Testing for scholarships for students entering Year 7, 8, 9, 10 or 11 in 2019 is now open.
St John’s Anglican College offers a small number of Scholarships for excellence in Academic, Sporting or Performing Arts pursuits each year. Scholarship holders are expected to maintain development in their area of expertise, represent the College as appropriate, participate fully in all College programs and uphold the College values and expectations at all times.
Scholarships will be based on Merit which will be determined through the Annual Scholarship Testing Program, and a portfolio containing the student’s school reports, NAPLAN and club or representative references.
In the case of Performing Arts, applicants may be required to attend an audition.
In the case of Sport, students are required to commit to play a school sport each trimester as per the sports detailed by The Associated Sports (TAS) competition and may be required to attend trial days. Students who have a high level of achievement in a non-school sport may be considered for a Bursary.
Academic Scholarships are allocated firstly on the basis of the Australia wide test used by independent schools, Edutest, and school reports including NAPLAN results. It is usual practice to award up to four in any year level.
