Finding Your Local School

Each ACT public school gives priority to the enrolment of children living in its Priority Enrolment Area (PEA). ACT public schools are non-selective. If a school has room available after accepting students from its PEA, it may offer places to students who live outside the area.

Further information about Priority Enrolment Areas.
