It’s time to get organised for 2021.
Enrolments are now open for all students from Preschool to Year 12 for next year. Enrolment applications made between 28 April 2020 and 5 June 2020 will receive an offer from 27 July 2020. This provides families with time to submit applications before 5 June and be included in the initial round of offers.
Your local public school has a place for your child to learn, develop and reach their potential. Every student from Kindergarten to Year 12 is guaranteed a place in their local public school (determined by Priority Enrolment Area). To find your local school, look at the map on the Priority Enrolment Area page.
All of our preschools offer high-quality early childhood education. Each four-year-old child in the ACT is guaranteed a place in a public preschool. However, due to capacity constraints at some sites, children are not guaranteed a place at the preschool of your preference. If you do not receive an offer for your preferred preschool, the Directorate will find you a place at the nearest preschool with capacity to your home. This will not affect your right to a place at your local public school for kindergarten.
Many of our schools, particularly high schools and colleges, hold open nights or information sessions for families to have a look around the school and chat to teachers and current students. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, that can’t happen at the moment. Families can check out their local school’s website or social media channels to get more information. Many schools have created videos to give families a taste of what they are all about. Alternatively, give your local school a call – see Public Schools in the ACT for contact information.
