FAQ about the Scholarship Program

What happens after my child sits the Scholarship exam?

Once your child has completed their exam, your work is done. All exam papers are returned to Edutest, the papers are marked, and results returned to us with a ranking order for each child. We will notify successful candidates once the results have been returned. You will receive a personal results sheet to the email address with which you registered. Offers begin in April 2021 and continue for several months.

What if my child is unsuccessful in obtaining a Scholarship offer? How do we enrol him/her?

Your child can still be enrolled at The Springfield Anglican College – even if they do not receive a Scholarship. The overwhelming majority of students at TSAC are not Scholarship holders.

How many Scholarships are offered and for how much?

The number of Scholarships offered depends upon the test performance of students each year. For top ranking students we offer a 25% reduction in fees. There is a limited Scholarship Fund upon which we draw. The aim of this funding is to assist as many families as possible to be able to access a TSAC education for their children. Hence, most offers are usually between 10% and 20% reduction in Tuition fees.

What are the “start-up” extra costs for enrolment?

In addition to the Tuition Fees each year there are some start up fees: $100 Application Fee and $600 Entrance Fee, both non-refundable. These are ‘once only fees’ for the life of your child’s enrolment.

Can I organise a meeting with the College staff, if I prefer a more personalised Q & A session?

A personalised tour and/or interview can be arranged at any time. Please contact our College Registrar: enrolments@tsac.qld.edu.au

If my child is in Year 6 at the TSAC Primary Campus, do I need to enrol at the TSAC Secondary Campus?

If your child currently attends The Springfield Anglican College, you do not need to re-enrol for them to come to the Secondary Campus. They are automatically enrolled until the end of Year 12, unless otherwise advised.
