Pedare Christian College values excellence and diversity and seeks to recognise this through our scholarship program. The scholarship program celebrates and fosters excellence in academic achievement and music performance, and recognises students who take responsibility for, and are proactive in, the development of their own education.

Importantly, the program provides opportunities for students to attend Pedare who may not otherwise be able to do so.

A limited number of Academic, Music and All-Rounder scholarships are awarded each year and are reviewed at each reporting period. Scholarships provide partial remission of tuition fees at the discretion of the Principal.

For further information in relation to the College’s scholarship program, please contact the Community Relations Manager, Julie Holland at or phone 8280 1700.

Academic Scholarships for Year 7 in 2024

Application for an Academic Scholarship is open to both new students and to current Pedare students, who will enter Year 7 in 2024.

Applicants are required to register online to sit the Australian Cooperative Entry Program (ACEP) Scholarship Test, which is administered and marked by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER). Applicants are required to demonstrate a range of skills such as the ability to interpret, infer, deduce and think critically. The tests are not curriculum based and do not test the ability to retrieve learned knowledge, nor are they diagnostic.

The value of the scholarships is up to 50% tuition fee remission with Scholarships being reviewed on an annual basis to monitor the student’s continuing performance. It is expected that recipients will complete their schooling at Pedare.

The ACER scholarship examination will be held at Pedare Christian College, 12-30 Surrey Farm Drive, Golden Grove on Saturday, 4 February, 2023.

Online registrations are now open and the closing date for registrations is Thursday 19 January 2023. The fee to sit the scholarship test is $120.

Students in Years 5 in 2022, can apply for the Level 1 Scholarship Test for Year 7 in 2024.

Please follow the link to register.

Applications for Academic Scholarships for Years 10 and 11 in 2024 will open early in 2023.
