We welcome Scholarship Applications. At Foundation Christian College we want to raise leaders in our community who strive towards honoring God and their families in all they do. We work with students to bring out their God-given gifts and talents and a scholarship enables scholarship recipients extra opportunities to excel.
— Mr Stanway, Principal
THE SELECTION PROCESS
All scholarship applicants will be required to have an interview with the College Principal and relevant Head of School. To confirm their place at the College, applicants will also be required to complete our online enrolment application form and provide the required documentation.
Results of scholarship selection are confidential and will not be released by the College. This will remain a private arrangement between the family and Foundation Christian College.
Academic Scholarships will require a further ACER Test and test results will be made available to the parents of each sitting candidate. The decision of College is final, and no subsequent discussion will be entered into.
