Boarding Enrolment Process
Enrolment for boarders at Sacred Heart College is primarily for students in Year 9. Limited places are available in other year levels.
Consistent with the Special Character of the College, preference is given to families with an established connection with the Catholic Church and in accordance with the revised guidelines approved by the Catholic Bishops of New Zealand in 2003. For more details, please see our enrolment page.

We appreciate the decision on boarding school is something not to be taken lightly, and expect families to have a healthy curiosity of what it would be like. We also understand there may be many questions you or your son will have. We invite you to please get in touch with our Enrolment Officer, Mrs Nicola Thomas, firstname.lastname@example.org or (09) 529 3660 ext 714, who will be able to provide you with more detail and specific information to help answer your questions.
As part of our helping our prospective families understand a little more about boarding life, we are considering holding a Hostel Open Day later in the year. If this is something you and your son would be interested in coming to, please register your interest below. We envision this being an informal event where parents and boys can spend some time at the Hostel, ask questions and gain more insights into what boarding would be like. Further details will be provided as we work through the preparation for the event.

Tuition and Hostel Fees
The Sacred Heart College Hostel Board sets the fees for boarding. The boarding fees are separate from day-school contributions. This levy is reviewed by the Board in August each year and is subject to change at that time. All tuition fees are to be paid prior to the commencement of study at Sacred Heart College. For International Students, the boarding fees are payable one year in advance.
Please see the Financial Contributions page for more details.
For International Students, please see the International Students page.
