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 2023 must be received by 2:00pm on Friday 25 March 2022.

If you have any enquiries regarding enrolment please contact Parramatta Marist weekdays between 8:00am and 4:00pm on (02) 9848 7100 or send us an email.



Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision.

We hold an annual open night in March where you can learn more about what is offered at Parramatta Marist.

For those wishing to enrol into Years 8 - 11, students are asked to attend an Immersion Day at the school before being offered an interview. Immersion Days are held throughout the year as required. 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.
