How to Enrol

Selecting Gilroy Catholic College Castle Hill, will give your child the best opportunity to develop academically, spiritually and socially, and in partnership with our parish and the wider Catholic education community.

It involves a commitment to work with the school and support the philosophy, values and aims of Catholic education.

Specifically, joining this community means parents/carers and students are committed to:

  • the Catholic identity and evangelising mission of the school within the Church
  • supporting the school in upholding school policies and procedures
  • the development of quality relationships with all members of the school community
  • involvement by parents and caregivers, where possible, in the life of the school. 

The enrolment policy for Parramatta Diocesan Catholic Schools offers Catholic families greater choice by allowing them to apply for enrolment at a Catholic school anywhere in the diocese. Where places are limited, enrolment priority will be given to:

  • Catholic children who live in the local parish and surrounding parishes; and 
  • Children of families who actively participate in the life of the school and the local parish community.
