Box Hill High School is committed to providing academic excellence and we cater for the individual needs of students through both our traditional and innovative programs.  The curriculum is challenging and flexible.  Students are encouraged to be the best they can be in a stimulating and competitive environment. 

Australian Residents

Box Hill High School has been allocated a designated neighbourhood boundary by the Regional Director.  Refer to related enrolment documents for the designated neighbourhood boundary map.

Students will be given places according to the DET regulations, which stipulate the following criteria in order of priority.

  1. Students residing permanently within the Box Hill High School designated neighbourhood boundary (refer map).

  2. Students with an older sibling at the same permanent address concurrently enrolled and attending Box Hill High School.

  3. Students seeking enrolment on specific curriculum grounds.

  4. Students in order of proximity of their permanent residential address to Box Hill High School.

  5. In exceptional circumstances, on compassionate grounds.

Year 7 Transition from Primary School

At the commencement of Term 2 each year, the Department of Education provides all primary schools (State, Catholic and Independent) with relevant information and “Year 6 to Year 7 Transition Forms: Application for Year 7 Placement” forms.  Primary schools are required to make this material available to parents of grade 6 students.  Application for enrolment must be made on this form.  Once completed, it should be returned to your primary school, where it will be verified and forwarded to your preferred secondary school.

If you reside outside the designated neighbourhood boundary and would like your child to attend Box Hill High School in Year 7, you will need to select Box Hill High School as your first choice on the “Application for Year 7 Placement” form.  Please remember that while every effort is made to accommodate all enrolment requests, careful thought should be given to your remaining choices. 

Residential address is the address at which the student permanently resides with parents or legal guardians.  In the case of current grade 6 students, this will be the address on their current school records.  Documentary evidence to support claims of a residential address will be required for enrolment on neighbourhood grounds.


Applying for enrolment in Year 8-12

Families of students wishing to enter at Years 8 – 12, can apply directly to the school by completing an Enrolment Enquiry Form and returning it to the Enrolment Officer, along with the required documentation.  Prior to confirming any enrolment, each applicant and a parent/guardian will attend an interview with the relevant Year Level Coordinator.  In all cases, it should be noted that an application for enrolment does not guarantee a place being available.  Refer to related  enrolment documents for further information. 


Language School

Students who qualify for English Language assistance will be directed to a government funded language school (not available at Box Hill High School).  Please refer to Blackburn English Language School or any of the Government-funded Language schools listed on the DET website.  The language school will direct students to their next school for enrolment.
