Enrol For Prep 2024

Altona College invites enrolment applications from prospective families.


Prep 2024 Information sessions will be held at the College Open Evening on Wednesday April 5. Please do not hesitate to contact our office for further information or a phone call with a member of our leadership.


The Department of Education (DE) has released a new statewide Foundation (Prep) enrolment timeline.

The timeline advises families when and how to enrol their child into Foundation (Prep) at a Victorian government primary school, including Altona College.


The new timeline will apply for children starting Foundation (Prep) in 2024. All government primary schools will follow the new timeline in 2023 to support Foundation (Prep) enrolments for the 2024 school year.


You can find information and resources about the new timeline, including factsheets, at: Enrolling in Foundation (Prep). You can also download the ‘Foundation (Prep) Enrolment Information Pack for Parents/Carers for the 2024 school year’ from the Starting School webpage here.


You can apply to enrol your child in Foundation (Prep) 2024 at Altona College.

What you need to do:

  1. Contact our school Altona College to book a school tour or to learn more about our school and the enrolment application process. Tour dates will be released prior to end of term 1.
