The Kilvington Scholarship Program
It is an expectation that successful candidates will participate fully in school life and commit to the School through to the end of Year 12. Scholarships are tenable up to and including Year 12 and are open to prospective and current students. All scholarships are offered at the Principal’s discretion.
All candidates are required to sit the ACER academic test to be held at Kilvington on Saturday, 25 February 2017. Should you be unable to attend on this date you cannot be considered for our Scholarship Program. An information evening will be held for students and their families on Tuesday 21 February, time to be confirmed.
