Thank you for considering Emmaus Christian College for your child’s education.
Our goal is to provide a balanced curriculum that addresses academic and spiritual needs as well as physical and emotional wellbeing, in harmony with Biblical truth. We encourage you to see our College first-hand by joining a Principal's Tour.
Our main enrolment entry points are ELC (Brooklyn Park Campus only), Foundation and Year 7 however we accept enrolments for all year levels where vacancies occur.
We usually conduct interviews two years prior to the proposed year of entry, therefore we encourage you to apply as early as possible. With the acceptance of your application, which will be acknowledged by way of receipt, your child will be placed in the 'waiting pool' for their nominated year of entry, until a place becomes available.
Enrolment places are currently available at Brooklyn Park Campus from 2021 onwards, conditional to an interview.
PLEASE NOTE: There is a wait pool for many year levels at South Plympton Campus. Please contact the Registrar if you would like to discuss this further.
If you would like to talk to us before applying, please complete the Expressions of Interest Form.

Step 2: Enrolment interview
The majority of interviews are conducted two years prior to the nominated commencement date. This process provides the opportunity for the Principal and Heads of School to discuss and determine if Emmaus Christian College is the right school for you and your child along with discovering your child's hopes, dreams and ambitions.

If your child is successful in gaining a place at Emmaus Christian College you will be receive a letter of offer. To confirm your acceptance, you will be required to pay the non-refundable enrolment deposit.
Step 4: Enrolment deposit
Early Learning Centre enrolment deposit: $500.00

The non-refundable deposit is payable per child. Should the amount not be received within the given time frame the offer will be withdrawn and your child will be placed back in the waiting pool.
Change of Middle School Intake Years
The newly elected South Australian State Government has made a commitment to move Year 7 into secondary schools across SA by 2022. To accommodate this change, Emmaus will provide an additional Year 7 class from 2020.
From 2021 Year 8 will no longer be a main entry point. Where vacancies occur between Year 8 to Year 12, positions will be offered according to our Enrolment Policy. Students entering at Year 8 in 2020 will be unaffected and they will be the final Year 8 entry cohort at Emmaus Christian College.

“There is not enough words to describe how grateful I am for my experience at Emmaus and I can't thank the teachers enough for their help in shaping me into the woman I am today.”
Krystal Maunder — Old Scholar 2011
I graduated from Emmaus back in 2011 and ever since then I wish I could go back. Whenever I think of Emmaus I think of home...kind, warm and loving. Being a student who struggled with anxiety and also being dyslexic, I got more than enough support and encouragement from the teachers because they truly cared and wanted me to succeed. There is not enough words to describe how grateful I am for my experience at Emmaus and I can't thank the teachers enough for their help in shaping me into the woman I am today.
