Often enrolment in a Catholic school is seen as only available to those who are baptised Catholics. This is not the case.
We do identify strongly as a Catholic College. This means that we exist to live the values of the Gospel and to welcome others to belong to our community of faith, where what we say and do are founded in respect, justice, forgiveness, compassion, love and truth.
Each person is regarded with dignity and acceptance and encouraged to embrace a rich learning for life. All who choose to belong to our community have a place and are welcome to fully participate and to help in building an environment that is safe and supportive.
Over 25 per cent of our intake each year comes from Government and Independent Schools. We recognise ourselves as a school of choice for many young people who have minimal background in religious education but who prefer a senior secondary experience where all the breadth and depth of curriculum and co-curricular opportunity exists, and where there is certainty about the firm foundations of a values-based education surrounded by supportive and encouraging structures.
You are very welcome to join us and make your contribution!
We welcome the opportunity to speak with you about our proud history and tradition and to discuss tailoring an educational pathway that best suits the aspirations of your child.
Information Evenings for parents and prospective students of the College are held. These evenings are an introduction to what life is like at Guilford Young College and part of the time is given up to some current and past students giving a frank account of what Guilford Young College has done for them in their transition to adulthood.
An Enrolment Application Form and supporting document can be downloaded here (see below). These documents contain important information, including some College policies and terms and conditions of enrolment.
We are committed to assisting families who otherwise would be unable to afford a Catholic education. Our mission is to provide support to students who clearly communicate their preference for a Catholic education but who may be denied it purely on the basis of financial hardship. The College is able to provide bursaries and fee reduction to families upon application and a simple means test process.
Fees payments are spread over the year and can be direct-debited to assist with monthly budgeting.
Please talk to us about your needs!
