Find a Public School


ACT K-12 students living within a Priority Enrolment Area (PEA) of a school are guaranteed a place at that school regardless of when they apply. PEA is determined by your residential address. You can check if you have priority enrolment at this school by viewing the ACT Schools Map on the ACTmapi website. If a school has capacity after enrolling students from its PEA, it may offer enrolment to ACT students who live outside the PEA. Certain schools, including Early Childhood Schools; Telopea Park School (Primary) and Specialist Schools do not have PEAs.

Find Schools and PEAs via the ACT Schools Map

An interactive map of the 2019 PEAs, where you can search for a school by home address and school name, is available at ACT Schools Map. Alternatively, you look up PEAs by suburb or by school below.
