A guide to enrolment

Enrolling with ACG Parnell is simple – our admissions team will guide you through the process, and make sure you are kept up-to-date throughout. The steps are outlined below.

We are interviewing now for 2025 and beyond. Demand for places is high, and we recommend that you apply at your earliest convenience.

Limited places are available in 2024 with many year levels already at capacity with waitlists. 

Our Admissions Team will assist with further information on the various year levels at capacity or spaces available.

Step 1: Apply

We welcome applications at any time, including for a mid-year start. However, we encourage you to apply early to ensure space is available.

The easiest way to make an application is online.

Step 2: Interview

Once we receive your application, we’ll invite you and your child to an interview. This usually takes around 30 minutes.

You may need to bring copies of:

  • Your child’s passport or birth certificate
  • Their most recent school report
  • Standardised test results from current school if available (for example, PAT, e-asTTle, NCEA for Senior students etc)

Step 3: Offer

We assess your application and take into account your child’s needs.

Your child will need a level of fluency in English to understand the classroom instruction, and to express themselves confidently in both oral and written situations. ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) teaching and support is available for students whose first language is not English.

You will be notified of the result of your application within seven days of your interview.

Step 4: Acceptance

If your child is offered a place, you will need to confirm your acceptance in writing and pay the acceptance fee. Then it’s time to organise uniforms, school transport, and wait for their start date.

We’re always thrilled to welcome new students to ACG Parnell.
