How to Enrol

Selecting Parramatta Marist will give your child the best opportunity to develop academically, spiritually and socially, and in partnership with Catholic education.

Specifically, joining this community means parents/carers and students are committed to:

  • the development of quality relationships with all members of the school community
  • the Catholic identity and evangelising mission of the school within the Church
  • supporting the school in upholding school policies and procedures
  • involvement by parents and caregivers, where possible, in the life of the school.

We accept year 7 applications from the beginning of the school year, for the following year only. Applications for year 7 2021 must be received by 2:00pm on Friday 27 March 2020.

For those wishing to enrol into Year 11, students are asked to attend an Immersion Day at the school before being offered an interview. Dates will be determined for these days early in the year. These days are aimed to give prospective students a sense of the unique teaching and learning style that has made Parramatta Marist High School successful in both its academic and vocational pathways.

Enrolment Procedure

Step 1:

Open Night and Website

Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision. We hold an annual open night where you can learn more about what is offered at Parramatta Marist.

An Open Night will be arranged for prospective 2021 Year 7 students and the date for this will be determined and the beginning of the 2020 school year.

Each session will include school tours, activities and a 30 minute presentation by the School Executive.
