Academic Scholarships and Bursaries

Academic Scholarships will be offered to boys eligible to enter Year 7 in 2018, of academic potential whose parents value the type of education offered by the College. The Academic Scholarship will be conducted as part of the Scholarship Selection Test (SST). All Academic Scholarships are administered by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER).

Scholarships will be awarded to students based on achievement in the examination and interview with the Headmaster.

Academic Scholarships carry full or part remission of tuition fees and are conditional upon sound academic progress and actual participation in the extra curricular life of the College.

On receipt of registration, sample questions will be available online to each candidate to provide ample opportunity to prepare for the tests.

The Academic Scholarships will be held at our Junior School Campus, 75 Lansell Road, Toorak from 9.00am to 12.00pm. Candidates should assemble in the quadrangle of the Junior School by 8.45am. Candidates will then be directed to the Examination Centre.

Your son will be required to bring a light snack (to be eaten during the break), two HB or B pencils, a pencil eraser and two blue or black pens. Do not bring rulers, mathematical instruments of any kind, books or papers. All other material will be supplied.

The Junior Campus is conveniently located 100 metres from Heyington Station on the Glen Waverley line which may assist your son in travelling to the College by public transport.

While the examination is in progress, parents are invited for light refreshments in the Boyd Egan Hall.
