Section E of the form.

    Once completed and endorsed by the College, the Transition from School Form will be sent back to the family for use in enrolment at TAFE or training. The form may also be required for the employers’ records.

    Please note: Students in Year 10 to 12 who are not transferring to another secondary school will be required to have an interview with the Pathways Coordinator before the Transition from School Form will be signed by the Principal.
