Our enrolment procedure


Kilvington is an independent Melbourne-based Christian school of the Baptist tradition. We are open to families of all faiths or no faith. We offer a friendly atmosphere, a strong sense of community and a rich history, delivering comprehensive education from Early Learning to VCE.

Situated on one campus in the Melbourne suburb of Ormond, our School has been closely linked to the local community since it was founded in 1923. Thousands of students have completed their education at Kilvington, becoming part of a vibrant Alumni network in Australia and overseas.

A Kilvington education is based on four key pillars – Academic Excellence, Character, Community and Care.These pillars are interdependent to help our students become thinking, strong, caring and respectful people who once leaving school, will positively engage with and contribute meaningfully to the world around them.


Before completing our Application for Enrolment, please ensure you have your child’s birth certificate, school reports and any relevant academic, developmental and medical assessments forms to hand as you will need to upload them. You will also be asked to pay a non-refundable Application Fee. 

We will contact you according to entry criteria to attend an interview.

Your child will then be invited to attend an interview, generally with the Principal and Director of Admissions and/or Head of School. The purpose of the interview is to identify your child’s interests and strengths and any areas where extra challenge, support or adjustment may be required, to assist in their appropriate placement.

If we require additional information about your child, please assist or authorise us to obtain such information. There may then be a need for further discussions between us.

If an offer of enrolment is made, you will receive a formal letter, together with a Confirmation of Enrolment form for completion, and a request for an Enrolment Fee.

Once we have receive your completed Confirmation of Enrolment form and Enrolment Fee, we can confirm a place for your child.

Everyday actions speak louder than words, and we see in the culture at Kilvington: kind, caring students, teaching and non-teaching staff who are excellent role models to students; parents and students who are listened to and respected; and students who want to and love coming to School.
