Roseville College scholarships are offered to girls entering Senior School.

As a non-selective school with high value on personalised learning and an enviable reputation for its welcoming community, the College has high demand on places, with extensive waitlists in place for some years. With an emphasis on equipping each girl to realise her purpose in life, our Scholarship Program is valued for its role in evincing excellence in learning, such as participation in initiatives such as the internationally accredited Cambridge Courses in Years 9 – 10. As a result, scholarship entry into the Senior School can be competitive.
