Academic Excellence and General Excellence Scholarships 2018- APPLICATIONS OPEN 9.00am Monday, November 7, 2016
Christian College Geelong is pleased to offer a number of Academic Excellence and General Excellence Scholarships for entry into the 2018 school year at Year 5 or Year 7 level at Middle School Highton or at the Bellarine Campus, and at Year 10 level at the Senior Campus Waurn Ponds.
These Scholarships have been designed primarily to encourage and support new and current students who wish to attend Christian College Geelong and who demonstrate high levels of academic excellence, character and citizenship.
THE SELECTION PROCESS
All scholarship applicants will be invited to take a Scholarship Test at Christian College Middle School,18 Burdekin Road, Highton on Saturday March 25, 2017 between 8.45am and 12pm.
A Middle School Campus tour will be offered at 9am on the Scholarship Test day.
After reviewing the results of the Scholarship Test, the selection panel will invite a shortlist of candidates to attend an individual interview. Test results will be made available to the parents of each sitting candidate.
Invitations to attend an interview will not necessarily mean a scholarship will be offered.
Following the interview, successful applicants will be notified in writing by the Principal, and scholarship offers need to be accepted within the stipulated time.
Results of scholarship selection are confidential and will not be released by the College. This will remain a private arrangement between the family and Christian College Geelong.
The decision of Christian College Geelong is final, and no subsequent discussion will be entered into.
CONDITIONS OF ACCEPTANCE
Scholarships will be awarded on the understanding that the student will maintain high standards of academic achievement, participate to the best of his or her ability in College activities and adhere to the College rules, policies and procedures.
The successful student will strive to uphold the Christian values of Truth, Love, Hope, Grace and Faith at all times.
The recipient of the scholarship will pursue their education at Christian College Geelong, wherever possible, through to Year 12. Scholarships will be reviewed annually and may be withdrawn if the conditions of acceptance are not being met.
