St Albans Secondary College has various enrolment procedures in place to accommodate entry at different year levels, and at different times of the school year.
Designated Neighbourhood Area
For children in Victoria, the designated neighbourhood Government school is the school that is nearest the student’s home. The Department of Education and Training in Victoria has provided a designated neighbourhood area map for St Albans Secondary College.
Department policy requires that all students are entitled to a place at their designated neighbourhood school.
Students who live outside the designated neighbourhood area will be prioritised for enrolment according to whether they have siblings at the school, any special circumstances, and curriculum grounds, depending on availability of places.

Year 7 Enrolment
The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development has a clearly defined process for students transitioning from primary school into secondary education.
During term 2, all grade 6 students will be issued with the Enrolment Application form by their primary school. Parents are asked to nominate up to four secondary schools, in order of preference, which they would like their child to attend for their secondary education. This form needs to be completed and returned to the primary school. Primary schools then send SASC the information pertaining to students who have included our school on their list of preferences. Early in term 3 families will receive notification of enrolment, and additional enrolment forms to complete.
In term 4, SASC will host Parent and Student Orientation Sessions for those who will be joining our school community the following year. Parents who attend the Parent Orientation session will meet the Principal and Year Level Coordinators, learn about school policies and the year 7 program. While there, they will be given the opportunity to complete booklists and purchase school uniforms.
The Student Orientation Day will allow students to meet their classmates and teachers, form new friendships and gain the confidence to have a seamless transition into secondary education.
If enrolling for year 7 directly from another secondary college please use the Consideration for Enrolment form, which is available below, or from the general office. Please note that completing this form is not a confirmation of enrolment. You will be contacted by a sub-school leader to arrange an appointment if a place is available.
Year 8 – 12 Enrolments
Please complete the Consideration for Enrolment form for all Year 8 – 12 enrolment enquiries. This form can also be downloaded, below, or can be obtained from the general office. Submit the completed form to the office, along with a photocopy of the student’s most recent school report.
Please note that completing this form is not a confirmation of enrolment. You will be contacted by a sub-school leader to arrange an appointment if a place is available.
