Thank you for considering Emmaus Christian College for your child’s education. Our goal is to provide a balanced curriculum that addresses academic and spiritual needs as well as physical and emotional well-being, in harmony with Biblical truth. We encourage you to see our College first-hand by joining a Principal's Tour.
Our main enrolment entry points are ELC, Foundation, Year 7 and Year 8 (ending in 2021) however we accept enrolments for all year levels where vacancies occur.
We usually conduct interviews two years prior to the proposed year of entry, therefore we encourage you to apply as early as possible. With the acceptance of your application, which will be acknowledged by way of receipt, your child will be placed on a waiting list for their nominated year of entry, until a place becomes available.
We are unable to accept application from families and or students who are affiliated with another faith tradition or church whose beliefs are in direct contrast to those of our College (as outlined in our Statement of Faith).
Change of Middle School Intake Years
The newly elected South Australian State Government has made a commitment to move Year 7 into secondary schools across SA by 2022. To accommodate this change, Emmaus will provide an additional Year 7 class from 2020.
From 2021 Year 8 will no longer be a main entry point. Where vacancies occur between Year 8 to Year 12, positions will be offered according to our Enrolment Policy. Students entering at Year 8 in 2020 will be unaffected and they will be the final Year 8 entry cohort at Emmaus Christian College.

“There is not enough words to describe how grateful I am for my experience at Emmaus and I can't thank the teachers enough for their help in shaping me into the woman I am today.”
Krystal Maunder — 2011 Graduate
I graduated from Emmaus back in 2011 and ever since then I wish I could go back. Whenever I think of Emmaus I think of home...kind, warm and loving. Being a student who struggled with anxiety and also being dyslexic, I got more than enough support and encouragement from the teachers because they truly cared and wanted me to succeed. There is not enough words to describe how grateful I am for my experience at Emmaus and I can't thank the teachers enough for their help in shaping me into the woman I am today.
