The Santa Maria College enrolment policy provides enrolment preference to girls from Catholic primary schools in our region. The College is also mindful of our Good Samaritan tradition, demonstrating an inclusive approach for applicants from non-Catholic families where parents ask for their daughters to be educated in the Good Samaritan tradition.
Parents seeking enrolment into Santa Maria College are invited to attend one of our Talk & Tours to learn more about our College programs and opportunities.
