Thank you for considering The Geelong College for your child's education.

Please note that in completing the application form below you are applying for enrolment. We do have waiting lists at most year levels so cannot guarantee a place in the school. We encourage you to apply within the first year of your child's life for entry to Early Learning, Foundation or Year 7 which are our intake years. If you are applying for years other than these, or within three years of starting please contact our admissions team at to ascertain the likelihood of a place prior to submitting an application.
