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 the next year must be received by the closing date in late March of the year prior to commencement.
