Emmaus College – Enrolment Pack

Emmaus College Enrolment Policy was developed after consultation with its Canonical Administrators, Regional Primary Principals and Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools (MACS). The Enrolment policy has been approved by the  Archbishop of Melbourne. This policy is effective for the Year 7 enrolment period of 2022 and beyond.

Please note that the Emmaus College enrolment policy is likely to vary from that of other Catholic secondary schools in the Archdiocese, including those in the Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools (MACS) Eastern Region.

The order of priority is:

  1. Catholic children who are residents of a designated priority parish (see list of priority parishes) and have attended a Catholic primary school in one of those
  2. Children from non-Catholic Eastern churches (i.e. Greek Orthodox, Macedonian Orthodox, Coptic Orthodox, Ukrainian Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, Serbian Orthodox and Other Orthodox) who have attended a priority parish Catholic primary school and are residents of a priority parish (see list of priority parishes below).
  3. Other Christian children who have attended a priority parish Catholic primary school and are residents of a priority parish (see list of priority parishes below).
  4. Non-Christian children who have attended a priority parish Catholic primary school and are residents of a priority parish (see list of priority parishes below).
  5. Catholic children who are residents of a designated priority parish (see list of priority parishes below) and have not attended a Catholic primary
  6. Catholic children from other parishes (for pastoral reasons).
  7. Children from non-Catholic Eastern churches (i.e. Greek Orthodox, Macedonian Orthodox, Coptic Orthodox, Ukrainian Orthodox, Russian Orthodox, Serbian Orthodox and Other Orthodox) who have not attended a Catholic primary school and are residents of a priority parish (see list of priority parishes).
  8. Other Christian children who have not attended a Catholic primary school and are residents of a priority parish (see list of priority parishes below).
  9. Non-Christian children who have not attended a Catholic primary school and are residents of a priority parish (see list of priority parishes below), and
  10. Non-Catholic families that reside outside the priority parish (see list of priority parishes below).

Note:

  • Siblings of children already enrolled at Emmaus College are given
  • Children of Emmaus Alumni are given priority in each of the categories listed

In summary

The major change to the Emmaus Enrolment Policy is that Non-Catholic children residing in a priority parish and attending a Catholic school will now be considered ahead of Catholic children residing in a priority parish and attending a government or independent school.

The Enrolment Policy has been made to support the communities of our Catholic feeder primary schools and parishes.

Please note that due to long term high enrolment demand at Emmaus College, not all categories in the amended Emmaus Enrolment Policy can be guaranteed an enrolment at Emmaus.
