College Board Academic Scholarships

One of the core values of the College is excellence. Students are encouraged to give of their best at all times so that they can make a positive difference in their own life and in the wider community. The College Board strives to fulfill this aim by assisting students to achieve the highest standards in all aspects of the schooling process through the prudent management of school finances and capital development.

Students' achievements are regularly acknowledged through notes of commendation, merit certificates, awards, trophies and lots of verbal praise.

To attract academically able students to the College and support academic excellence within the school the College Board awards a number of Academic Scholarships each year. The Scholarships are awarded to students entering Year 7 and are tenable to the end of Year 10 and provide for half of the annual tuition fee.

Applicants are required to complete a scholarship examination, which is held in held June each year, usually on a Saturday morning.

Parents of academically able students, who will be in entering Year 7 next year, either currently enrolled or seeking enrolment at the College, are invited to apply for their child to sit the College Board's Academic Scholarship Examination.

Applicants must demonstrate:

  • High academic achievement;
  • A commitment to the Catholic ethos and values of the College;
  • Positive motivation, interest and attitude towards their schooling;
  • Sound communication and interpersonal skills;
  • An eagerness to complete their secondary schooling at Ursula Frayne Catholic College; and
  • Evidence of leadership and participation in other areas of personal endeavour. For example, sports, the arts, hobbies, church, school and community service.

The students achieving the highest results will be invited, along with their parents, to an interview with the Principal. The Principal then makes the final decision in regard to the successful applicants.
