Achieve The Extraordinary

with a Scholarship from Sheldon College

Applications for Academic Scholarships for entry into Years 7 to 12 for 2024 are now open. Scholarship examinations will be held at Sheldon College on 3 March 2023.

Academic Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of student performance on the Scholarship Examination, as well as an interview held with the Principal. 

The Scholarship Examination is produced by ACER Assessment Services and is designed specifically to discriminate among students at the top end of the ability range. It is also a highly useful instrument to assist in the identification of gifted and talented students. Scholarship applications can be made through the ACER Scholarship Tests website at a cost of $125 per application. The closing date for applications is 21 February 2023.
