To be eligible for the registration of a new school you must first receive in-principle approval of your plans. If you are granted in-principle approval, you may then apply for provisional registration, once your school is provisionally registered you may apply for registration.
If you already operate a registered non-government school you may apply for registration of an additional campus or educational year level. The process is similar to the registration of a new school outlined above. However, you are not required to seek provisional registration before applying to be registered.
Factors that will be considered during the registration process include the:
- Established policies, facilities and equipment;
- Intended curriculum;
- Safety and welfare of students;
- Nature and content of courses offered in comparison with government school courses; and
- Financial viability of your school.
Please be aware you must also have developed a process that ensures you maintain an accurate record of students enrolled at your school.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information regarding eligibility requirements.
