Year 6 to Year 7 Specialist Enrolment Process for Students entering Year 7 in 2023

The Process

  1. Interested families/students must submit an Expression of Interest form by 3 June 2022, whilst also processing their Primary School Year 7 application form complying with the DET Transition placement policy.
  2. The applicant will be invited to a MSA Immersion Day, Tuesday 7 June, the day encompasses a Numeracy evaluation, Mathematics workshop alongside a STEM bases workshop through which we assess student’s suitability for the MSA program. The MSA Immersion Day will be held at the Western Campus, Paratea Drive, Rowville so please ensure an Expression of Interest form has been submitted prior.

Parents will be notified of the outcome of this in line with the DET Year 6 to Year 7 Transition Timeline and Placement Policy: all Primary Schools will notify parents in writing the Secondary School they have been offered on Wednesday 20 July, we as a school are then not permitted to email parents  until Monday 22 August an offer of enrolment into our specific program. If successful in the MSA assessment you will receive an offer of enrolment within MSA, if unsuccessful and we have received your DET application form from your Primary School we will then offer a place within our General Excellence Program. We are not permitted to provide outcomes of assessments prior to this date due to the DET timeline.

Through the DET placement policy you are applying to the school and not the specific program and as a school we currently do not have any enrolment restrictions at this time and can provide a place within the General Excellence Program. Once an offer of enrolment is received you can then decide to accept or decline this place within our compass enrolment portal. If you decide to decline the place please also refer back to your Primary School to process your application form to the other school preferences you may have listed.

You can also then request in writing feedback on your child’s assessment by emailing administration@rowvillesc.vic.edu.au and we will then endeavour to respond to these requests as soon as possible. Our Assistant Principal likes to offer feedback personally therefore you can appreciate this may take some time to respond to all requests.

Please visit our Prospective Parents & Families Information page for insight into Rowville Secondary College.
