How to Apply

Applying for a place at Caulfield Grammar School as an Overseas student involves a number of steps: 

Step 1. Apply for enrolment

Please complete this online enrolment application form and your child’s name will be placed on a waitlist for the year of entry. If applying for more than one child, complete a separate application for each child. 

Step 2. Vacancy check

After processing your application, our Admissions Team will contact you to let you know if a place is available for your entry year and year level.

Step 3. AEAS Entrance Test

If a vacancy exists, your child will be encouraged to undertake an AEAS Entrance Test to assess their level of English and general ability. The assessment is designed by Australian Educational Assessment Services (AEAS) and supervised by our authorised representative agents.

AEAS is the only recognised testing procedure for Caulfield Grammar School for students currently studying overseas. All costs associated with the AEAS testing are to be paid by the applicant. Please refer to the AEAS website for indicative costing and description of testing.

Once assessment is complete, the School will advise the family, through the representative, of the result of their application. The representative will then ensure that the necessary forms and any other information are completed correctly.

Step 4. Offer of Enrolment

The School may make an Offer of Enrolment, subject to a place being available, the AEAS test result, the amount of English preparation required, the student’s age and a current school report.

If an Offer of Enrolment is made, the following fees are requested:

• Application fee (non-refundable)
• Confirmation of an Offer of Enrolment (non-refundable)
• 50% of Tuition fees for the first year
• 50% of Boarding fees for the first year
• Boarding deposit if applicable

To accept an Offer of Enrolment, the requested fees must be paid prior to the nominated date (normally 30 days from issue). Once fees are paid, an electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE) and Confirmation of Appropriate Accommodation and Welfare Arrangements (CAAW) if applicable are issued. These are required for application to the Australian Government for a student visa.

Caregiver and Homestay details will need to be finalised by the family with ISA Guardianship and AHN Homestay as appropriate.
