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 has been provisionally registered for 12 months, 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 do not need 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
- financial viability of your school.
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.
