Good Counsel College accepts enrolment applications at any time of the school year for students in Years 7-12.

It is an expectation that parents seeking to enrol their young people at Good Counsel College will give their full support to the College’s Vision and Guiding Principles. While many of our students are Catholic, all young people are welcome.
Enrolment is not determined on the grounds of race, cultural background, faith, gender, intellectual or physical ability. However, the College will be discerning about the family and young person showing a genuine desire to be part of our learning community, follow our ethos and meet our expectations in relation to learning, behaviour, participation and cooperation.
