Enrolment at Box Hill High School is consistent with government legislation and departmental policy.
The demand for enrolment at Box Hill High School often exceeds the number of places available. The school has been allocated a designated school zone by the Department of Education & Training (DET) Regional Director and this may be subject to change each year. Enrolment is guaranteed for those students who are permanent residents in the school zone (subject to verification processes).
We can only guarantee enrolment for students living within our designated school zone.
Our School Zone
The Find my School website is the official and most up to date source of school zone maps in Victoria. All government Primary, Secondary and Specialist Schools are on Find my School.

Please note that an offer of enrolment at Box Hill High School is subject to providing the required documentation regarding the permanent residential address. This is the address at which the student permanently resides with parents or legal guardians. Each enrolment application must demonstrate that the student lives within the designated school zone by meeting the 100-point Residential Address Check as outlined by the Department of Education and Training. Information about the types of documentation accepted can be found on our Enrolment Enquiry Form.

English Language Assistance
English Language Schools (ELS) are government primary and secondary schools that cater for new arrival students who are from language backgrounds other than English (LBOTE). Students attend an English Language School for an intensive transition program in English Language prior to enrolment in a mainstream school. The aims are to teach students the language and learning skills to successfully meet the educational demands of schooling and to prepare them for participation in the wider school community.
Students who qualify for English Language assistance will be directed to a government funded language school and subsequent enrolment at government secondary school will be managed by the language school.
Please refer to Blackburn English Language School or any of the government-funded Language schools listed on the DET website.
For further information, please discuss with your child's primary school or language school. If you have a specific query which can't be addressed by your child's school during their Grade 6 year or during their time at their language school, please contact our Enrolment Officer via phone to our School Reception or via email on: email@example.com
